"There are lot of announcements and explanations from time to time by the Ministry of Finance with regard to Indian economy which are continuously debated in public and therefore there is a need for a platform where this entire material should be made available, " an official statement on February 4 quoted finance minister Arun Jaitley as saying.
Jaitley further said that though most of the activities are in public domain, yet to make it easier for the world outside to know about the same, this YouTube official channel will be a useful platform.
Finance secretary Ratan P Watal; secretary, Department of Economic Affairs Shaktikanta Das; and revenue secretary Hasmukh Adhia were also present on the occasion.
The YouTube channel will disseminate information of the ministry through videos.

Since this is an official channel, investors and others, especially those who outside India could see the channel and see what is the official line of the government instead of looking at different news items which give contrary information. Secondly, finance ministry is very important ministry of the government and very frequently requires explanations and clarifications on many matters, especially tax, incentives, sops etc.. Those investors who eagerly want to invest in the country, would show interest the You tube channel of the ministry to have a more clarity on each and every issue.
