in the parliament , for the benifit of the honourable MP's a subsidised canteen is being by the government where you can get wonderful dishes for the cost of a ciggarette packet or a big match box.please see the rates below.

1. SOUP-Rs.5.50/-

2.Biryani- Rs.8/-

3.Dosa - Rs.4/

4.Chapathi-Rs 1/-

5.Meals- Rs.2/

6.Tea - Rs.1/-

7. Chicken curry- Rs 24.50/-

8.Fish curry- Rs.13/-

 

our respected MP's get more than 2-2.5lakhs per month as pay and perks . with this type of rates they dont know how the common man is suffering and with what rate he is getting tea , two chapathi's and plate meals. this may be the reason as one of the respected planning commission bigman told sometime back that in towns one can get good meals at Rs.27/- and in cities at Rs. 37/-.

 

why cant the government give such food rates in the cities and towns so that nobody will cry about raising prices and there is no need to increase the dear allowance to the employees often. MEMBERS TO PLEASE THINKOVER AND POST THEIR COMMENTS.

The cost and services of Parliament Canteen is exclusively borne by Ministry of Railways. Thus, it is clear that the subsidy for MPs' meals, snacks and coffee/tea is borne by common man of this country and not by the affluent tax-payers. After all, they are the servants of the people and the people have a moral duty to feed them well !!

And also consider as to how many MPS attend only for that cheap prices when Parliament is not in sessions. Consider that even security staff, who watch protection day and night without rest/ Ministerial staff who are disturbed to provide answers to questions etc atleast will be happy to enjoy with such food during parliament sessions.

even if the parliament is not in session the canteen will be still open and the MP's and their chelas will enjoy their cheap/costly meals instead of going to Andhra bhavan/ gujarati bhavan etc where they charge minimum of 300/-per person. because of this reason our MPs are not aware of price raise and common mans problems

Shri NKR.

Come on Sir, Be practical. Only for the sake of food when entire parliament session days for a term of 5 years is less than 365 days, MPS visit canteen from their constituencies ?

Have you seen MP paying his bill himself in any restaurant any where outside ?

They are not in a position to repay electricity bills and other expenses at New Delhi inspite of reminders for years.

Don't know, if some one decide that MPs are contesting in Elections for availing subsidized food at Parliament Canteen at New Delhi

They have to purchase seven things during election for voters. Let them have even atleast this food subsidy. Leave those food problems alone and ask them what they have done or going to do for people.

sir , you are side tracking the issue, my greivence is that when they are having that much subsidised eatables in the canteen whil getting fat pay whether they take one day , two days or ten days in the canteen is not my issue why cant it be extended to all the canteens they are opening for public like anna canteen, amma canteen etc. austerity should start at home which our MP's are not following who dont pay any bills but want everything free .

New Delhi, June 23: The "Give it up" slogan was apparently coined by none other than the Prime Minister. But, it has now been confirmed, he forgot to look closer home.

Yes, quite a mouthful of subsidy is being served up in the canteen of the biggest house of them all - Parliament.

A right to information plea has revealed that the government faced losses of around Rs 14 crore in 2013-2014 because of subsidy at the four Parliament canteens.

The low prices at which MPs and other designated persons can feed themselves have not been revised since 2010 by the authorised committee.

Which means the rates continue to be in place even while Narendra Modi and his ministers are exhorting the rest of the better-off Indians to give up the cooking gas subsidy and be model citizens.

It also means that an MP can have a full-course lunch, complete with dessert, at the Parliament canteens for Rs 38.

Journalists, babus also enjoy subsidised meal in Parliament canteen: Government

 

How much a plate of chicken biryani costs in national capital Delhi? Rs 51 - only if you are a Member of Parliament. Parliament canteens received a total subsidy of Rs 60.7 crore over the last five years, an RTI reply has revealed. However, the government says it is wrong to blame only the lawmakers for enjoying sumptuous meals at highly subsidised rates.

A day after an RTI query revealed that parliamentarians continue to enjoy food in Parliament canteens at ridiculously low rates, the government on Wednesday said it is wrong to blame the MPs only. Minister of state (independent charge) of skill development and entrepreneurship Rajiv Pratap Rudy said that the government is also against the subsidy being offered in Parliament canteens.

