Outsiders at meetings to claim attendance allowance

Outsiders are attending the progress review meetings of the highways ministry in order to claim the Rs. 4,000 attendance allowance.

These meetings should be attended only by top level officials, but it has now become normal for representatives of various divisions to attend.

Sometimes, more than 100 officials are in attendance.

Also, these meetings should take place every three weeks, but are held every month now.
