Our poor politicians, their miseries and their low profile salaries.A parliamentary panel has recommended doubling the salary of law makers and also increasing pension of former MPs by almost 75%. (haha Great!!) 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.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.
How much they are currently receiving:Each member of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha is entitled to receive a salary of Rs 50,000 per month during the whole term of office. If an MP signs the Parliament register every day, he is entitled to a daily allowance of Rs 2,000.
And look who is heading the panel? :PPanel 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.
There is another recommendation that each sitting MP should get an additional free air conditioned first class railway pass for their companion, such as private secretary. At present, only the MPs and their spouses are entitled for first class AC travel. Moreover, there is a proposal that the MPs should get an amount equal to first class rail ticket, which is informally known as pocket money. Parliamentarians now get allowance equivalent to fare of one second class AC ticket.
Adding extra toppings to it :C , you must be knowing the subsidy they availing in Parliament's canteen.
