Union ministers will now require the prime minister’s prior approval before proceeding on official foreign tours and they will also have to keep the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) informed even about their private foreign travel.
“Proposal relating to official visits abroad of central ministers (cabinet ministers, ministers of state holding independent charge), ministers of state or deputy ministers, require prior approval of the prime minister,” an office memorandum issued by the Cabinet Secretariat says.
According to the letter, prior political and FCRA (Foreign Contribution Regulation Act) approval will be needed for private visits by the minister during non-parliament session days, while the prime minister’s approval will be needed when the session is on.
