As a precursor to the prime minister’s meeting, finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman is understood to have reviewed the Budget preparation across her ministry.
The government is unlikely to make major changes in the key numbers for the July 5 Budget.
Tax targets set in the interim Budget have been widely assessed as unrealistic, and senior revenue department officials have told the finance minister that the February 1 targets cannot be met.
