The Office of Prime Minister and Council of Ministers’ Secretariat is preparing to put online the expenses incurred by the ministers in their various visits. The move is said to be aimed at curbing the practice of engaging in numerous official visits to the districts and claiming the expenses running into hundreds of thousands of rupees. Source at the office said that the practice of putting their expenses online would start from January 2. “Expenses incurred by all the ministers in their visits in the first five months of the current fiscal year till mid-Poush will soon be made public,” said the source. The PMO planned this concept after the code of ethics for the visits by ministers were flouted. In the first two months Shrawan and Bhadra of the fiscal year, the ministers used up Rs 1.2 million in visits. The figure increased to Rs 4 million after Bhadra and till mid-Poush.
