The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA) on Tuesday recommended holding of the Budget session from January 31.

The address of the President and tabling of the Economic Survey are likely to take place on January 31.

The committee headed by Home Minister Rajnath Singh met in the capital and made these recommendations to President Pranab Mukherjee.

The meeting was also attended by parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar, external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.

The government has decided to present the combined Budget – including allocations for the railways-  on February 1 as part of an overhaul that would end the 92-year old tradition of a separate railway budget, News 18 reported.

The first phase of the Budget session will run till February 9.

According to officials, the move might allow for earlier allocation of funds for government schemes and projects and lead to their better implementation on the ground.
