Just a couple of days before the presentation of the Union Budget 2023, the Union Ministry of Finance said that this year's budget will be presented in a paperless form. Following Nirmala Sitharaman's speech at the Parliament, the entire budget will be made available to the public on a mobile application called Union Budget Mobile App. The app would give users access to the entire set of budget documents. Further, the application may be downloaded on the iOS and Android operating systems.

“Like the previous two Union Budgets, Union Budget 2023-24 will also be delivered in paperless form. The Union Budget 2023-24 is to be presented on 1st February, 2023,” tweeted the Ministry of Finance.
