Interim Budget: The finance minister gave a temporary budget in February called the interim budget. This budget helps the government keep running until the new government comes in. It has money plans, government functions, funding, and important allocations but doesn’t usually make big new rules. This helps things stay the same until a new government starts after the elections.

Full Budget: After the general elections, the new government will share a full budget in July for the financial year. This budget will explain all their money plans, economic policies, revenue plans & expenditures for the entire financial year. This year, it is expected that the government will present its full budget in July 2024.

This dual budget helps and makes sure that the outgoing government does not make long-term commitments or changes in rules right before elections. This approach allows the incoming government to implement its financial strategies & policies. This is a normal way of doing things in India during election years, so the switch from old to new governments goes smoothly.

The government’s budget is valid until the end of the financial year on March 31, so the government can spend money until then and speeding rights only till that date. If there’s spending needed after March 1 but before the new government starts, the current government has to ask Parliament for permission to spend that money. That’s why they release the interim budget.

Employing the youth will be the biggest challenge for Central Government in the coming years. To employ the youth, the government can focus on improving the road transport, ports, railways, metro, monorail & airports in different cities. They can also provide development through various prioritized programs like Skill India & Startup India to promote development & employment.
