India’s first budget was presented by Liaquat Ali Khan
India’s budget for 1946 was presented by Liaquat Ali Khan who became the first Prime Minister of Pakistan a year and a half later.
In the Central Legislative Assembly, Liaquat Ali Khan, the finance minister of the interim government headed by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, presented the budget on February 2, in the same building which is now called Parliament House.
Liaquat Ali Khan was a special companion of Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Interim Prime Minister Nehru’s cabinet also included dignitaries like Sardar Patel, Bhim Rao Ambedkar, Babu Jagjivan Ram.
Before partition, Liaquat Ali also contested elections for the UP Assembly from Meerut and Muzaffarnagar, although he belonged to the royal family of Karnal.
He was the greatest leader of the All India Muslim League after Jinnah. When the interim government was formed, the Muslim League sent him as its representative. He was given the charge of the Ministry of Finance by Pandit Nehru.
Liaquat Ali Khan had termed his budget proposals as ‘socialist budget’ but the country’s industry was very angry with his budget. Liaquat Ali Khan was accused of keeping the proposals too strict, which hurt the interests of business people.
Liaquat Ali Khan was also accused of presenting an “anti-Hindu budget” in a way. He had proposed a 25 per cent tax on total profits of Rs 100,000 and doubled the corporate tax on traders.
In his controversial budget proposals, Liaquat Ali Khan also promised to form a commission with the intention of cracking down on tax evaders.
Socialist-minded leaders in the Congress supported the resolutions but Sardar Patel was of the view that Liaquat Ali Khan was taking action against Hindu businessmen like Ghanshyam Das Badla, Jamnalal Bajaj and Walchad under a deliberate strategy.
All these industrialists were affiliated with the Congress. They provided financial support to the Congress.
Ghanshyam Das Badla and Jamnalal Bajaj were among the people close to Gandhi. Barla, along with some other industrialists, established the Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 1927. Barla Des was a staunch supporter of the independence movement and was interested in providing funds for Mahatma Gandhi’s activities.
Obviously, Liaquat Ali Khan’s budget would have had an effect on Muslim and Parsi traders as well, but it was a fact that Hindus still dominated the business.
There were groups of Parsis like Tata and Godrej even then. A large group belonging to the Muslim community was the ‘supply’ of the pharma sector. Its founder was Hamid. He was also a supporter of Gandhiji. Apart from Supla, there was probably no large group in that period which was commanded by the Muslim management.
Liaquat Ali Khan was also accused of taking too much time to green-light the expenditure and suggestions of Hindu ministers in the interim government. Sardar Patel had even said that he could not appoint a Chaprasi without the permission of Liaquat Ali Khan.
After the split
Many people also came forward in defense of Liaquat Ali Khan. He said he could not be anti-Hindu because his wife, Gul Rana, was originally from a Hindu family. It is a different matter that his family became Christians some time ago.
Liaquat Ali Khan Budget Paper You went from the house in Harding Lane (now Tilak Lane) to the building of the Central Legislative Assembly (now Parliament). His residence is used as the official residence of the High Commissioner of Pakistan in India after the partition of the country.
Assassination of Benazir
Liaquat Ali Khan was shot dead at a rally in Rawalpindi in 1951. The killer was then killed by security personnel who was an Afghan citizen. Decades later, Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in the same arena where Liaquat Ali Khan was assassinated.
The first budget of independent India was presented by RK Shamgam Shetty on November 26, 1947 but in a way it was a review of the country’s economy. It did not propose a new tax. The reason was that the budget for 1948-49 was only 95 days away.