Dear Editor,

 

It refers to shocking RTI response revealing that certain food-items like stew-vegetables at Parliament canteens are sold even at just one-tenth of cost of raw-materials used (sale-price rupees 4 against raw-material cost of rupees 41.25) in preparing these with preparation-cost, staff-salary and other overheads not included in such cost. It accounted for a heavy subsidy of rupees 14 crores accounted to budget-grant for Lok Sabha Secretariat for fiscal-year 2013-14. Only chapati priced at rupee one has raw-material cost of just 77 paise below the sale-price. Why not provide chapatti free-of-cost to eliminate the only exception for benefit of our law-makers who through their own constituted committee decide burdening public-exchequer funded by tax-payers’ hard-earned money for such undeserving subsidy for themselves in Parliament-canteens.

SHIMLA: At a time when Narendra Modi-led NDA government is requesting the well-heeled families across India to give up LPG subsidy, ex-CM and BJP MP from Kangra Shanta Kumar has requested Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan to scrap the food subsidy in Parliament canteens.

 

"MPs are lakhpatis (millionaires) and are able to bear the expense of their food. There is no reason for giving subsidy on food; it is unwanted and illogical," he has written. Since coming to power, the NDA government has been taking steps to cut subsidies. However, in Parliament, the government continues to offer substantial subsidy on food.Read more at;

Under fire for gorging on cheap food at the Parliament House canteen, many MPs feel the subsidy being given can be done away with as it was only creating a "bad press".

An RTI query had recently revealed that the government faced a loss of around Rs.14 crore (over $2 million) in 2013-14 because of subsidy at the more than half-a-dozen canteens in the parliament complex.

All threads on subsidy in Parliament canteen have been merged into one single thread.

@MANOJ B. PATEL

 

You are once again starting a new thread for existing topics.

As it is, Moderators are having a tough time with spammers.

 

If long standing members like you also increase the workload of Moderators it is blatantly U-N-F-A-I-R !

 

Surprisingly, you are starting threads on the same subject/topic ON WHICH YOU YOURSELF started the earlier thread OR made several posts in the existing threads.

 

So why start a new thread ?

 

We are all here on a voluntary basis (ie do not get paid). We all spend our valuable time , effort and in some cases - our own pocket money to run this portal.

 

Please remember that before you start a duplicate thread (or a new thread on the same topic/subject) next time.

[h=1]PM asked us to forgo LPG subsidy, let’s ask him & all MPs to forgo their 60 crore canteen subsidy![/h]In June 2015, a RTI application revealed that in 2013-14, the Indian government faced a loss of around 14 crore ( over $2 million) – all to the numerous canteens in the parliament complex. This subsidy has in place since 1952 and the facilities are availed of by the Rajya Sabha secretariat, the Lok Sabha secretariat and the media.

The RTI revealed more details about the amount of subsidy for each of the dishes. The crisp fish fry with chips comes at Rs 25 – subsidised by 63 percent, mutton curry at Rs 20 – subsidised by 67 percent, mutton cutlet at Rs 18 – subsidised by 65 percent, a crunchy masala dosa at 6 and boiled vegetables for as little as Rs 5 – both subsidized by 75 percent!

The RTI reply states that the canteens received a subsidy of Rs 10.4 crore, 11.7 crore, 11.9 crore, 12.5 crore and 14 crore in 2009-10, 2010-11, 2012-13, 2013-14 respectively, totaling around Rs 60.7 crore.

Biju Janata Dal (BJD) leader Jay Panda on Friday said the time has come in our country to recognise that the subsidies should be kept only for the really deserving citizens, that is, the poorest of the poor.

 

"I think time has come in our country to recognise that subsidies should be kept only for the really deserving citizens, the poorest of the poor. You can see many changes happening, for example, the government has been encouraging for the last one year for people to voluntarily give up their LPG cooking gas subsidy," he told ANI.

 

Panda further said that a lot of people have responded from the middle class and those who can afford it have voluntarily given up.

 

"I think around ten lakh citizens have given this up including many MPs and politicians. In this kind of an atmosphere, I think it is an anomaly to continue to have subsidised food for parliamentarians," he added.

 

Panda gave up his subsidy after revelations that MPs dine in Parliament at highly subsidised rates.

 

Panda also took to twitter and said that he had written to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan giving up the subsidy.

 

An RTI reply last month revealed that the Parliament canteens serving to the Members of Parliament got a total subsidy of Rs 60.7 crore during the last five years with items like 'puri sabji' being sold at 88 per cent subsidised rates. Read more at;
