Budget 2018 has proposed to levy long-term capital gains tax (LTCG) of 10% on gains exceeding Rs 100,000 from sale of equity shares. However, capital gains made on shares until January 31, 2018, would be grandfathered, the finance minister said. Also, there has been no change in the definition of short-term capital gains tax (STCG). 

Signalling, that fiscal prudence has gone off track, Jaitley proposed a fiscal deficit target of 3.3% of GDP for 2018-19. The target he had set for 2018-19 last year was 3%.   

This year's budget focussed more on rural and agri economy. My government is committed to the welfare of the fares. Agriculture is an enterprise and encouraging farmers to earn more," he added.
