Finance Minister Pranajit Singha Roy presented the demand for additional expenditure allocation and vote on account in the Tripura Assembly today. Today he has submitted a demand for additional expenditure allocation of Rs 3065.37 crore and vote on account of Rs 9066.56 crore.
Incidentally, the first session of the 13th Tripura Legislative Assembly has started today from Friday. It was not possible for the Tripura government to present a full budget in an election year.
As a result, the finance minister today presented the Vote on Account for the first four months of the financial year 2023-24. Meanwhile, the assembly session was not held this year around the elections. As a result, the claim for allocation of additional expenses could not be presented. Therefore, today he has submitted the demand for additional expenditure allocation for the financial year 2022-23.
