Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had already asked for public views on the budget earlier.
Modi had a brainstorming session with the top 11 industry captains including Ratan Tata and Mukesh Ambani this week on economic revival and demand growth. The 5 per cent growth projection is the 11-year low.
The Budget is likely to be presented on February 1, though date has not been announced yet.
Gross domestic product is estimated to grow 5.0 per cent in 2019-20, slower than the 6.8 per cent growth of 2018-19, the Ministry of Statistics said in a statement.

BJP bhartiya jhuti party will not do single development work. as they are already busy to divert public attention through unnecessary things thats why now india become poor country and GDP touched down to 4.5 from 8.5,
please resign as day by day economy is losing
Modi won in 2014 because of focussed economic development in Gujarat during his time impressed Indians. Even though Modi is doing his best for uplift of economy, have nots and common man, the policies of dynasty party, regional parties and 'kichidi' govts at state level are concentrating on irrational freebies and vote bank politics and making economy dud. People must realize this.
There was development before BJP came to power in 2014. From 2014 BJP had absolute power in center and many states were under BJP. But we all have seen in 5 years what a sloppy work was done by Modi. Modi is a Pakistani in disguise.
