Sir, since the budget is only discussed in rajya sabha ,therefore are the appropriation bill & finance bill passed by lok sabha only ??? kindly reply

Both Finance bill as well as Appropriation bill are Money Bill. Hence once the Bill is passed by Loksabha, Rajya Sabha has to pass it on 14 days. If Rajya Sabha passes the Bill with any amendment then it's upto Loksabha to accept the amendment or not. In short both the bills are passed by both the Houses.

thankyou sir ! doubt clarified... As per the above link, is the financial bill a sub category of money bill?
According to the provisions of constitution, the president shall lay the budget of that financial year before both the houses, then what does financial minister and railways ministers present in Lok Sabha and in rajya sabha after the budget speech of FM ?

It is not president 'shall lay'. Art 112 (1) says "The President shall in respect of every financial year CAUSE TO BE LAID before both the HOP a statement....." So the Finance Minister on behalf of President lays the Budget.
