Union Budget 2021

The Union Budget for the fiscal year 2021-22 was presented by the finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman today.

For the first time since independence, the union budget presented by the Finance Ministry was not printed. This was due to the COVID-19 restrictions as the printing of the budget involves around 100 employees of the Finance Ministry to stay together for a fortnight until the budget is printed, sealed and delivered to the parliament.
