The Union Budget 2019 is without a doubt one of the most anticipated financial events of the year. It is expected to bring some impactful tax reforms.
Each year, we wait with bated breath for the Finance Minister’s budget speech, hoping for some favorable changes in the form of tax rate cuts and exemptions.
However, we often miss that the budget goes beyond announcement of policy changes and tax reforms. It holds the key to something a lot closer to home - our individual financial planning.
The Union Budget is a detailed report of the government’s finances including a detailed estimate of the receipts and expenditures of the government for a particular year. Every government has certain developmental goals that it seeks to achieve through its budget allocations each year. Similarly, our individual financial goals can be met through sound financial planning.
As we begin the countdown to the budget, let’s look at what we can learn from the upcoming Union Budget to apply to our own financial planning.

The Union Budget lays down in detail the past, current as well as the estimates of the receipts and expenditures of the government for the upcoming year. It is therefore also referred to as the ‘Annual Financial Statement’.

Lessons we can learn in decoding the budget:
The manner in which the Union Budget is framed and laid out by our policy makers holds important tools to determine our own individual financial roadmap.
If we take cue from the scheme of budget allocations, we can arrive at certain rules to apply to our own financial planning:
So, while the government works on its financial roadmap for the country for the upcoming financial year, let’s take a look at our own individual finances and seek to align them to our individual financial goals.
