Budget 2022: Broken tradition of Halwa ceremony, Finance Minister distributed sweets, no budget printing work, see the reason

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present the general budget on February.  This time the budget will be completely paperless.  At the same time, due to the release on the iPad, this time the pudding making ceremony has not been done.  In fact, this year, due to lack of budget printing work, the Halwa ceremony has not been organized for the employees preparing the budget.  According to the Finance Ministry, instead of pudding, sweets have been fed to these employees.

As soon as the budget speech is completed, the budget will be on the mobile app
As soon as Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman completes the budget speech in Parliament, this entire budget will be made available on the Union Budget mobile app.  This app can be downloaded from the site of Union Budget or the site of Ministry of Finance.  This app is made available in Hindi as well as in English.  This app will be available on both Android and iOS platforms.

All documents will be available on the app
The tradition of paperless budget has started since last year, while this app was launched to see the digital budget, so that all the members of parliament along with the general public can see this budget on their mobile.  At the same time, after the presentation of the budget in the Parliament this year also, all the documents related to the budget will be available on the Union Budget mobile app.

The Halwa ceremony was organized on 23 January last year, but this time the event has been canceled in view of the third wave of corona epidemic.  Instead of pudding, sweets have been distributed to the employees.  Let us tell you that the printing of General Budget document in India used to start with Halwa Ceremony, Halwa was made in a pan inside the closed campus.  The Finance Minister was also present in this Halwa Ceremony.  After this, this pudding was distributed among the officers and employees of the Ministry of Finance.
