Discussed issues on infra, ₹&$, New Edu.Policy, entry into politics, Privatisation & Employment. Good wishes to all," she posted on her official account on X.

Finance Minister informed the students that during the G20 presidency, international leaders had praised India's stack and that the country's digital payments via UPI have been setting records month after month. She also discussed the advantages and drawbacks of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI).

The Finance Minister also gave the students the assurance that the government was dedicated to giving young people a variety of skill sets so that they could not only help them find plenty of work opportunities but also create job opportunities for others.

Additionally, she emphasised to the students the benefits of MUDRA and low-cost, collateral-free credit programmes and how they are assisting individuals in starting their own businesses.

With great enthusiasm, the students from Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Tamil Nadu questioned her about the future of the Indian economy, youth opportunities in emerging sectors, the impact of the digital economy on India, India's hosting of the G20, and other topics being discussed in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections, like inheritance and wealth tax.
