Prime Minister Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony cost Rs.17.60 lakh, RTI activist Subhash Chandra Agrawal said Sunday.

Agrawal said he was told by the Central Public Works Department that the money was spent "on arrangements related to tent, stage, furniture and other related items ... at Rashtrapati Bhawan".

Agrawal said the amount spent was "modest" considering the ceremony was attended by around 4,000 people including foreign dignitaries.
