Sharing some expectations from Union Finance Minister just ahead of Budget 2024, Mr. Manikanth Challa, CEO and founder, Workruit, "According to the budget document for the fiscal year 2023-24, the government has allocated over 1 lakh crore to the Ministry of Education, emphasizing education and comprehensive skill-building for students. We anticipate a continuation of this trend, with a focus on holistic development that aligns education, employment, and health to foster a resilient and inclusive economy. Bridging the digital divide, especially in rural areas, and promoting online education initiatives are critical expectations."

Skill development initiatives, aligning the workforce with emerging market demands, and support for entrepreneurship are seen as instrumental in stimulating economic growth and creating job opportunities. Our overarching hope is for a budget that seamlessly integrates education, employment, and health, leveraging digital technologies to enhance efficiency, transparency, and inclusivity across these crucial sectors. Ultimately, this approach aims to propel India towards a resilient and digitally empowered future," Mr Challa also added.
