Budget 2018: Maharashtra Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar today said the Union Budget gives priority to balanced development of rural and urban areas and encourages employment creation in health and agriculture sectors. The budget presented by Arun Jaitley today also paid heed to transportation needs of Mumbai, he pointed out. “This Budget will ensure balanced development of the nation while at the same time it has specifically focused on the agriculture sector,” Mungantiwar said in a statement.

School Education Minister Vinod Tawde termed the budget as one that will strengthen and improve the standard of education. “There is positive allocation and emphasis on digital education and it also includes steps for teachers training.
