4,343 crore spent on govt. Publicity


The central government has so far spent 4,343.26 crore Rs. for advertisements and publicity through different media. This has been revealed after an RTI activist has sought information in the matter. However, these figures could have been higher. The government has partially cut down it’s expenses on publicity after receiving severe criticism from the opposition as well as social activists. Interestingly Modi’s government has spent Rs. 953.54 crore in just nine months after entering into the office.
