Today:- New Delhi, Feb – Going the green way, the central government decided not to hand out hard copies of General Budget 2016-17 on Monday, making a departure from tradition.

The general budget, an exhaustive document, was handed over to journalists in the parliament building from designated counters every year after it was presented in the Lok Sabha.

This year, however, the government decided not to give copies to journalists as part of its bid to go green and save trees.

The general budget runs into hundreds of pages, and has several booklets including the details of allocations to different ministries, plan and revenue expenditure and other financial details.

  1. An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If possible, as you become expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more details? It is highly helpful for me. Big thumb up for this blog post!

  2. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
