BHUBANESWAR: The budget session of the Odisha Assembly will start from March 15, according to a notification issued by the parliamentary affairs department.

The notification said the annual budget will be presented in the house on March 18. The sixth session of the 15th Assembly will be held in two phases. While the first phase of the session will be from March 15 to March 31, the second phase will be held from April 26 till May 20.

Finance minister Pradip Kumar Amat will place the regular budget after the Union budget is approved in Parliament.

As the revenue-sharing pattern with the state has changed after formation of the NITI Aayog, the state government is planning to prepare the budget after knowing the exact allocations made by the Centre under different schemes.

The state government will place the Appropriation Bill to be passed in the assembly for two months before March 31.

A regular budget for the remaining 10 months will be sent to the standing committee and its comments submitted by April 25, Amat said.

Governor SC Jamir will deliver the opening address on the first day. Assembly secretariat sources said the budget session will have 33 working days.
