The budget is out and so are the memes.

In the age of social media, nothing escapes scrutiny, and Budget 2023 was no exception. Nirmala Sitharaman's fifth Budget presentation made some key announcements on agritech, artificial intelligence, upskilling, and tax relaxation for startups.

While gold, silver, and diamond became more expensive, even kitchen chimneys saw a rise in their rates. 

Doing what they do best, Indian Twitterati had a field day with a slew of reactions to the “Amrith Kaal Budget”!

India’s middle class found some respite this year as the FM announced no tax to be levied on annual income of up to Rs 7 lakh under the new tax regime. 

But wait till you read the fine print. 

Cigarettes became more expensive. And, the tension is palpable!

And here’s an ode to the best friends of the government: Business leaders and startups.

Here are some bonus tweets, just for laughs!
