Over Rs 4,000 crore was allocated to various agencies, including Delhi Police, PWD, MCD, DDA, and NHAI, for the summit.

The G20 Summit is a globally significant event, requiring substantial financial resources for its successful execution.
The central government typically plays a crucial role in funding and supporting the logistics and infrastructure for such summits.
States and union territories also contribute resources and collaborate with the Centre for hosting international events like the G20 Summit.
