Sansad Rasoi initiative

  • The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has appreciated the initiative of Sansad Rasoi in Tonk, Sawai Madhopur Rajasthan..
  • The Sansad Rasoi initiative is a scheme launched by the Indian government in 2019 to provide subsidized meals to Members of Parliament (MPs) and their guests at the Parliament House canteen. The initiative aims to ensure that MPs and their guests have access to affordable and nutritious meals while they are at the Parliament House.
  • Under the scheme, the Parliament House canteen serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner to MPs and their guests at highly subsidized rates. The prices of the meals are fixed and are much lower than the market rates for similar meals.
  • The Sansad Rasoi initiative was launched to reduce the cost of running the Parliament House canteen and to make it more efficient. The initiative has been successful in achieving these objectives, and it has also helped to promote a sense of community among MPs by providing a common space for them to share meals.
  • However, the initiative has also faced criticism for providing subsidized meals to MPs at a time when many people in India are struggling to access basic food and nutrition. Some critics have argued that the resources used to subsidize the meals for MPs could be better utilized to address hunger and malnutrition in the country.
  • Despite these criticisms, the Sansad Rasoi initiative continues to operate and provide subsidized meals to MPs and their guests at the Parliament House canteen.
