Budget 2022: On Tuesday, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present a completely paperless budget. Due to the non-availability of budget printing work, this time the Halwa ceremony will not be organized for the employees preparing the budget. According to the Ministry of Finance, due to corona infection, the employees involved in the budget-making will be given sweets instead of halwa(pudding).
After the presentation of the budget in the Parliament, the entire budget will be available on the mobile app called Union Budget. This app can be downloaded by visiting the Union Budget site or the Finance Ministry site. This app will be available in Hindi as well as in English. The app will be available on both Android and iOS platforms.
The Halwa ceremony was organized on 23 January last year but this time in view of the third wave of the corona epidemic it was not organized and instead sweets were given to the employees.
The printing of the General Budget document began with the Halwa Ceremony, in which pudding was made in a large pan. It was distributed among the officers and employees of the Ministry of Finance. The event was attended by the Finance Minister, Minister of State for Finance and other officials.
