New Delhi: All subsidy given on food to Parliamentarians in both the Houses came to an end with immediate effect on Thursday (December 5, 2109), said Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla. With this, the food will be available at regular prices that are prevalent in the market.
The decision was taken during a meeting of the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) attended by Members of Parliament (MPs) from different parties who unanimously agreed to end the subsidy on all food items at Parliament canteen.
