ITR hosted a live webinar, along with Dhruva Advisors and Taxsutra, on Monday, February 1 to analyse the implications of the tax proposals in India’s 2021 budget.


The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the biggest disruption of the global economy, with India - a top 5 global economy - among those drastically affected. The Indian government was faced with the challenges of balancing the health impact of COVID-19 along with the economic impact of national and regional lockdowns. 

As the world is hoping to bounce back in 2021, there is a huge opportunity for the Indian economy to catapult it into a high growth economy once again. At the same time, the fiscal deficit needs to be maintained at reasonable levels so that India’s debt levels do not become unmanageable.

Dhruva Advisors, Taxsutra and ITR hosted a webinar to discuss the impact on the Indian economy and businesses of various proposals announced in the Union Budget 2021-22. The discussions were led by Dinesh Kanabar, CEO of Dhruva Advisors. He was joined by Uday Shankar, President, FICCI - a stalwart of the media and entertainment industry - as well as other experts from Dhruva Advisors.

The webinar was broadcast live at 11.30am GMT/5pm IST on Monday, February 1 2021. Please check out the recording above.
