Hon’ble Speaker,

I present the Budget for 2023-24. This is the first Budget in Amrit

Kaal.

Introduction

1. This Budget hopes to build on the foundation laid in the previous

Budget, and the blueprint drawn for India@100. We envision a prosperous

and inclusive India, in which the fruits of development reach all regions and

citizens, especially our youth, women, farmers, OBCs, Scheduled Castes and

Scheduled Tribes.

2. In the 75th year of our Independence, the world has recognised the

Indian economy as a ‘bright star’. Our current year’s economic growth is

estimated to be at 7 per cent. It is notable that this is the highest among all

the major economies. This is in spite of the massive slowdown globally

caused by Covid-19 and a war. The Indian economy is therefore on the right

track, and despite a time of challenges, heading towards a bright future.

3. Today as Indians stands with their head held high, and the world

appreciates India’s achievements and successes, we are sure that elders

who had fought for India’s independence, will with joy, bless us our

endeavors going forward.
