New Delhi, March 14: The government today got the Budget for fiscal year beginning April 1 passed in Lok Sabha without discussion by applying the guillotine process as the opposition paralysed the functioning for the eighth day. 

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley moved the Finance Bill 2018, which contains taxation proposals of his fifth and final budget, as well as the appropriation bill that details spendings in various departments, amid the din created by slogan-shouting opposition. The bills were passed by voice vote. Ruling BJP-led NDA has an absolute majority in the Lower House of Parliament.
