What is Interim Budget ?

An Interim Budget is presented when the government is in the last year of its term, just before the general elections.


The primary purpose of an Interim Budget is to seek parliamentary approval for essential government spending for a short period until the new government is formed and a full-fledged budget can be presented by the incoming government.


The Interim Budget typically includes a vote-on-account, which allows the government to withdraw funds from the treasury to meet its expenditure needs until the new government presents a full budget. An Interim Budget does not introduce new policies or significant changes in taxation.

Decision-Making Authority:

In the case of an Interim Budget, the government is considered a caretaker government as it is in the last year of its term. Hence, it refrains from making major policy decisions or introducing significant changes.

Duration of Approval:

The Interim Budget seeks approval for a short duration, typically until the formation of the new government. It is passed with the understanding that the incoming government will present a full budget.
