    Speaking at an industry event here, Sitharaman said the corporate tax reduction for the rest of corporates would be gradual. However, she did not give any time frame for the reduction.

    Echoing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Independence Day speech, she said Indian wealth creator and entrepreneurs will be given all kinds of support.

    PM Modi in his Independence Day speech had said that wealth creators in the country should be given due respect. “Only when wealth is created, wealth will be distributed.” he had said.
