Even for "minimum" budget, it'll get close to 25-30k for a sufficient config.

This seems good for the money, already has 8GB RAM & SSD, can use ext HDD for extra storage without much effort. It has MS Office Home & Student as well:
Dell Inspiron 3505 Ryzen 3 Dual Core 3250U - (8 GB/256 GB SSD/Windows 10 Home) Inspiron 3505 Laptop Rs.37517 Price in India - Buy Dell Inspiron 3505 Ryzen 3 Dual Core 3250U - (8 GB/256 GB SSD/Windows 10 Home) Inspiron 3505 Laptop Black Online - Dell : Flipkart.com

It might have a free 2.5" SATA slot.
Don't you think laptops are getting too overpriced for now? Anything above 25k for dual core is too much IMO.

Since lockdown last year, laptop demand grew & hence the price, esp for ones under 50k. R3 3200U laptops with SSD were 30k earlier & you could find R5 3500U + SSD + 8GB RAM for 37-38k comfortably, not anymore though. Sadly nothing much that can be done by us.
 
Yes, I agree with you since lockdown laptop demand is growing day by day. the reason behind that is many of the tech companies offer work from the home model to their employees.
WFH is one factor, another major factor is Education. Even if parents have a laptop, they would have to buy another for their kid's classes. My cousin didn't need a laptop for her college before lockdown, now she has one. I know many students are just using phones, still, those who can afford are getting a laptop as that's better.

How about these 2

Both are good for their price.

R3 4300U is 4c/4t vs 5300U's 4c/8t. R3 5300U should perform better than the old R5 3500U which was a 4c/8t CPU based on older architecture (Zen+).

Oh that is very cool then coz saw 3500u based units over 46k. And the 5300u option is lightweight, has alexa built in, and offers a 512gb ssd. I hope 14 inch screen is not to small for classes.

Alexa is likely just the app from MS store which you can install in any device. That laptop surely looks good for 42k.

you need to reach out to Acer's service center to upgrade your hardware in warranty period. Find out which brand's service center is nearby to you or easily accessible.
If Acer laptop already has 8GB RAM and SSD and if its cheaper then consider getting it. Otherwise get Lenovo.

Add 2nd RAM later. R3 5300U is 4c/8t & should outperform R5 3500U & i5 10th gen due to newer architecture. That's 14" though.

15" option but with a bit weaker 4c/4t CPU. Still good. Display is apparently TN & not IPS & KB seems to lack backlit.
