SanjoyZuriSanjoy Bhattacharyya, VP – Finance, Zuri Group Global shares his post Union Budget 2011 reactions with CXOtoday.com

This budget is an attempt from the Central Government towards fiscal consolidation. A fiscal deficit of 4.6 percent as projected by Finance Minister looks very attractive. However, we need to see how that can be achieved since we go through fine print. For the hospitality / hotel industry, there isn’t too much to cheer about. On the contrary, we have been levied with a service tax of 10 percent on accommodation which will make the guests stay now a dearer affair.
