Expectation from Union Budget 2010 for SME Sector

Most of the handicrafts, including wooden handicrafts, wrought iron crafts and other enterprises involved in textile and garment etc. fall within the Small and medium Enterprises (SME) sector. Discouraged by the economic downturn of last year and with no new jobs available in the market, the small entrepreneurs expect a lot from the the Finance Minister. Their expectations from Union Budget 2010-11 is high regarding inclusion of such provisions that could encourage people in SME sector.
  • SMEs expects the Budget 2010 to focus more on Infrastructure growth.
  • Industry is also hopeful of seeking tax incentives so as to spur demand. It wish list for budget also includes some measures that could shield it from global swings in commodity prices.
  • NREGA would have to be more effective so that Indian economy can further move a little away from the concept that agriculture is the end of rural markets.
  • For making Indian infrastructure investment attractive, high cost of debt to infrastructure should be addressed in some form.
  • Along with focus on power and on roads, adequate focus should also be placed on transmission of power and water management. Some kind of short term subsidies should also be introduced.
  • The concept of Special Economic Zones (SEZ) should also be strengthened for handicrafts and other SMEs.
  • Associations related even to SME and handicrafts are till now subjected to income tax which is a negative factor for their development. This tax on associations should be withdrawn.
  • Union Budget 2010 should remove indirect tax anomalies and give access to an incentive for capital expenditure via additional depreciation for making the Industry globally competitive.
  • Job creation should be supported fiscally along with all skills development programmes (like in wooden handicrafts, furniture manufacturing etc.) that can guarantee employment.
  • Tax structure should be simplified and surcharges and cesses should be abolished.
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) sector is crucial to employment generation, decentralized development and low cost products and services. The Budget must give proper incentives to the SME sector for its optimum growth.

Wrought Iron Balusters v/s Wooden Balusters- A Comparison!

Whether its home decorating or home renovation- the first thing that comes to mind is stairways renovation. Stairways have to be secure else there is always a risk of accident. However, one cannot deny the fact that these stairways also make our home beautiful. So, what are the solutions- what type of balusters will fulfill both the needs? When thinking about balusters, two types of balusters come to mind- Wrought iron balusters and wooden balusters. I am sure, most of the people reading this must be having wooden balusters at their homes. And if you are thinking of home renovation, then there is no better idea than a wrought iron baluster. Here we will compare wrought iron balusters with wooden balusters and will also come to know what advantages does wrought iron has over the wooden balusters!

Durability- Iron, as also wrought iron, is definitely durable than wood. Wooden balusters get decayed over time. They are also susceptible to vermin and termites. Wrought iron balusters do not have all these problems. Once installed, they will be there for lifelong. Now comes the question of getting bored of seeing these balusters year after year. That also has a solution. Get them painted in your choice of color after a certain period of time. There is nothing against wooden balusters if one can afford to change balusters over short period of times. If not, its better to get wrought iron balusters installed at your stairways.

Ductility- Wrought iron is malleable and can be molded and given any shape. Thus, wrought iron balusters are more decorative than wooden balusters. Wood, as is known, can not be molded to give curvy or decorative shapes. Wrought iron, being ductile can be twisted into intricate and complicated designs. As a result, you have many options with wrought iron balusters and can let your imagination loose when decorating your home.

Easy Availability-
Due to the changed interests of home dwellers and decorators, craftsmen are more inclined towards making balusters out of wrought iron. They are hesitant in experimenting with wooden baluster designs. As a result, iron balusters are available in showrooms and even smaller shops in most of the cities and towns. They are available on Internet too and can be purchased online sitting right at your home.

As far as cost is concerned, it all depends upon the place where you stay and how much wrought iron is dealt with there. Depending upon the quality of wrought iron and on the craftsmanship (the more detailed and intricate the designs, more will be cost), it can be both- cheaper or costlier than wooden balusters. You are now the sole authority to decide whether you need wrought iron balusters in place of your old wooden balusters or not? And if you decide for having wrought iron balusters then its the most suitable time to read How to Install Wrought Iron Balusters?
