New Delhi, Jan 14: The Union government which has decided to form a panel to look into the issue of subsidy given to Haj pilgrims says that this time it would come up with effective measures to tackle the issue.
The Supreme Court had in 2012 directed that the subsidy be gradually reduced before being completely phased out in ten years. Government sources tell OneIndia that it is not just the SC order that has made them re-think on the subsidy, but it is also the burden on the exchequer.

The committee will look into the 2012 verdict of the Supreme Court which had ordered gradually reducing and then abolishing Haj subsidy all together.
