Our Bureau

KOLKATA, Jan. 30

THE Government will keep in view the needs of the social and infrastructure sectors in the forthcoming Union Budget, Mr G.N. Ramachandran, Minister of State for Finance, has observed. He was addressing members of Bharat Chamber of Commerce here.

Spending on these key areas was a matter of high priority for the country's policy-makers. The idea was to reduce inequality and create a more conducive situation for all sections of society. At the same time, the Government would be required to respond to the needs of traditional sectors such as agriculture.
