UP Budget Highlights: First budget of ‘Amrit Kaal’, says CM Adityanath


Uttar Pradesh Budget 2023 Highlights: Uttar Pradesh finance minister Suresh Khanna on Wednesday presented the state’s annual budget, for the financial year 2023-24. This was the second budget for ‘Yogi 2.0,’ or chief minister Yogi Adityanath, under whose leadership the ruling BJP was re-elected in March last year.

The 2023 UP budget assumes significance also because of the Lok Sabha elections, slated for April-May 2024; as the country’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh sends 80 members to the lower house of Parliament – the highest among all states and UTs. In 2014 and 2019, the BJP won 71 and 62 seats respectively from Uttar Pradesh, and crossed the majority mark in Lok Sabha on its own. 

In 2024, PM Narendra Modi and the BJP will seek their third term at the Centre.
