The Gujarat Finance Minister, Mr Vajubhai Vala, on Friday tabled the 2007-08 Budget proposals in the Vidhan Sabha here, levying no fresh taxes in the election year and giving tax rebates totalling Rs 400 crore to woo mainly the villagers, small traders and the self-employed, leaving an overall deficit of Rs 70.42 crore at the end of the fiscal.

For 2007-08, the Annual Plan for Rs 15,506 crore has a provision of Rs 6,265 crore for social services, thus, earmarking 40 per cent of total allocation for drinking water, primary education, housing, healthcare and nutrition.
