Budget 2022

Budget 2022: Increase allocation to education; bridge digital divide

Brijesh Kohli, Director, Xebia Academy-IT consultancy

It is essential for the government to make ed-tech tools available across the country. Subsidies, or private partnerships, can be a solution to this problem and should be highlighted in Budget, 2022. To reduce the cost of education for learners, the Budget should consider bringing down tax rates. This will encourage enrolments and discourage dropouts from institutions. Ed-tech enterprises, which are the future of education, continue to pay GST at 18 percent unlike conventional schools that have been excluded from GST. The government should provide aid and develop partnerships to ed-tech.
