As part of NALSAR Lecture Series on Constitutionalism, Mr. P. Chidambaram delivered a talk on ‘Union Budget 2018-19’ in NALSAR University of Law. He started his talk with the relevance of budget to everyone in the country including Law students. “The budget is an important document and the budget speech is an important speech. Perhaps not many law students think that budget is a great concern to them. Actually it is. There is no activity which is unaffected by the budget. For example, Budget affects your Education Loans (with floating interest rates) and your Recruitment process. You should disabuse yourself if you think that budget won’t affect you.”   He then discussed the context of Union Budget 2018-19. “Every budget has a context that is objective and it must have a purpose that is subjective. What is the context of Union Budget 2018-19? While the world growth rate is steadily increasing, India’s growth rate is steadily decreasing. When the world growth rate is increasing, we expect India’s growth rate also to be increasing proportionately. India is growing but not as fast as it can. The second context to the budget is the price of crude oil. For many months, it remained below 40 dollars.…
