Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday presented her last budget of Modi 2.0 government. Besides massive allocations to Indian railways and other infrastructural projects, the relaxation to salaried class by proposing a new tax regime, under which income tax rebate limit has been increased from current Rs 5 lakh to Rs 7 lakh, has been unanimously hailed on Twitter as hashtags related to budget remained rampant across social media platforms.

The big announcement meant to provide relief to salaried class has been lapped up by netizens and is being marked with rib tickling memes. Netizens claim it to be the most sought relief by government to salaried class since 2014.

Apart from relief to the job holders, government’s move to unleash 16 per cent hike in duty on cigarettes has created stir with smokers raising their meme-laced concerns.
