Union Finance and Corporate Affairs Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was admitted to AIIMS on December 26 with symptoms of viral fever and is recovering, official sources said.

According to ANI, the 63-year-old has been admitted to a private ward of the hospital for a routine check-up around noon.

The hospitalisation of the 63-year-old minister comes at a crucial time since the presentation of Budget of the nation is only a month away.

On Saturday, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman attended the 35th annual convocation of The Tamil Nadu Dr MGR Medical University in Chennai. The finance minister observed that medical education in Tamil Nadu should be taught in Tamil language as there was a definite need towards strengthening it.

On Sunday, the finance minister paid floral tribute to the former Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, on his birth anniversary at ‘Sadaiv Atal’ in New Delhi.
