What is the Union Budget and the Interim Budget?

As per Article 112 of the Indian Constitution, the Union Budget is defined as a statement of the estimated receipts and expenditure of the government for that particular year. It is also referred to as the Annual Financial Statement as it details the account of the government finances for the financial year that starts from 1st April to 31st March. The Budget documents also include Demands for Grants (as mandated by Article 113 of the Constitution) and a Finance Bill (mandated under Article 110 (1)(a) of the Constitution) detailing the changes related of taxes proposed in the Budget.

An interim budget is a temporary financial document presented by the government in an election year as a full-fledged budget can't be passed due to possibility of a change in the executive after the polls. The interim budget serves as a bridge to keep the government running for the transition period (April - July) until the new one is formed. Article 116 of the Constitution allows the Lower House (Lok Sabha) to make any grant in advance for the estimated expenditure for part of any financial year by voting and passing such a legislation, i.e. vote on account.
