Union Budget Mobile App: As the Union Budget 2021-22 is going paperless for the first time, the government has rolled out a dedicated application- Union Budget Mobile App for users to access budget related information and documents. The application is available for Android and iOS smartphones where all the documents presented within the parliament will be available in a hassle-free manner. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman earlier in January had started the compilation of Budget documents.
It is to note that the mobile application will provide complete access to 14 Union Budget documents. These documents will be inclusive of the Annual Financial Statement (commonly known as Budget), Finance Bill, Demand for Grants (DG) along with others. The government app has been developed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC) along with the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA). After the budget is presented in the parliament, all documents will be uploaded on the Mobile app.
