Paperless Budget in India

The Budget 2024 is presented by FM Nirmala Sitharaman, who arrived for the presentation carrying a tablet instead of the traditional ‘bahi-khata‘ for the fourth time.

बजट 2024 वित्त मंत्री निर्मला सीतारमण द्वारा प्रस्तुत किया गया, जो चौथी बार पारंपरिक 'बही-खाता' के बजाय एक टैबलेट लेकर प्रस्तुति के लिए पहुंचीं।

Last year, it was the third time since the presentation of independent India’s first Budget on November 26, 1947, that the documents containing the income and expenditure statement of the Union government along with the finance bill were not physically printed.

पिछले साल, 26 नवंबर, 1947 को स्वतंत्र भारत के पहले बजट की प्रस्तुति के बाद तीसरी बार, वित्त विधेयक के साथ केंद्र सरकार के आय और व्यय विवरण वाले दस्तावेजों को भौतिक रूप से मुद्रित नहीं किया गया था।

This year also, the Finance Minister launched the Budget mobile app for ‘hassle-free’ access of budget documents by members of Parliament (MPs) and the general public.

इस साल भी, वित्त मंत्री ने संसद सदस्यों (सांसदों) और आम जनता द्वारा बजट दस्तावेजों की 'परेशानी-मुक्त' पहुंच के लिए बजट मोबाइल ऐप लॉन्च किया।

Did you know? The first budget of India was submitted on 18th February, 1860 by James Wilson. P C Mahalanobis is known as the father of Indian budget.

क्या आपको पता था? भारत का पहला बजट 18 फरवरी, 1860 को जेम्स विल्सन द्वारा प्रस्तुत किया गया था। पीसी महालनोबिस को भारतीय बजट का जनक कहा जाता है।

Budget Session of Parliament

The Budget Session of the parliament will commence from January 31, 2024 with President Droupadi Murmu’s address. The first part of the Union budget session of Parliament will be held from January 31 to February 9.

संसद का बजट सत्र 31 जनवरी, 2022 से राष्ट्रपति रामनाथ कोविंद के अभिभाषण के साथ शुरू होगा। संसद के केंद्रीय बजट सत्र का पहला भाग 31 जनवरी से 11 फरवरी तक चलेगा।

Budget Date and Timings

Union Budget 2024 is likely to be presented at 11 am on 1st February (Thursday), through Tablet (Paperless). The duration of the Budget presentation might range from 90 to 120 minutes.

Do you remember in the year 2020, Sitharaman gave the longest budget speech in Indian history which lasted for about 160 minutes.

क्या आपको याद है साल 2020 में सीतारमण ने भारतीय इतिहास का सबसे लंबा बजट भाषण दिया था जो करीब 160 मिनट तक चला था।
