Budget Expectations  Ashish Kashyap CEO ibiboAshish Kashyap, CEO, ibibo, shares his expectations from the Union Budget 2011 with with CXOtoday.com.

“The digital industry is an exemplary sector of emerging technologies cultivating the growth path in the country’s economy as well. With the upcoming Union Budget, we have two recommendations that will give a boost to the digital economy. Firstly, tax sops on e-commerce transactions will help in simplifying investments and increasing the penetration of such transactions among users thus put India at the center of the evolving Internet and e-commerce revolution. We believe that the growth of e-commerce is clearly linked with GDP growth of a country as the sector created tens of thousands of jobs every year. Our second suggestion is, to include service tax exemption on online advertising especially for small and medium enterprises, which will positively impact the growth of the sector and put it on a high growth trajectory.”
