Husbands to pay salary for household works ?

 If a proposal mooted by the Women and Child Development Ministry is implemented, husbands could soon be legally mandated to pay a fixed monthly salary to their housewives for doing daily chores. 
In fact, the ministry is currently preparing the draft of the Bill and it could be tabled before the Cabinet soon. 

Women and Child Development Minister Krishna Tirath reportedly said the move is part of government’s efforts aimed at women empowerment. 
Tirath said the government will set a standard for the salary amount to be paid to housewives every month. The minister informed that once the draft Bill is ready, it could be presented before Parliament within six months. 
A senior government official said husbands would be required to deposit 10-20% of their monthly salary in a bank account to be opened in the name of their wife.

Ridiculous move. When entire salary is taken by wife and only nominal amount is kept for himself, where is the question of paying salary?
