The Union Budget (UB) 2022-23 has been presented at a time when the Indian economy has not fully resurrected itself from the slowdown caused by COVID-19 pandemic. The domestic consumption demand has remained subdued because of disruption in labour market while economic inequality has increased over the past two years. Hence, the union budget was expected to stimulate economic growth mainly by way of creation of employment opportunities and consumption demand in the economy.
