The Impact On Different Sectors:
In the context of different sectors, the budget may be as follows:
The Chaturthesh Sun is together with Ketu in Bhagya Sthan. Hence, if the government does not pay attention to the IT sector, it may affect India’s status as an IT hub. Perhaps the decisions taken in this direction may prove to be inadequate, compared to the current demand. Relief in software maintenance and service tax is expected as per Union Budget 2018 expectations.
The position of Venus and Mercury should be good for the auto sector. But on the upcoming budget day, these two planets will become weak as they are together with Ketu. Hence, the auto sector may get disappointed this year as chances of direct benefits are less. However, the hopes of this industry will remain alive as the infrastructure will be provided to them due to Lagnesh Venus.
The Sun is with Ketu in Shravana nakshatra, and Mars is well-posited. Besides, as the Sun-Venus, Sun-Ketu, Mercury–Ketu are in the ninth house, medicines that reduce poisonous chemicals in the body and medicines related to the stomach, heart, headache, eyes, bones, lungs, intestine, uterus, breast, kidney, skin, genital system, nervous system diseases, asthma, respiratory system, delirium, muscle weakness, anxiety, excessive-thinking, insomnia, worms, genital and urine problems may become cheaper or benefits, concessions & schemes for this sector may be provided.

Banking sector is considered as the backbone of the economy for any country. Hence, major benefits or reliefs are always expected for this sector in the budget. Since the past times, the government is especially keen to reduce the NPA of PSU banks and saving those banks which are facing liquidation problem due to large number of borrowers. Under such circumstances, several major and unexpected changes are likely in this budget. Steps may be taken to form mega banking corporations by integrating small and big government banks. Concessions will also be given to banks for collecting funds from abroad at a lower rate. On the budget day, major changes in Bank Nifty in the stock market is indicated.

Cement, Real Estate And Infrastructure
The government has always promised cheap housing and excellent infrastructure to the fellow citizens, and has also implemented numerous schemes and regulations to fulfil it. These two sectors will be in focus during this year’s budget. Since Mars will be swagruhi on the budget day, the National Highway Authority, Railway and Airport Authority will get more reliefs. New concessions or schemes for privatisation and modernisation of airports in metro cities and 2-tier cities are indicated. The government will focus more on improving connectivity with small towns for industrial development and employment in distant locations. Homes must become cheaper to fulfil dreams of people to own a house. The Government will take this into consideration and take promotional measures for the real estate.
Metal And Steel
In India’s horoscope, Bhagyesh and Karmesh Saturn will transit in the eight house. As Saturn will be in neutral position, major changes in this sector are not indicated. But, this sector will definitely gain due to implementation of new concessions or schemes provided for infrastructure and farming.
The government always considers entertainment sector as a luxury segment for any tax-related decisions.

Fertilisers, Pesticides And Agricultural Products
In India’s horoscope, transiting Rahu and Moon are passing over the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Moon. While transiting Ketu is passing through the Bhagya Sthan. Hence, some benefits for this sector are indicated this year. Also, companies dealing in seeds, chemical fertilisers, pesticides and drip irrigation may get some relief. However due to Rahu’s dominance in the horoscope, there may be some changes in the pesticides, which could be very good or vice versa. Thus, pesticides may become a topic of discussion or controversy.
After the NDA government came to power in the Lok Sabha, they also emerged as winners in the assembly elections. But, as the opposition parties have been on the back foot during the last few years, they are now trying various methods to defeat the government. Anyway, it is certain that India will also continue to move ahead after the budget is presented by the progressive NDA government, which has the sole objective of winning the public confidence through the path of development.
