A video has been doing rounds on social media showing how the middle class has benefited from the policies made by the Modi government. From the data given in the video, one sees that the Modi government policies have benefited the middle class contrary to what the perception is.
Let’s share our personal experiences of how we have financially benefitted in terms of low inflation, low interest, tax benefits etc.
Here is a video of how slowly tax benefits were passed on year on year.

I am a middle class person. The sensex rose from 17K to 37K i.e. more than doubled in 4.5Years, with an annual compounded growth Rate of approx 18%. No FD PPF will give u this..Huge earnings for me. Possible due to sound policies of government .

Some told how GST and reduced prices have been a relief for them.
GST of 5 % has been extremely useful at restaurants. Earlier, we used to pay 18%+. Big savings!
Arhar prices have come down drastically from its peak and have stayed down for the past 2 years. This directly helps the middle class. #MiddleClassWithModi

As it appears from the personal experiences shared by the people, the government has been able to impress the middle class with its policies.
