Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to Present Interim Budget Shortly

Budget 2024 LIVE: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will be presenting the pre-election Budget which will list out achievements of the Modi government in the past 10 years while giving a glimpse of the future plans to make India a developed nation by 2047.

Sitharaman, who would be presenting her sixth straight budget, had in her first Budget in 2019 replaced the leather briefcase — which had been in use for decades for carrying budget documents — with a traditional ‘bahi-khata’ wrapped in red cloth. This year’s Budget would be in paperless form, as done in the last three years.

By reading out the Budget for FY 2024-25, Sitharaman will surpass the record of her predecessors such as Arun Jaitley, Manmohan Singh, P Chidambaram, and Yashwant Sinha, all of whom presented five Budgets in Parliament.
