The government is not against the concept of subsidy he added Jaitley.

The Finance Minister also stated that he doesn't  agree that rupee is in a free-fall mode, however he mentioned that the rupee has weakened least compared to most other currencies.

He also assured that the two or three legacy tax issues left would be sorted out expeditiously.

He also said that there must not be unfair taxation, such assessment would brings only bad name, not revenue.
