In the first 2 days of the budget session, President Kovind will address the joint sitting of the two houses on June 19, then the election of speaker and oath taking ceremony of the members of parliament will take place.
The primary concern of the budget would be the continuous dipping of the GDP, which is currently at 6.8%, the lowest in the last 5 years of NDA 1. Important to note that when Narendra Modi took the charge as the PM, at that the time the GPD was at 4.74%.
