The budget session of the Punjab Assembly will begin on June 24 and the Bhagwant Mann-led government will present its first budget on June 27. A decision in this regard was taken in the cabinet meeting here.
Greetings to all Punjabis! The budget prepared with the suggestions of common people will be presented for the first time in the history of Punjab. Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann tweeted that it was decided in the cabinet meeting of the Punjab government that the budget session would run from June 24 to June 30 and the budget of the common people would be presented on June 27.
Earlier, the AAP-led government had sought suggestions from the general public for the state budget for the year 2022-23, while terming it as “Janata Budget”. The Aam Aadmi Party came to power in March after winning 92 of the state’s 117 Punjab assembly constituencies.
The Assembly had passed the vote on account for the first three months of the financial year 2022-23, April to June.
