Mysuru’s Radisson Blu Plaza May Go To Court Over PM Modi’s Rs 80.6 Lakh Unpaid Bill

New Delhi: Radisson Blu Plaza in Mysuru, the hotel where Prime Minister Narendra Modi stayed in April 2023, is considering legal action because his bills of Rs 80.6 lakh have not been paid, The Hindu reported. PM Modi was in Mysuru to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Project Tiger, organized by the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) and the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF).

The State Forest Department was told to organise an event from April 9 to 11, costing Rs 3 crore with full funding from the Central government. However, following urgent instructions from top officials at MoEF and NTCA, the event’s total expense rose to Rs 6.33 crore, added the publication

Despite communications between the State Forest Department and the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Rs 3.33 crore is still pending while the Centre has disbursed Rs 3 crore. According to the publication, the letters between the MoEF and the NTCA show that the event’s initial cost was Rs 3 crore. However, some extra activities were added following the NTCA’s guidelines and the needs of the schedule.

Because of these additions, the event management company handling the event raised its price. The publication added that this new quote was shared with all the officials in a video conference.

The Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) to the NTC initially raised the issue in New Delhi on September 29, 2023. The NTCA later responded in February 2024, stating that the state government should cover these expenses. However, the publication reported that despite subsequent reminders from the new Principal Chief Conservator in March 2024 and the hotel’s finance manager in May 2024, the Rs 80.6 lakh bill remains unsettled.
