Budget 2021: Today, the country’s Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present the Union Budget 2021. However, during the Economic Survey of the Government, the Government had shown some glimpses of the budget. However, this budget will not be less than any litmus test of Nirmala Sitharaman. This budget is also special because Covid has come during the period. In such a situation, in every sector of the country, every person has high expectations. This time, this is happening for the first time after independence in the budget, when the budget has not been printed. All will be given a soft copy to the MPs.

The Finance Minister will begin his budget speech in the Lok Sabha at 11 am. The budget can be seen live on Lok Sabha TV. Apart from this, the budget speech can also be seen on PIB’s official website pib.gov.in and https://www.indiabudget.gov.in. Apart from this, you can also listen to the budget speech on social media platforms of other government channels including PIB, Lok Sabha channel, and DD News. The entire budget document can be downloaded from the official website of the Government of India, www.indiabudget.gov.in, after the eighth budget of the PM Modi-led government is presented in Parliament.
This budget will be recorded in history
This time this budget is going to be recorded in history. The reason for this is that this will be the first time since the first budget of independent India was presented on November 26, 1947, that the documents have not been physically printed. All MPs will get a soft copy of the budget. The Modi-led government ended the colonial-era tradition of presenting the budget in late February. Then the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley first presented the annual report on 1 February 2017.
Sitharaman may have a special focus on these sectors
This time the budget is special because Corona is coming in the middle of time. This time in the budget, the government can pay more attention to how more cash is in the hands of common people. There can be big announcements regarding the health sector. Currently, there is a very strong relationship with China. In such a situation, big announcements are also expected in defense. Looking at the economic survey, it is felt that big announcements are possible in the agriculture sector as well.
