The Delhi Assembly’s budget session will start from March 15. The Delhi Cabinet on Monday gave its approval to run the session for 16 days, till March 31.
The Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit said the recommendation is being sent to lieutenant governor Tejendra Khanna to convene the session during the said dates.
The Delhi government was criticised by the Opposition for keeping the winter session very short. Officials said the Assembly would be able to take up all important works during the fortnight-long session.
Dikshit said the session will commence with the LG’s speech on March 15. While the budget will be presented on March 21, Dikshit said it would be passed by the Assembly on March 28.
