Budget 2014 was announced yesterday, with its fair share of ups and downs. While serial smokers were upset about the price rise in cigarettes, techies rejoiced as the price of computer monitors went down. However, through all of this, the person who was most complacent was Alia Bhatt.
When asked to explain the Budget to the common man, here were some points Alia had:
Reduction of prices of LCDs and LEDs is inversely proportional to no. of OMGs
Excise duty on cigarettes is increased because it’s everyone’s duty to exercise – even smokers
5 more IITs means 5 more colleges I won’t be getting into this year
Diamonds are getting cheaper this year. Guess girls are going to have lots of new best friends soon.
No retrospective tax being brought in, which means I can pretend I didn’t earn any money for being in Student of the Year
Resident taxpayers can obtain advance ruling on income tax liability. One sec, let me get my dictionary before I explain that to you
Rs 2,47,941 crore is being invested in PSUs. That’s almost the amount I spend on handbags each year.
