Budget 2024: Social media is filled with memes after Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the Interim Budget 2024 on February 1. This is the Narendra Modi-led government's last Budget before the Lok Sabha elections which will be held this year.

Users on social media have reacted with hilarious memes as the finance minister kept the income tax slab rates unchanged for both new and old income tax regimes. Hashtags such as "Budget2024", "Incometax", and “Lakshadweep" have been trending on Twitter, with many lamenting for the ‘middle class’ while other users taking a dig at the Maldives.
