The government is working on a set of measures to remove friction points in the economy with a view to ensuring easy availability of funds to productive sectors and stimulate overall growth, sources said. However, the strategy being worked out does not include proposal for reduction of GST rates as the government believes that taxes are already lower than in the past, they added.
The set of measures being firmed up by the finance ministry is based on the feedback received by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman during her interactions with different stakeholders, including industry chambers, bankers and foreign and domestic investors.
The sectoral meetings with the representatives of various sectors, including banking, MSME and auto, over the last few days have highlighted some of the pain points, sources said.
“These friction points will soon be removed with a view to accelerate growth momentum,” an official said, adding these would address various common concerns of the industry. The industry has pressed for steps to ensure availability of credit, lower borrowing cost and simplification of some of the policies which could spur growth.
