Earlier, the AAP-led government had sought suggestions from the general public for the state budget for the year 2022-23 while dubbing it as a "Janta Budget".
The Aam Aadmi Party came to power in March after winning 92 of the 117 Punjab assembly segments in the state.
The assembly had passed a vote-on-account for the first three months, April to June, of the financial year 2022-23.
