The Punjab Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government will unveil its first budget on June 27. This budget will be paperless. The mobile app will be used to make the budget available to the MLAs. The administration of CM Bhagwant Mann will forward a proposal to create One MLA-One Pension and permanent staff during this session.

The government had earlier passed the ordinance of One MLA-One Pension. 
This was submitted for approval by the governor. The governor, however, sent it back and said the legislature should pass it before sending it. Then, from today, it will be passed during the session.

The administration will include funding for free power in the budget while also paying attention to school wellness. Every home would receive 300 free power units starting in July, according to CM Bhagwant Mann. In addition to this, significant budgetary provisions might be made for the infrastructure of hospitals and schools.
