The Policy will focus on manufacturing, seek to promote innovation, will offer tax sops to small unlisted start-ups The government is working on a new start-up policy that will focus on manufacturing, seek to promote innovation, and also offer tax incentives to small unlisted start-ups. The aim, a government official familiar with the matter and speaking on condition of anonymity said, is to build an entire “ecosystem”, not merely offer incentives.

Finance ministry rules out adding GST rate in Bill The government and the main opposition, the Congress, on Wednesday were on the same page on the crucial goods and services tax (GST) Bill as far as talks were concerned. On the eve of the winter session of Parliament, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley assured the Congress it would hold consultations with opposition parties over the crucial GST Bill. The Congress told the government it had made its main concerns clear and wanted the government to respond to those, implying it was open to negotiations.

He would ideally wait to see the impact of a possible rate hike by the US Federal Reserve on December 15- 16, possibly the first by the world’s largest economy since June 2006.
