In India, two budgets are presented in every Lok Sabha elections calendar year. An Interim Budget is presented in February ahead of Lok Sabha elections and subsequently, a full general budget is presented after the formation of the government during the Budget session in Parliament.

This will be the 89th budget, including the interim one. Today FM  Nirmala Sitharaman presented the Economic Survey in the Parliament.  The Survey has pegged the growth rate of 7 per cent for FY20. While the fiscal deficit for 2018-19 has been retained at 3.4 per cent of the GDP, similar to interim Budget. Besides, the CEA Krishnamurthy Subramanian said sustained 8 per cent growth is needed to become a $ 5-trillion economy by 2024-25.
