Government sets 4.8% growth target for next year; 10 % increase in govt employees salary

Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin on Friday presented the budget for the fiscal year 2021-2022 in the National Assembly amid a chaotic environment as members of the Oppositions continued to chant slogans to interrupt his speech.

The session, which began at 4pm, provided an insight into the government’s estimated expenditures, revenues, and how it aims to allocate funds for vital sectors of the economy.

Despite the ruckus, the minister continued his speech uninterruptedly and said that the volume of the federal budget has been set at Rs8.5 trillion.

He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan does not shy away from taking difficult decisions for the sake of the country.
