Hailing the Union budget, North Delhi Mayor Yogender Chandolia on Thursday termed it as "inclusive" and said the decision to allocate Rs 700 crore to overcome problems of power transmission and water distribution system in Delhi will help in making the national capital a world-class city.
The General Budget 2014-15 is an "inclusive budget" with equal focus on all sectors, Chandolia said in a statement issued by the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC).
The NDA government today allocated Rs 700 crore to overcome the problems of power transmission and water distribution system in Delhi and the decision will help in making Delhi a world-class city in true sense, he said.
In the budget, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitely doled out income tax sops by raising threshold exemption and investment limits by Rs 50,000. Commending this, Chandolia claimed the step would bring down inflation level and provide relief to the common man.
