The Economic Survey is presented a day before Union Budget, every year. It is an annual document by the Finance Ministry and Government of India which reviews the economy of the country over the past year and current financial year.
What does it contain?
It consists of detailed data on macro economy as well as the different sectors. The Economic Survey serves as a guideline for the Union Budget since it also contains policy ideas, key statistics on economic parameters and in-depth research on macro and sectoral trends.
The government is not bound to follow these recommendations and it only serves as a policy guide. On several occasions, policy changes recommended in the Economic Survey have not been seen in Budget proposals.
