Interim Budget comes in a final year of the ruling government as general elections are scheduled in the same year. Just like full budget, the government presents full financial statement-its expenditure, receipts and projections for the current fiscal and makes projections for the upcoming fiscal year through it. An interim budget is also a detailed set of accounts that also includes a complete financial statement.
