The government recently named Piyush Goyal the interim Finance Minister owing to Arun Jaitley indisposition.

While the government is yet to announce who will be presenting the Budget, traditionally the Finance Minister presents the Budget. Hence, one can assume Piyush Goyal will present it.

Arun Jaitley had left for the United States on January 13 for what was called a regular medical check-up and since then there have been reports that he may not return to present the interim Budget.

News reports suggest Jaitley underwent a surgery at a hospital in New York on January 22 and has been advised at least two weeks rest by doctors.

The interim Budget will be presented in the Parliament on February 1, 2019.
