Parliament panel wants doubling of pay, automatic pay revision mechanism for MPs
NEW DELHI: 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.
TOI has learnt that the panel headed by BJP MP Yogi Adityanath has recommended that former MPs should also be entitled for 20-25 free domestic air travel in a year and increase in pension from Rs 20,000 to Rs 35,000 per month.

They are the "Cancer" to India & People of India. They can do whatever they want as they have already done what they want to do by dividing the people in the name of caste, religion, quota & between own Political parties so that people should not get united & fight against the very very few persons who claim themselves as 'Netas' whereas they are the 'Sevaks' but due to mentality of Indian people they are now 'Rulers'. Now these people then their children, grand children & so on… will rule & Indians will continue to be slaves as they were at the time of British.
Are they not ashamed proposing an increase in their pay and perks when they themselves deny OROP to the ExServiceMen? Shameless are these unproductive lot.
