This is the BJP-led government’s last Budget ahead of the General Elections.

The Budget session of Parliament, convened for conducting urgent financial business, began on Thursday with the Presidential address. The Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha will have 10 sitting each before the session concludes on February 13. The two Houses will take up for discussion the Motion of Thanks for the President’s address and the interim budget. Of the 10 sittings, only five will have Question Hour — February 4 to 8. On February 8 alone, private members’ bills will be taken up for discussion.
The Prime Minister was forced to clarify Thursday that the government would present an interim Budget after the Opposition vowed to oppose any attempt at presenting a full-fledged Budget when the government’s tenure was scheduled to end in May.
