Ahead of the presentation of the Union Budget, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will be leaving at the Rashtrapati Bhavan shortly, with the much-anticipated briefcase.
Jaitley, carrying the 'cherry-brown' briefcase containing the Budget, was seen at the Ministry of Finance (North Block) along with Finance Secretary Dr. Hasmukh Adhia, Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian, Economic Affairs Secretary Subhash Chandra Garg and others, while heading towards the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
The finance minister is expected to proceed to Parliament, once returning back to North Block from the President's house.
The Budget will be presented at 11 a.m., after a cabinet meeting.
Meanwhile, the Union Budget papers have arrived in Parliament.
This will be the last full-fledged budget of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government and the first post the rollout of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
