Nirmala Sitaraman announced the Union budget for 2021 at the Lok Sabha.
During the 2021 Union budget on Monday, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman announced various measures, including in the health sector, rail transport and road infrastructure.
In survey-bound countries such as West Bengal and Tamil Nadu, major investments have been made in road and metro infrastructure.
Sitaraman said that budget preparation had never happened before because of Covid-19. “We could not imagine last year that the global economy, which was already suffering, would have to lose loved ones to the pandemic,” he said.
Sitaraman said the government has expanded its resources to cover all areas of life.
This budget is the first of its kind with restrictions for Covid-19. Even Bahi Khata was digitizing when Sitharaman brought a tablet made in India, which fulfilled the government’s request for Atmanirbhar Bharat.
The Minister of Finance said there are six pillars of the budget – health and welfare, physical and financial capital and infra-inclusive development, human capital, innovation and research and development, minimum governance, maximum governance.
