AGARTALA, Sep 20 (TIWN): Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb has welcomed the decision of 22% slash in the corporate tax by the Modi Govt.

In his social media, CM posted, “I congratulate PM Narendra Modi & FM Nirmala Sitharaman for the tax cut for domestic and new manufacturing companies. Corporate tax rates slashed to 22% for domestic companies and 15% for new domestic manufacturing companies, which will lower overall burden on business”.

In a major bonanza for corporates as part of measures to promote growth and investment, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday announced to slash corporate tax rate to 22 per cent for domestic companies and 15 per cent for new domestic manufacturing companies, besides other fiscal reliefs.

Sitharaman said the revenue foregone on reduction in corporate tax and other relief measures will be Rs 1.45 lakh crore annually.  The move puts India’s tax rate on par with Asian peers and will boost efforts to attract investments as companies look for alternative destinations to sidestep supply chain disruptions from the U.S.-China trade war.  RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das welcomed the government announcement, calling it a “bold move.'’ Domestic investor wealth soared by Rs 2.11 lakh crore in morning trade on Friday.
