Finance Minister arrives at North block


Union budget 2023: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present the budget shortly. This is his fifth budget for the financial year 2023-2024.

Everyone is hoping and waiting for the upcoming budget.

The government is expected to announce some reforms and initiatives to support the economy amid the global economic downturn.

Various relief measures are expected from the budget (EU Budget 2023) including the salaried class, pensioners and common people. While the salaried class expects the budget to help reduce their tax liability and increase their take home pay.

On Tuesday, Sitharaman presented the Economic Survey for the financial year 2022-23 to the Lok Sabha, declaring that India’s economic recovery from the Covid pandemic is complete.

In light of the upcoming budget, top business leaders of the country have also made recommendations to Nirmala Sitharaman.
