In a time bewitched by the pandemic, the government has introduced the budget as advised by the economists.

“The budget size is somehow as advised by us,” senior economist Dr. Pyakuryal said. “In such a pandemic struck time, it would have been difficult had there been a bigger budget.”

He added that had the budget come in a bigger size, it could have increased inflation.
