Members of Parliament unanimously decide to end the subsides provided to them at Parliament Canteen. The decision was taken after the suggestion by Speaker of Lok Sabha Om Birla.

Prior to this decision food at Parliament Canteen was sold at prices much lower than the market rate. The cost of the subsidy to the MPs in Parliament canteen was Rs 17 crore.

In January 2015, the rates of the food items sold at Parliament was hiked. The then speaker Sumitra Mahajan told the food rate at parliament was hiked due to growing controversies from time to time about the subsidized food being sold at Parliament when there is inflation in the open market. However, even after the hike the price was much lower as compared to the open market.

Today, after Speaker Om Birla mooted a suggestion about doing away with the subsidised rate of food at Parliament Canteen, a meeting of the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) took place. MPs from different party were present in the meeting and they unanimously took a decision to do away with subsidised rate of food at the Parliament canteen. Now the food at Parliament will be sold at price as per the regular market. After this decision, once the practice to provide subsidised food at the Parliament canteen stops, the savings could be around 17 crores anually.
