Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present the country’s budget in Parliament at 11 am today. Before presenting the budget, she reached Rashtrapati Bhavan to seek the approval of President Ramnath Kovind. The Finance Minister is also accompanied by Union Minister of State for Finance Anurath Thakur. This time the budget will be presented from the tab instead of the traditional bookkeeping (Bahi Khata). This time the budget is paperless. Finance Minister Sitharaman will read the budget speech for the Made in India tab. Every time the Finance Minister had a suitcase made of red leather in the budget. In that, all the important documents of the budget are there. However, Nirmala Sitharaman changed the tradition in 2019. She reached Parliament House with a red bag. He told the Chief Economic Advisor that the red cloth bag is an Indian tradition, rather the suitcase is a sign of British slavery.
