Madhya Pradesh Government Nods to Hike MLAs’ Salary, Allowance

Madhya Pradesh Government Nods to Hike MLAs’ Salary, Allowance

MLAs in Madhya Pradesh are set to become richer with the BJP-led state government giving a nod to hike their salary and allowance.

The decision was taken today at the state cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
The government gave a go-ahead for the rise in the salary and perks of members of the MP Assembly after a gap of six years.

The Bill to this effect is expected to be tabled tomorrow during the ongoing budget session of the House for clearance, which is going to be a mere formality, as the MLAs from all parties want the hike, a senior state minister said.

With the development, the salaries and allowances of MLAs will go up to Rs 1.10 lakh from the present Rs 71,000.

Besides, Chief Minister and the Speaker’s salary will increase to Rs 2 lakh from Rs 1.43 lakh and to Rs 1.85 lakh from Rs 1.20 lakh respectively.

Likewise, ministers’ pay and perk will increase to Rs 1.70 lakh from the current Rs 1.20 lakh.
The ministers of state will get Rs 1.50 lakh from the present Rs 1.03 lakh.

An opposition Congress MLA preferring anonymity said they too needed the hike “desperately” because of soaring inflation.
