Uttar Pradesh budget session to commence on July 11
Lucknow: The budget session of Uttar Pradesh legislature will commence on July 11 with Yogi Adityanath government presenting its first annual budget in state assembly.
The session will have around 15 sittings and is likely to conclude on July 28.
An official statement from Principal Secretary of the Legislative Council Mohan Yadav confirmed the dates stating that the next session of the Legislative Council will commence on July 11.
All eyes will be on farmer’s loan waiver which was announced in the first cabinet meeting of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government but could not be executed due to lack of budgetary allocations. It is being expected that the 2017-18 budget will include measures to eliminate additional resources to offload Rs. 36,000 crore meant for crop loan waiver.
It will also throw light on the utilisation of Rs. 34,000 crore required to meet expenses for implementation of the seventh pay panel's recommendations.
It is to be mentioned that, the Assembly session was earlier held from May 15 to May 19, in which the State GST (Goods and Services Tax) Bill was passed unanimously.
