The worth of Late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's funeral cost taxpayers comes out to be Rs 30 crore, and has come in at a third of the Rs 84 crore figure bandied around by her left wing enemies.
The Iron Lady’s ceremonial send-off was calculated by Cabinet Office officials at St Paul’s. An additional Rs 8.4 crore was used up on paying the 4,000 cops involved, but many of them would have been at work.
