Union Budget 2014-15 Summary

Published on Tuesday, February 18, 2014
Finance minister P.Chidambaram presented interim budget for the year 2014-15 on 17-02-2014. This budget is highly influenced by general elections. In major part of his speech P.Chidambaram was talking about achievements of UPA governments. More or less it was report card of UPA government. I really appreciate "One rank One pension" decision. This decision will directly benefit 47 lakh families.
