Himachal will not bear financial burden on Right to Food Security Act

On the issue of proposed Right to Food Security Act Himachal Pradesh Government did not oppose the bill, but refused to implement it on its own as it will be a financial liability on them.

Chief Minister said that Himachal had already conveyed its views on the proposed Act to the Centre. “As long as the Centre ensures that the entire expenditure on the implementation of the scheme is borne by it, we have no problem, but there should be no financial burden on us.”

The News Himachal seeks to cover the entire demographic of the state, going from grass root panchayati level institutions to top echelons of the state. Our website hopes to be a source not just for news, but also a resource and a gateway for happenings in Himachal.
