Budget session 2023 from today

The Budget session of Parliament begins on Tuesday with the maiden address of President Droupadi Murmu to the joint sitting of both Houses.
While the government’s priority will be to seek approval on the Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address and the Finance Bill, the Opposition is raring to corner it on a range of issues, including the Adani-Hindenburg row, a nationwide caste-based economic census and the women’s reservation bill.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present the last full-fledged Union Budget of the Modi government before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections on February 1. The Economic Survey will be tabled on Tuesday after the President’s address. The government plans to bring around 36 bills – including four related to the budgetary exercise – during the session.
The session will have 27 sittings and will continue till April 6 with a month-long recess to examine the budget papers.
The first part of the session will conclude on February 14. Parliament will reconvene on March 12 for the second part of the Budget Session.
