A revolutionary step by Assam: First e-budget in IndiaIt is a revolutionary step. This is going to happen for the first time in India. Assam Finance Minister Shri Himant Biswa Sarma is going to take this revolutionary step tomorrow. This is a very significant step signalling saving of tonnes of pages used to publish budget speech. It will be cost-effective also.
Earlier also, the Finance Minister of Assam sought the opinions/suggestions from the public relating to the budget. This step helps the Government to have an active interaction with people regarding the state budget.
I whole-heartedly appreciate the effort of the State Government of Assam. Hope other states also follow this good initiative.
