Budget 2023 Expectations

According to
Devyani Jaipuria (Chairperson Dharav High School, Pro- Vice Chairperson- DPS International Gurugram, DPS 45 & DPS Jaipur), "Contributing a lion’s share in the economy, the education sector has been given the focus and attention in the Union Budgets every year that it needs. The recently launched National Education Policy was very encouraging. Increasing the GDP spend from 1.7% to 6% will help in opening more opportunities and bring education for everyone regime closer to success. We have similar expectations from the upcoming budget. After all the several progressive reforms in NEP, we are hoping the Union Budget will announce developmental plans for areas like digitization, internationalization of higher education, investment in skill development, and emphasis on regional languages in technical and medical education, among others. Also, with technology taking the center stage, new fields of employment such as Animation, Visual Effects, Gaming, and Comic (AVGC) are booming and require support to flourish. Thus, we are expecting the upcoming Budget to be exemplary and give the education sector a breather from the ongoing fund crunch."

The Finance Minister is expected to adopt tax-related relief measures and/or changes to the income tax slabs, which income taxpayers, especially those in the salaried class, have high hopes for. During the presentation of the Union Budget 2023, the common man will be eagerly awaiting FM Sitharaman's announcement regarding changes to the income tax slabs because these changes will have a significant impact on their finances. Additional presumptions about the Union Budget 2023 include:

Restructuring Of The Income Tax Slabs  

In this pandemic era, people's earnings are depreciating every year due to inflation and rising living expenses. Many people hope and anticipate that the government will take these factors into account when reorganizing the tax slabs in order to lessen the tax burden on the general public.

 Increase In The Limit Of Standard Deduction  Back in 20

For salaried workers, a standard deduction was first introduced in 2018 that provided an exemption of $40,000; this exemption was later raised to $50,000 in the interim budget for 2019. Given the rising costs and the global inflation that is out of control, the common employees also anticipate that this limit will be increased.

Increase In Exemption Limit Under Section 80C 

The general public can currently make a variety of investments that are eligible under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act and receive a deduction of up to 1.5 lakhs. Many members of the general public anticipate that this limit will be increased to $2 lakhs during this year's Union Budget.

Who delivered the shortest Budget speech in India?

The annual budget of the Republic of India is known as the Union Budget of India, also known as the Annual Financial Statement under Article 112 of the Indian Constitution. In order for it to be implemented before the start of the new fiscal year in April, the government presents it on the first day of February. The nodal organization in charge of creating the budget is the department of economic affairs (DEA) in the finance ministry.


Who announced the first Budget?

After Independence, India's first Finance Minister, Shri Shanmukham Chetty, presented the first budget of independent India on 26th November 1947.

What are the 3 types of Budgets?
