A statement from Lok Sabha secretariat on Thursday said Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has decided that the canteen in Parliament will work on ‘no-profit, no-loss’ basis from January 1.

In the recent past, there have been much controversy over the highly subsidized food prices in the parliament canteen.

An RTI query had revealed that Parliament canteen facility got a total subsidy of Rs 60.7 crore during the last five years.

The Logical Indian Community applauds this positive move! We always demanded that our Parliamentarians must be subjected to the same prices as the rest of the nation. It was unreasonable that the canteen prices have changed only twice since Independence when the rest of us face changes in food products on almost a monthly basis.
