All eyes are on Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman as she has started her Budget.
Sitharaman will also present the tax proposals and financial statements for the fiscal year 2022-23.
Sitharaman tabled the Economic Survey in the Lok Sabha on Monday (January 31).
The Survey has projected GDP (gross domestic product) growth at 8.0-8.5 per cent for financial year 2022-23, against the National Statistical Office’s (NSO) first advance estimates of 9.2 per cent for 2021-22.
The Economic Survey pointed to inflation as a concern, but said that the macroeconomic stability indicators signal the economy is ‘well-placed’ to take on the challenges of the next fiscal year.
