Despite protests from the opposition and the unfortunate demise of the veteran parliamentarian E Ahamed, the budget was announced as per its scheduled time. Finance minister, Arun Jaitley who presented the union budget 2017-18, emphasized that a shift to digital economy has huge benefits for the common man.
Total expenditure of this year’s budget is 21 lakh 47 thousand crore rupees. Rs 2.44 was trending as ‘The Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana’ lending target has been doubled at Rs 2.44 lakh crore for 2017.
The Union budget of 2017 was being minutely observed by people from all over the country. As it comes soon after government’s move of demonetisation, the impact of note ban on the budget was much awaited by the people.
As the budget slowly unfolded, Twitteratis had a lot to say about it and they certainly had a blast as Arun Jaitley stood up in the Parliament to deliver his speech.
