Union Budget 2018 kicks in today: Here's what is costlier, cheaper

Union Budget 2018, presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on February 1, will take effect from today. While this year's budget was unique as it did not deal with taxes, as it used to, due to the introduction of Goods and Services Taxes, prices of several day-to-day items will still be affected due to variations in Import duty.

What it means is the budget 2018 will only affect the prices of imported items.
