Parliament panel wants doubling of pay, automatic pay revision mechanism for MPs
A parliamentary panel has recommended doubling the salary of law makers and also increasing pension of former MPs by almost 75%. The joint committee, which has submitted its recommendations to the government, has also proposed an automatic pay revision mechanism for parliamentarians like that of pay commission for government employees.
Sources said the panel has made a total of around 60 recommendations. “The committee has reasoned that the last revision of MPs salary happened in 2010 and they don’t get any dearness allowance like that of government employees,” said a government source.
At present, sitting MPs get monthly salary of Rs 50,000. The panel has also recommended that the daily allowance of Rs 2,000, which they get for attending the House during Parliament sessions should be increased substantially, sources said.
“The hike is overdue. Our daily expenses only for offering tea to visitors come to around Rs 1,000. Can we stop showing this little courtesy to electorates?” asked a sitting BJP lawmaker.
