When will the Economic Survey be presented?

The Economic Survey 2020-21 will be tabled in the Parliament on Friday, January 29, 2021, by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, two days before the Union Budget gets presented. Generally, the Economic Survey is presented on the opening day of the Budget Session and provides a summary of annual economic development across the country during the financial year.

This year, the focus is going to be on the losses suffered by the Indian economy due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
