Odisha Finance Minister Niranjan Pujari on Wednesday presented the vote on account of Rs 1,06,498 crore for the first four months of 2022-23 fiscal and announced a total budget outlay of Rs 2 lakh crore for the next financial year.

Since the full-fledged budget could not be presented in view of the panchayat and urban polls in February and March, the vote on account was required for expenditure on payment of salary, pension, interest, calamities expenditure and other ongoing schemes and programmes, the minister said.

The vote on account will cover expenditures for April, May, June and July of the financial year.
