Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to Present Interim Budget Today Ahead of 2024 Elections

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is poised to present the Interim Budget today, marking the final budget in Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s second term ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2024. This interim budget serves as a short-term financial plan until the formation of a new government post-election.

An Interim Budget outlines expenditures and revenues until the establishment of a new government, enabling the administration to manage its financial obligations during the transitional period. Despite its interim nature, this budget carries significant weight in guiding economic policies and priorities.

President Droupadi Murmu recently emphasized India’s position as the fastest-growing major economy, citing a growth rate of about 7.5% for two consecutive quarters in 2023 despite global challenges. This underscores the importance of fiscal policies in sustaining economic momentum.

During an election year, the incumbent government presents an Interim Budget instead of a full-fledged one. This interim budget covers expenses and revenues for a brief period until the formation of a new government.

What to Expect:

The Interim Budget typically includes estimates for government expenditure, revenue, fiscal deficit, and financial performance for a short duration, providing a snapshot of the country’s economic landscape.

Release of Full Budget:

Following the Lok Sabha elections, the new government presents a comprehensive Union Budget for the entire financial year, incorporating long-term economic strategies and policy directions.

As anticipation builds for the Interim Budget, updates from various sources offer insights into market sentiments, expectations from different sectors, and past budget highlights. The budget presentation is closely watched by stakeholders, economists, and the public alike for its implications on economic growth and welfare initiatives.

Stay tuned for live updates on the Interim Budget as Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman unveils the government’s financial roadmap for the interim period.
