Jaipur: CM Ashok Gehlot will present the third budget of the Congress Government of Rajasthan in the Assembly today. Due to Corona, the budget is going to be very challenging for the Rajasthan government. In Rajasthan too, a paperless budget will be made like UP. CM Gehlot has only a finance department and it is being told that big announcements can be made to tackle unemployment and give relief to farmers.
There can be many important announcements in this budget of CM Ashok Gehlot with Economic Management. There may be big announcements in the budget, especially for farmers, youth and women. A senior finance department official said, 'The state budget will be paperless for the financial year 2020-21. The MLAs will be given a 'soft copy' on their tablet instead of a printed copy of the budget speech and other documents.'
Due to Corona, this time the government could not get a revenue of about 25 thousand crores. As an estimate, the fiscal deficit has reached beyond 40 thousand crores. Even after the loss, the government will present its digital budget in the House. MLAs will also be given tablets along with briefcases. By the end of the financial year, the fiscal deficit is estimated to be 45 thousand crores. There will be no Question Hour-Zero Hour in the House today. After the budget, there will be a press conference of Chief Minister Gehlot.
