Modi government is targeting 3 projects in the Budget..!?
With the Union Budget to be presented on february 1, all eyes are on Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman. The upcoming budget presentation will be an interim budget and not a full budget. The budget session of parliament will begin on january 31. rajya sabha and lok sabha will start the budget session with the speech of the President of the Republic of india in the meeting of both houses and the next day the budget for the next financial year will be tabled in the Lok Sabha. Because the Budget comes before the general elections, according to the forecast of economists, some significant announcements are expected through the interim budget on february 1. It is also said that farmers will be the main target in this budget announcement.
Some economists have suggested that under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman nidhi or PM-Kisan scheme, the government will increase the direct payment to farmers by about 50% from the current amount of Rs 6,000 to Rs 9,000. Economists say that this interim budget is also expected to see a fresh expansion under the central government's housing scheme, the BM Awas Yojana, and a push for job creation. The central government allocated about Rs 60,000 crore for the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman fund scheme in last year's budget.
Thus there is ample opportunity to allocate an additional amount in this budget statement. It is noteworthy that an additional 14,524 crore rupees has been allocated to the MGNREGS scheme in addition to the 60,000 crore rupees allocated in the budget on behalf of the central government. In this interim budget, additional funds are expected to be allocated to these 3 main programs that will directly reach people. The Modi government may have planned to reach a large section of the population by touching on Vyvasyam, monthly wage earners buying their own houses, and the MGNREGS scheme which creates employment.
