Award winning CNN-News18 show 'Axe The tax' to present FM with people's wishlist ahead of Budget

CNN-News18, through its budget programming #BudgetAfterDeMo, will endeavour to look at expectations of different sections of society from Budget 2017, with special emphasis on decoding and analysing the impact of demonetisation. Post demonetisation, people, in general, are expecting major tax sops from Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. CNN-News18 provides a platform to viewers to voice their Budget expectations on various taxation policies through its award-winning show, ‘Axe The Tax’.

Having completed ten years, this special campaign of the channel will present six key suggestions to the Finance Minister this year, for changes to the country’s taxation rules. The suggestions would be based on the viewers’ feedback and consultations with top tax analysts. In the past, many of the suggestions made on this platform have found mention in the Union Budget, thus making it a truly impactful and effective initiative.

Catch ‘Axe The Tax’ this Saturday, January 28, at 7.30 pm and Sunday, January 29, at 1.30 pm, on CNN-News18.
