Union Finance Minister will be presenting the Union Budget 2023-24 in Parliament. This budget will be the last full-fledged Union Budget of PM Narendra Modi's government before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Like the previous two years, the Union Budget will be delivered in paperless form this year also.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair a cabinet meeting at 10 am before the Budget is tabled in Parliament.
Meanwhile, addressing reporters outside Parliament before the start of the budget session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "Our Finance Minister will present one more Budget before the country tomorrow. In today's global circumstances, not only India but the entire world is looking at India's budget. Amid the unstable global economic situation, India's Budget will attempt to meet the hopes and aspirations of the common citizens. I firmly believe that Nirmala Sitharaman will make all efforts to meet those aspirations."
