Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her Budget 2021 sprang a surprise by presenting a Keynesian route to extricate the economy which is already battered by the effects of the Coronavirus. The Budget—which was the first ever paperless one—was unanimously seen as a landmark one, and she ensured that healthcare and infrastructure remained at the core of it.

Fortune India's photo team was on ground chronicling the entire event as the finance minister made her way to Parliament carrying a made-in-India tablet which housed the Budget documents.
