Cabinet approves bill to hike MPs' basic salary to Rs 50,000/-, they want more salary; force adjournments in Lok Sabha

Salaries of MPs will be hiked by more than three times with the Union Cabinet today approving a bill over which differences among ministers had surfaced earlier this week.
A meeting of the Cabinet gave its nod to the bill under which the basic salary of the MPs will be hiked from Rs 16,000 to Rs 50,000 per month.

However, this is much less than the figure of Rs 80,001 recommended by the parliamentary committee which had said the MPs should get more than government secretaries as the former are above them in the hierarchy.
The Cabinet also approved increase in office expenses of parliamentarians from Rs 20,000 to Rs 40,000 per month. The constituency allowance has also been doubled from Rs 20,000 to Rs 40,000 per month, government sources said.

Govt today faced protests in the LS, hours after it decided to raise MPs' salary to Rs 50,000 with several non-BJP opposition members storming the well demanding that it be raised to Rs 80,001. "Stop the insult of MPs" and "implement report of the parliamentary committee" were slogans chanted by MPs forcing Speaker Meira Kumar to adjourn the LS twice.

I am not against the salary hike to MPs' but the way in which they hiked the salary is really shameful.The court has also increased the salary to many fold in the same way and directed the govt. to comply with the order...MPs are the elected representatives...they are not bothered about general people...why the Gratuity was notified from 26.05.2010 instead of 01.01.2006 to pvt sector employees and not like central govt employees...why not pay commission to these persons...why the govt is not allowing pension option to voluntary retired in banks even after serving 30years...why not the minimum educational qualification for the MPs and MLAs...why not the age of retirement...have any one gone about perks to these persons which are multi fold to their pay...have any one thought about the prevailing corruption from top to bottom...There is no space to honest person in this world and they have to live under corrupt idiots many a times...All these are the issues for which a conscious thought is to be given..We all have forgotten the Gandhiji's principle and way of living and running in making money in mad race of life which is the root cause of all evils...
