Election Commission fixed rates for campaign material and other items for Lok Sabha election campaign.
The bugle of Lok Sabha elections has been sounded. Those who have got the tickets have fielded their teams openly, while Netaji, who is waiting for the tickets, has kept the team on alert mode.
If you want to campaign for elections, you need supporters and you will also have to spend on them. In such a situation, Netaji has also started opening his pockets. If the code of conduct has not been implemented yet, there is no fear of the election expenditure meter being started. However, the district administration has fixed the prices of campaign material and food items used in the election campaign even before the election bugle sounds.
After the implementation of the code of conduct, candidates will have to pay a tea of Rs 10 and a samosa of Rs 12. Netaji will spend the money and the election machinery will keep the accounts. So that it can be assessed whether Netaji is going beyond the limit in expenditure. This list was prepared with great effort by the election expenditure team and all the parties have also given their consent to it.
District Election Officer/District Magistrate Sonika has fixed the prices of a total of 78 items/materials after discussions with various candidates and political parties. Its list has also been released. These rates are almost the same as in the last assembly elections, but there has been a significant increase in the vehicle expenditure.

Apart from this, fares for various vehicles have also been fixed.
