Telangana is all prepared for the Budget Session of the Telangana Legislature that starts on Monday. All the legislatures have been asked to go through the COVID test and observe strict COVID-19 protocol before being allowed to attend the assembly. The annual budget of the state will be presented on March 18.

Finance Minister T Harish Rao has reportedly discussed the budget proposals with Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. The state is estimated to have suffered a loss of around Rs 50,000 crore due the COVID-19 pandemic and the budget is expected to bring some proposal for helping out those hit economically by the pandemic.
