Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Friday said that in the upcoming budget, the state government will try to ensure that industries and businesses facing problems due to coronavirus pandemic gain momentum and every section gets new opportunities for progress.

"In such a situation, it will be our endeavour that in this difficult period the needy section gets support, employment opportunities increase and the economy gets back on track. For this, the state government will make all possible provisions in the coming budget," Gehlot said.

He said the last two years have been challenging due to the pandemic but with the cooperation of all sections of society, the state government has given an impetus to development works by doing excellent financial management even in such a situation. Gehlot said the government has ensured that along with better health services, the needy get adequate social security.

He was addressing a meeting of the State Level Tax Advisory Committee. In the meeting, the committee members gave suggestions for the state budget. The chief minister said the government implemented the amnesty scheme in the budget of 2021-22 under which full relief has been given to the businessmen affected by Covid by providing 100 per cent rebate in interest and penalty.

He urged entrepreneurs to include revenue earning measures in their suggestions, keeping in view the present circumstances, so that the state government can be facilitated in discharging its social responsibility.
