With Budget 2015 just a day away, the entire nation awaits with hope. As Finance Minister Arun Jaitley prepares to present the Union Budget on February 28, nearly every economic indicator is favourable – inflation is down, so are crude oil prices, foreign exchange reserves are at a peak and foreign investors are interested again in India’s stock markets. So, what will Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his team do to return India to the oath of exponential growth?
To decode this much-awaited Budget, CNN-IBN and IBN7 will bring rolling coverage on the Union Budget on February 28 under the aegis of the specially branded shows ‘The Modi Budget’ on CNN-IBN and ‘Jaitley Ki Potli’ on IBN7.

With more than 18 hours of live programming on each channel, the network is all set to be the one stop destination for viewers to know everything about the upcoming budgets.
The editorial teams of both the channels, including Bhupendra Chaubey, Sumit Awasthi, Karma Paljor, Shereen Bhan, Sanjay Pugalia and Anubha Bhonsle will bring Budget updates, public reactions and impact assessment.
