Piyush Goyal's Union Budget 2019 Speech 

New Delhi: Union Minister Piyush Goyal presented the Union Budget 2019 in the parliament today . The interim budget comes before the National elections, due by May and is widely expected to replicate a full budget with big announcements to win over the masses. After facing defeat in the heartland states, it is the last chance for the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party to cover its bases. It has been anticipated that the government might consider a cash handout and a monthly income programme for farmers even though it will cost the exchequer amid slowing growth and shrinking revenue collections. Tax relief proposals may also be announced. The government, on Thursday, went into damage control mode as a yet-to-be-released report said unemployment was at a four-decade high in 2017-18.
