Pay hike for MPs soon

Parliament27Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs has proposed a commission chaired by
the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs M Venkaiah Naidu to recommend
salaries and allowances for MPs. The panel will put to rest the public
outcry and media criticism over MPs deciding their salaries and will
also provide an opportunity to consider responsibilities and role they
play in democracy. It would ensure recommendations are reached in a
transparent and equitable way. After consensus is reached on the
commission, salary, allowances and pension of MPs Act,1954 will be
amended. Last revision was made in 2010 and MPs presently get a basic
salary of Rest 50,000 per month. Delegates will also discuss the
utility and shortcomings of the MPLADS (Members of Parliament Local
Area Development Scheme) in the light of its implementation over the
last 32 years and make suggestions and recommendations.
