India budget comes as economy slows

Indian business wants a budget for growth, but the government could be tempted to go for populist spending measures.

The Indian economy is going through relatively tougher times, with growth at its slowest for a decade.

With the budget about to be announced, business will be looking for measures to boost growth, especially the simplification of regulations and taxes.

The government is also under pressure to cut its fiscal deficit.

But with elections just around the corner, there could be a temptation for the government to announce a populist budget.
