Dismissing allegations of today's interim Budget announcements being populist, Union Minister Piyush Goyal said that the government was truly working for the empowerment for farmers, which "Naamdars" (hinting at Congress) may not understand. With the Lok Sabha election just months away, the government kept the budget focussed on immediate relief such as easing income tax rules, favourable loan terms for small businesses, farm loan waiver and even direct cash transfers to small farmers. The government said it will send Rs 6,000 to small farmers directly into their bank accounts in a scheme that will be funded 100 per cent by the centre. The programme will cost Rs 75,000 crore.
