PM hopes that Budget session will be used for fruitful discussion and debate to ensure the overall welfare of the nation.
Prime Minister called for a comprehensive and productive discussion on the budget. PM Modi also pointed out the beginning of a new era with the Budget being presented on 1st of February and the joint presentation of the Rail budget and the General budget.
I&B minister Venkaiah Naidu said that there is no reason to question the early presentation of the Budget in light of state elections as the budget will not be state specific.
Further, the new system has been debated thoroughly before the decision was taken to pull up budget presentation by a month.
