Vice President for Parliamentary Affairs Hosseinali Amiri submitted the budget bill for the next fiscal year (March 2021-22) to the parliament on Wednesday.
Unlike previous years, President Hassan Rouhani did not show up at the parliament for the budget day upon the advice of the National Coronavirus Headquarters. 
In the next fiscal year (starting March 21, 2021), the operating budget (including revenues derived mainly from taxation and exports at the disposal of the government) has been projected to stand at 8,413 trillion rials ($33.65 billion at the market exchange rate of 250,000 rials per US dollar). 
Add to this, 884 trillion rials ($3.53 billion) were earmarked for ministries and governmental institutions, which take the total sum of the general budget to 9,298 trillion rials ($37.19 billion).
