HYDERABAD: The first budget of Telangana state will be presented after Diwali. The budget session may commence any day after Diwali, sources said.

As a preparatory for the budget session, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao held a meeting with the officials of finance, irrigation and secretaries of all other departments here on Monday.

The chief minister reportedly gave directions on the priorities of the government, especially in irrigation and other sectors.

‘’As it is a Budget meeting, we cannot reveal the details, till the budget is finalised and presented,” an official said.

However, the dates of the budget session are yet to be finalised. The Assembly secretariat did not issue any schedule for the session.

Funds will be earmarked in the budget for various departments for the coming five months from November to March, sources.

Vote-on-account budget was presented in the combined Andhdra Pradesh government.

Then, the budget was divided among AP and Telangana states.

Later, using the provisions of the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014, the Telangana government submitted expenditure statement to the governor ESL Narasimhan and got his approval for October and November months.
