key things about the upcoming budget 2024

Vote-on-account: As it's an interim budget, the main purpose will be to provide the government with the authority to spend money till a new government takes office after the elections.

No major policy changes: Sitharaman has already ruled out any "spectacular announcements" in the interim budget, so don't expect major reforms or new schemes.

Focus on key sectors: The government may allocate funds for critical sectors like agriculture, infrastructure, and social welfare to keep the economy running smoothly till the new government takes charge.

Electioneering undertones: With the general elections just around the corner, the ruling BJP government may use the budget to woo voters with populist measures like tax breaks or subsidies.
