Press Statement

New Delhi: October 5,2012

Media reports quoting certain quarters about massive expenses from the Exchequer on UPA Chairperson`s Overseas visits have been brought to the notice of the Prime Minister`s Office.

The reports quoting an expense of Rs. 1880 crore are untrue and misleading.

The Central Information Commissioner has already denied these reports and made a statement.

The Prime Minister`s Office would like to put on record that the Government has incurred no expenses on UPA Chairperson`s visits abroad. Expenses for her security contingent are borne by the Special Protection Group.

During the last 8 years only one trip to Belgium undertaken at the invitation of the Belgian Government to receive a national honour was paid for by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations. The total cost was less than Rs. 3 lakhs.

It is further clarified that the Government has not borne any expenses for UPA Chairperson`s medical treatment abroad and in India.
