We Don’t need a Pay Commission – We will Hike it Ourself – Parliamentarians to get 100% Hike

We Don’t need a Pay Commission – We will Hike it Ourself – Parliamentarians to get 100% Hike

The Prime Minister’s Office is learnt to have agreed to consider a recommendation made by the Joint Committee on Salaries and Allowances of Members of Parliament, which is headed by BJP MP Yogi Adityanath. The PMO is believed to have agreed to revise not only Parliamentarians’ salary, but also their allowances.

The basic compensation for a lawmaker will climb from Rs 1,90,000 per month to Rs 2,80,000 per month (salary along with constituency and office staff allowances). The government had last revised MPs’ salary in 2010.

Though Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier was of the view to set up a separate commission for reviewing the salary, instead of MPs themselves, he abandoned it following pressure from the MPs, government sources aware of developments told DH.

The government has also taken a call to increase the President of India’s salary from the existing Rs 1.5 lakh per month to Rs 5 lakh, and governor’s salary to Rs 2.5 lakh per month from existing Rs 1.10 lakh.

The government is planning to bring separate bills in the winter session of Parliament, which is starting from November 16, to give affect to salary hikes for President, governors and MPs. In the same session, the government will also seek Parliament nod to raise the salary of the vice-president, who is also chairman of the Rajya Sabha.

As per the accepted proposal, an MP’s constituency allowance will go up to Rs 90,000 from existing Rs 45,000 every month, the secretarial assistance and office allowance will get a jump from Rs 45,000 to Rs 90,000 per month.

Annual furniture allowance for MP’s official homes will double to Rs 1,50,000 a year and free broadband worth Rs 1,700 per month will be provided at parliamentarians official homes in their constituencies. The monthly pensions for former MPs will also go up from Rs 20,000 to Rs 35,000 per month. Even those who have served for more than five years would get an additional amount in pension – the number of years multiplied by Rs 2,000.

At present, the additional amount is the number of years multiplied by Rs 1,500.

Besides salary, the MPs are also entitled for government accommodation, air travel and train travel facilities, besides three landline telephone connections and two mobile phones. They also get a loan of Rs 4 lakh to buy a vehicle.

Directorate of Estates

 Nirman Bhawan, New Delhi – 110011
Dated the 26th February, 2016

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Licence Fee to be recovered from the allottee of the Government accommodation, who own house(s) at the place of his duties – Reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Directorate’s OM No. 12035/11/99-Pol.II, dated 24.7.2003 (copy enclosed) on the above mentioned subject and to say that as per the provisions of SR – 317-B-3(2) of the Allotment of Government Residences (General Pool in Delhi) Rules, 1963, an allottee, owning a house at the time of allotment either in his own name or in the name of any members of his family at the place of posting or in an adjoining municipality, shall notify the fact to the Directorate of Estates within a period of one month from the date of the house is let out.

2. However, it is noticed from the records received from concerned administrative divisions of Ministries/Departments that declaration of house owning is received only at the time of application for allotment of accommodation, whereas, the same under the provisions SR-317-B-3(3) received is very negligible as compared to allotment made. In order to streamline the already laid down procedure, it is requested that the administrative authority of the concerned Ministries/Departments, etc. to ensure that the provisions Sr-317-B-3(2) as well as 3(3) are followed strictly. In this regard, it is pertinent to mention here that from 1.3.2015 onwards, concerned Ministries/Departments of the applicant for GPRA are advised to ensure that the particulars/details furnished by the applicant in the online DE-2 Form and the Acceptance Form are true and correct. It is thus requested now that the administrative authority of the concerned Ministries/Departments should ensure that the entries made by the applicant in DE-2 Form as well as the Acceptance Form with regard to owning of house, at the time of forwarding the same to this Directorate is as per the latest Immovable Property Return (IPR) filed by the applicant.

3. Further, they should also instruct all allottees in their Ministry/Department to intimate the Directorate of Estates regarding rental income, if any, from the house owned at the time of allotment/acquired after the allotment of Govt. accommodation either in his own name or in the name of any members of his family at the place of posting or in an adjoining municipality, and whenever any change in rental income, which affect the rate of prescribed licence fee as per OM No. 12035/11/99-Pol.II, dated 24.7.2003, so as to levy the prescribed rate of licence fee in this regard, to avoid any loss to Govt. exchequer. In case the details of rental income furnished by any allottee is found false at any later stage, the licence fee of the particular accommodation will be enhanced to the maximum as per OM dated 24.7.2003 w.e.f the date of increase, by the Directorate of Estates suo motu.

Encl: as above.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Review of guidelines on regularization / allotment of alternate accommodation in the name of the eligible spouse / ward of the allottee in the event of death /retirement / transfer of the allottee.

Several instructions have been issued from time to time by this Directorate regarding regularization / allotment of alternate accommodation in the name of eligible spouse / ward of an allottee in the event of death / retirement / transfer of the allottee. It has been observed that some of the provisions contained in these instructions are inconsistent. Further, the rationale behind providing the facility of regularization / allotment of alternate accommodation in the name of the spouse/ward of the deceased/retired/transferred allottee is to avoid dislocation and hardships to the family of the alottee due to such an event. It is, however, felt that imposition of conditions like date of priority should be covered for providing such a facility undermines the very motive behind such a provision and causes undue hardships to the family of the allottee.

2 In view of above, the matter has been reviewed and, in supersession of all previous Orders/OMs issued by this Directorate in the subject. it has now been decided with the approval of the competent authority to consolidate the several instructions issued from time to time in this regard by harmonizing and modifying them as under

regularized/allotted in the name of such a spouse/ward provided the appointment is secured within a period of three years after the death of the allottee and the accommodation in occupation has not been vacated, and

d) A daughter-in-law, working in an eligible office, will also be eligible for regularization/allotment of alternate accommodation.

(ii) In the event of retirement of the allottee, the same accommodation may be regularized in the name of the eligible spouse/ward of the retiring allottee if he/she is entitled for it and, if not, an alternate accommodation of entitled lower type may be allotted to him/her on payment of normal licence fee irrespective of the fact whether the eligible spouse/ward had been residing with the allottee prior to the retirement of the allottee, subject to fulfillment of the following conditions:

a) In case the spouse/ward has been residing continuously with the retiring allottee, he/she has not drawn house rent allowance for this period,

b) Request for regularizatio/allotment of alternate accommodation may be considered in case the spouse/ward of the retiring alottee joins the Government service an an eligible office even after the date of retirement of the allotee, provided he/she joins the Government service within the permissible period of retention and the accommodation in occupation has not been vacated.

(iv) Regularization/allotment of alternate accommodation in the event of death/retirement/transfer of the allottee shall also be subject to the following conditions

b) The application for regularization/allotment should be submitted within the permissible period of retention after the date of death retirement/transfer of the allottee or, in case of death / retirement of the allottee, from the date of appointment of the spouse/ward in Government service, whichever is later:
