As Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman gears up to present the sixth Budget of her tenure, here’s a quick guide on where and how to catch the live coverage of the Budget for the financial year 2024-2025.

Ms. Sitharaman will set a record by presenting the sixth Budget in a row — five annual Budgets and one interim — a feat achieved so far only by former Prime Minister Morarji Desai. With the presentation of interim Budget on February 1, Ms. Sitharaman will surpass the records of her predecessors such as Manmohan Singh, Arun Jaitley, P. Chidambaram, and Yashwant Sinha, who had presented five budgets in a row. Desai, as Finance Minister, had presented five annual Budgets and one interim Budget between 1959-1964.
