 Budget 2020: Taxpayers Expect Section 80C Rebate To Be Extended

What common man expects in respect of Section 80C from Budget 2020

As per experts, being the current cap of Rs. 1.5 lakh being very small, investors are not provided considerable scope to diversify their investment portfolio and consider other beneficial investment offers.
