Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is all set to present Union Budget for 2021-22 on February 1, 2021. Notably, this will be India’s first budget post-COVID-19.

There is a big gap in terms of deficit, investment and savings owing to the unprecedented economic conditions.

The union budget aims to fill that very gap and brings new hopes for the country and its citizens in particular.

Since budget presentation is a big event, this year too will see it coming, but with curtailed protocols.

Owing to the unprecedented pandemic situation, the finance minister will present the budget but with COVID-appropriate behavior.

Meanwhile, you can also know all about the Economic Survey 2021, which Nirmala Sitharaman tabled in Parliament on January 29.

With just two days to go for Union Budget 2021-22, let’s have a look at FM Nirmala Sitharaman’s team members who are part of the Budget preparations.
