In a first since the presentation of India's first budget on November 26, 1947, the Union Budget 2021-22 has gone paperless and can also be downloaded from the official Government of India website once it is presented before the Parliament. All MPs will receive soft copies of the budget.
Union Budget 2021-22 , which is also Nirmala Sitharaman's third consecutive budget before the Parliament, is a challenging one as she has a mammoth task of managing to bring the economy back to pre-COVID levels and to tackle the curveballs thrown by the coronavirus crisis. With the economic growth at a 10-year low, widening fiscal deficit and inflation at its peak, the entire country and the world will watch this budget very closely.
