UFESM expected a date for implementation of OROP – Relay hunger strike continues

UFESM expected a date for implementation of OROP – Relay hunger strike continues

Government committed to implement ‘One Rank One Pension': Manohar Parrikar to ex-servicemen
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has conveyed the NDA government’s “unequivocal commitment” in implementing ‘One Rank One Pension’ (OROP) when a delegation of ex-servicemen, who are on a strike for past 19 days pressing for its execution, met him.

Not happy with Parrikar’s assurance, the agitating ex-servicemen said the question of ending the protest does not arise without a government announcement on implementing the long-pending demand.

“A six member delegation of United Front of Ex-Servicemen (UFESM) met the Defence Minister last night. Parrikar conveyed unequivocal commitment of the party (BJP)and the government towards implementation of OROP,” said Col (retd) Anil Kaul, spokesman of the Front.

He said Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag was also present at the meeting.

MPs’ 100 per cent salary hike - Government’s final call

MPs’ 100 per cent salary hike - Government’s final call

New Delhi: BJP today sought to distance itself from a parliamentary panel’s recommendation for a 100 per cent hike in MPs’ salary besides a number of perks, saying it was for the government to take a call on it.

“We have nothing to say. It is our government at the Centre and the panel is headed by a senior member of our party. But the Centre has apparently put the report in cold storage. It is finally for the government to take a call on it,” a party leader said.

The fact that the parliamentary panel is headed by BJP MP Yogi Aditynanath has forced the party to maintain a distance.

The panel has pitched for 100 per cent hike in salary and daily allowances of MPs and 75 per cent raise in pension of ex-MPs apart from facilities for their “companions” in place of “spouses”.

In far-reaching recommendations, it also has sought the doubling of the existing Rs 50,000 salary of MPs and favoured increasing the pension of former parliamentarians from Rs 20,000 to Rs 35,000.

While the government has expressed its readiness to consider their demand for a hike in salary, constituency and office allowances and raising the expenditure limit on furniture, it is not in favour of the other recommendations, official sources said.

The panel is likely to meet on July 13 and prepare a final report taking into account the government’s stand.

Parliament panel wants doubling of pay, automatic pay revision mechanism for MPs

“Pay revision mechanism for parliamentarians like that of pay commission for government employees : The Committee has proposed that an automatic pay revision mechanism for parliamentarians like that of pay commission for government employees.”


Parliament panel wants doubling of pay, automatic pay revision mechanism for MPs
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.
