Modi and His Ministers Spent this ridiculous amount on Travel

A right to information (RTI) application has revealed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his council of ministers spent nearly Rs 393 crore on domestic and international travel in their five years in office. It has also come to light that their expense was the highest in the first year.

Incidentally, in December 2018, the Ministry of External Affairs in a reply in parliament said Modi had undertaken 48 foreign visits, costing nearly Rs 2,021 crore to the exchequer. This reply, however, covered the cost of maintenance of the PM’s aircraft and setting up of a secure hotline as well.

It also included the cost incurred on other members of the delegation, including representatives from the Prime Minister’s Office, security agencies, MEA and the media.

On the other hand, the reply furnished by the Pay and Accounts Office, Cabinet Affairs in case of the RTI filed by activist Anil Galgali only took into account the personal expense on the travel of the prime minister and other ministers.

Through the query, Galgali had asked the PMO to reveal the details of the total expenditure incurred on Foreign Travel Expenses (FTE) and Domestic Travel Expenses (DTE) by Modi and his council of ministers since May 2014.

The reply stated that Modi and his ministers spent Rs 392.57 lakh on domestic and international trips.
