It caters to every section of society, including women, students, youths, and individuals from the third gender. Additionally, the budget aims to benefit marginalized communities such as Janajati, Scheduled Castes (SC), Other Backward Classes (OBC), and people from all walks of life”, said CM.

I am confident that this budget will contribute to the sustained development and prosperity of the state, enabling us to achieve our vision of ‘Ek Tripura Srestha Tripura”, said CM.
