He said the union budget presented earlier this month will give a boost to various sectors.

"The recent budget has no new taxes on the people of this country," he said, adding that Modi Government "is development- driven".

He said all sections of people have appreciated the budget except the opposition parties.

The minister said that the revised estimates (RE) 2020-21 for expenditure is 34.50 lakh crore as against budgetary estimates (BE) 2020-21 of 30.42 lakh crore.

He said the budget for 2021-22 is very transparent and aims for the overall development of the country.

"In the next four to five years, India would become a USD five trillion economy. The general budget for 2021-22 has been designed carefully," he said.
