Assam Finance Minister Ajanta Neog said that the state budget for the fiscal year 2023-24 will be presented on March 16.
The budget will be presented at the Assam Legislative Assembly.
Neog informed that the budget covers socio-economic aspects of the state and it involves little good news for women.
Speaking on previous year’s budget, she said, “Last year attempts were to fulfill the promises made in the nine-month budget. We had been quite successful in this regard.”
Earlier, Ajanta Neog announced that the government will make 40,000 new appointments between May 10 and May 20.
Speaking at the ongoing budget session of the Assam Legislative Assembly earlier on the day, the finance minister made the announcement. The announcement came in response to Sivasagar MLA and Raijor Dal chief Akhil Gogoi’s question during the ongoing budget session.
Meanwhile, Akhil Gogoi had also questioned the government on overlapping in appointments to state government positions, which finance minister Ajanta Neog firmly refuted.
