Manguirish Pai Raiker, Chairman of the National Council for MSME of Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), appealed to the central government to emphasize on Production Link Incentives (PIL) and spiritual tourism in the interim budget.

Speaking to ANI, Raiker said, “The government is taking a lot of initiatives to improve the business. We will be the third-largest economy very soon. PLI (Production Link Incentives) will be enhanced, more products will be brought in and there will be more scope for investments in India.”

“Secondly, the government is focusing on spiritual tourism which has attracted many tourists as we have seen in Varanasi and Ayodhya. Other spots will also be taken into consideration.  I am sure the new budget will focus on the promotion of spiritual tourism,” he added.

The Budget session of Parliament, the last session before the general elections expected in April-May, will begin on January 31 and is likely to continue till February 9.
