About Budget of Hope Aspirations are running high. Expectations of a billion people are riding on it. This is an opportunity for India to fight back. Never before has the Union Budget attracted so much attention. India has fought the pandemic and the world order has changed. The extent of the economic damage was evident through multiple challenges that India, as a rising economic superpower, was facing in the face of an abrupt lockdown. It is this hope that has kindled aspirations and the hope that the Budget this year will bring back our lives together. Hope that the Budget will drive the nation and transform the way we live. This is the #BudgetofHope, an ICICI Direct initiative.
