India Lost Whopping Rs 375 Crore In Budget Session, More Than Border Infrastructure Allocation


With 250 working hours lost in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, the Budget Session was a complete washout. Both Houses of Parliament in the Budget Session adjourned sine die on Friday with merely five of 19 starred questions replied orally by Ministers in the Rajya Sabha, and 17 of the 580 such questions answered in the Lok Sabha during the 29 sittings. While there’s a blame-game going on between the opposition and the ruling party for causing the washout, what’s significant is that India lost money for each minute that was wasted.

According to government’s last estimates, each minute of running the Parliment costs Rs 2.5 lakh and with as much as 250 working hours, the amount of money lost adds up to whopping Rs 375 crore. Interestingly, this amount is bigger than what the government allocated to the BSF and the ITBP for border infrastructure. The government had allocated sanctioned Rs 369.84 crore for building bunkers and special climate-controlled huts along Indo-Pak and Sino-India borders. Read More
