When most of us were busy working in office or travelling to work, the interim Finance Minister Piyush Goyal was deciding most of our finanicial fates, in the Union Budget 2019 that was presented today.
While people were waiting with bated breath to see what’s going to happen, there was something that none of us saw coming announcement of tax breaks. People’s happiness knew no bounds after Piyush Goyal announced full tax rebate for those whose annual income is up to Rs 5 lakh.
Further, people earning up to Rs 6.5 lakh may also be relieved from the tax burden if they can show investments of Rs 1.5 lakh. Looks like Mr. Goyal’s briefcase was actually a Pandora’s Box that unlocked the ultimate happiness for the middle class public.
After the budget was announced, people started having ‘Lagaan’ feels. Just like Aamir Khan and co. breathed a sigh of relief after they won the match and did not have to pay “Dugna Lagaan”, people on Twitter too lost their calm after the tax rebate was announced.
