Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present her government's last full Budget before the general elections in 2024. The Union Budget for FY24 will be Sitharaman's fifth-straight Budget.

Back in 2019, when she presented her first Union Budget, she drew everyone's attention by replacing the 'Budget briefcase' with a 'bahi-khata'. However, in 2021 the bahi-khata was replaced with a tablet, giving a boost to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's push for Digital India.

The Budget speech, delivered by the union finance minister consists of two sections - Part A and Part B.
