Will women get relief in the general budget?

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present the general budget in Parliament on July 23. It is believed that she may make many important announcements for women in the general budget this time. Subsidies may be given for everything from cooking gas to health services. Also, to empower women, tax exemptions may be announced for women entrepreneurs including promotion of Lakhpati Didi Yojana. The hopes of millions of women in the country are pinned on all these announcements by the Finance Minister, who are confident that this time the government’s decision will bring a change in their lives.

Increasing the reach of Lakhpati Didi

To make women financially capable, the government launched Lakhpati Didi Yojana in the interim budget 2024. In this, Lakhpati Didi is a member of a self-help group and can earn Rs 1 lakh or more in a year. Rekha, who lives in Rasoolpur Nawada, Noida, earns a lot by joining this scheme. Now she no longer has to depend on her husband’s income. She can now meet her children’s school fees and other household expenses. She hopes that this time the government will further expand its scope in the general budget so that other women like her can also stand on their feet. Let us tell you that Finance Minister Nirmala Sitamaran has already increased the target of making Lakhpati Didi from 2 crore to 3 crore.

Women should get a place in economic participation

Meenakshi Aggarwal, a resident of Ghaziabad, works in an IT company. In addition, she also runs her own business part-time, selling handmade items. She wants to take up this business full-time and raise its level. For this, they need funds. She wants to offer loans on favourable terms to increase women’s participation in business and strengthen them financially. Apart from this, their access to microfinance should be facilitated. Also, get the benefit of possible tax exemptions and deductions for investing in women-run businesses.

Subsidy for essential items, including health services.

Geeta Kumari, a resident of Moradabad, says that her husband works in a factory, due to which it is difficult for her family to survive. In such a situation, they find it difficult to manage their household due to the rising prices of expensive medicines and cylinders. To maintain their health, they have to think of not only buying fruits and milk but also two meals a day. Like Geeta, there are many needy women in the country who are unable to take care of their health due to lack of money. In such a situation, their demand is that they should be given subsidy for essential things like health services and cooking gas. Free health camps should be organised so that their health can be monitored. Experts believe that the Finance Minister can fulfil these demands of women in this general budget. The government can increase the budget for Anganwadi and Nutrition 2.0 programmes to enable better health of women.
