This is the first time ever for the Indian government to go paperless for the Union Budget. The app has been launched for hassle-free access of the documents related to the budget by the general public and MPs. The Union Budget 2022 will be available on this new app after the presentation on February 1 in Parliament.

Notably, this new Union Budget mobile app is available in both English and Hindi. Given that there will be many apps with a similar name and scammers trying to clone this app, users should make sure they download the app with National Informatics Centre as the publisher.

As per the finance ministry, this new Union Budget mobile app can also be downloaded from the official Union Budget Web Portal. The documents related to the budget can be downloaded by the public via this portal.

The Union Budget mobile app will provide access to 14 documents related to the Union Budget. These documents include Annual Financial Statement called Budget, Finance Bill, Budget Speech, Demand for Grants, etc. as per the Constitution. All these documents will be available in PDF format and can be downloaded in the same format.

Another notable change in the traditional budget procedure is the "Halwa Ceremony", which is hosted every year prior to the budget. Now, it will be switched to sweets. This ceremony marks the final stage of the Union Budget process.

Usually, the core staff involved in framing the Union Budget will go through a "lock-in" at their workplaces after preparing the budget. The ministry explains that this is to maintain the secrecy of the budget. These staff and officers can contact even their loved ones only after the Budget is presented by the Union Finance Minister on February 1 in the Parliament.
