And this has been the focus of the Narendra Modi-led government.
The budget will hugely benefit the masses as all sectors of the economy have been appropriately covered with increased allocation for key schemes, he said. It will also enormously benefit the SC/ST communities.
There has been a drastic improvement in the allocation for Schedule Castes and Schedule Tribes with an increase of 35% and 28% for both respectively.
