The Union Budget of 2022-23 was presented by Finance Minister Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman on February 1, 2022. Infrastructure emerged as the topmost priority for the Narendra Modi government as the finance minister said that the Budget for 2022-2023 will lay the foundation for economic growth through public investment as Asia's third-largest economy emerges from a pandemic-induced slump.
The Finance Minister outlined the effects of the pandemic, saying the speed of vaccination had greatly helped in combating the pandemic. “We are in the midst of the Omicron wave, the speed of our vaccination campaign has helped greatly. I am confident that with ‘Sabka Prayaas’ (everyone’s efforts) we'll continue with strong growth."
