This is the first visit by the finance minister since the onset of the pandemic and comes at a time when a greater focus is on the government for aiding recovery because high inflation constrains the RBI, as per a report by PTI.

This will be followed with an event organised by Indian Banks Association (IBA) to launch "Enhanced Access and Service Excellence" (EASE) 4.0 at the same venue at 12 pm.
The minister is also scheduled to address a press conference with select journalists on Wednesday afternoon, officials said, as per a PTI report.
