    Abstract:
    Like in most parts of the world, life was on a stand-still in India for the past almost one year, courtesy of the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, the poor and the middle class are in a miserable state. Crores have lost their jobs and lakhs have faced savage reductions in their income. Amid this crisis, the Government of India presented its annual budget in Parliament on 1 February 2021.
