Govt all set for Budget 2019, but what should you expect?

Feb 01, 2019 00:39 IST

Finance Minister Piyush Goyal is all set to present the Interim Budget in the Lok Sabha on Friday, and as the nation is in the grip of election mania, Goyal could junk all past precedents and go beyond a vote-on-account budget by showering mega schemes for farmers and tax sops for the middle class. Arun Jaitley has already indicated that the Interim Budget may go 'beyond the traditional' as the govt can't afford to wait on tackling agrarian crisis. With just hours to go for the budget presentation, will the Modi govt choose populism or fiscal prudence?
