UPA government has spent around Rs 676 crore on ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s overseas tours from May 2004 to March 2013. This has been revealed in a reply to an RTI filed by an activist. 

According to the reply, Manmohan has visited as many as 36 countries during his tenure and his last tour was to South Africa which did cost Rs 10,94,79,000.
However, the same activist also sought current Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s expenses on foreign tours too, but the PMO declined to provide information. So far Modi has visited 14 nations in last 11 months and he will be visiting China, Russia and Turkey in the next few months.

The Prime Minister has made 48 domestic tools since May 2014 out of which 19 were non-official.
