The Union Budget 2023-24 is being presented at a difficult juncture. The Finance Minister faces a tough challenge in continuing to support growth through higher public investment while ensuring that the fiscal deficit does not get out of hand. There are concerns in the domestic economy with manufacturing hitting a speed bump and consumption slowing.

Threat of recession

The global scenario is too gloomy with a looming threat of recession in most advanced economies and the continuing Russia-Ukraine conflict creating geopolitical uncertainties. In this context what can the Budget do to keep growth on even keel as India is probably one of the brightest sparks in the world economy.
