The app, available in bilingual mode (English & Hindi), promises a seamless experience for Members of Parliament (MPs) and the general public. Designed for hassle-free access to essential documents such as the Annual Financial Statement, Demand for Grants, and the Finance Bill, it represents a leap towards simplicity and accessibility in the budgetary process. Don’t miss the chance to witness a historic shift away from traditional methods!

As a departure from the customary ‘bahi khata,’ Finance Minister Sitharaman, after her debut Budget in 2019, advocated for the use of tablets, emphasizing the need to discard colonial practices and embrace modernity for ease of use. The final stage of preparation for the Interim Union Budget 2024 was marked by the traditional “Halwa ceremony” at North Block, symbolizing the lock-in of the budget preparation process.
