Parliamentarians set for a massive pay hike

MP salaries to double?

Five years after parliamentarians gave themselves more than 300% salary hike, the NDA government seems to be inclined for another steep rise in the lawmakers’ salary.
Sources said the government is considering a proposal to provide MPs a basic salary of Rs 1 lakh per month, a 100% hike from the current Rs 50,000. A proposal of the parliamentary affairs ministry suggests that their constituency allowance and office allowance too—currently Rs 45,000 each— may be doubled.

Ironically, the government, a few months ago, had rejected a parliamentary panel’s proposal to give a 70% hike to the MPs salary. The panel, led by BJP MP Yogi Adityanath, had also demanded a slew of benefits like more air tickets and soft loans for cars.
The proposal also comes amid criticism in the social media about the disruptions and nonfunctioning of Parliament.
Recently, Delhi government gave the MLAs of the national capital a steep hike in salaries and allowances. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had justified the hike and even said that Prime Minister and other MPs too, must get a salary hike.
