Govt seeks Parl nod for additional Rs 7,500 cr spending

New Delhi: The government on Friday sought Parliament’s approval to spend an additional Rs 7,500 crore including Rs 1,000 crore for setting up of ‘Nirbhaya Fund’ for safety of women and a similar amount for women’s bank.

The first batch of supplementary demands for grants for 2013-14 involving an additional expenditure of Rs 7,499.42 crore was tabled in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.

Besides, Rs 1,000 crore has been provided for initial capital for establishment of women’s bank.
