Finance Secretary Suman Sharma confirmed that that the budget will be presented by Finance Minister Ram Sharan Mahat on the day.

Speaker of the Legislature-Parliament Subash Nembang had been urging the government to present the budget at the earliest date possible so that lawmaker can leave the valley and head towards their respective constituencies soon.

According to Nembang the lawmakers will be going for collecting suggestions on the statute draft on July 17 after endorsing the advanced budget . The discussions over the budget however, will be started after they return from their constituencies.

The CA has directed the Committee on Citizen Relation and Public Opinion Collection to submit the compiled report of suggestions on July 23.
