Delhi Cabinet approves Centre s proposal for hike in MLAs salary
| Wednesday | 4th August, 2021
The proposal for a hike and allowances had been pending with MHA for the last 5 years.
The Delhi govt in a statement said that the Capital's MLAs will continue to be among the lowest-paid MLAs across the country.
The salary of Delhi's MLAs hasn't increased since 2011 and the Delhi government had requested the MHA that the salary of Delhi's MLAs be at par with MLAs of other states, however, the MHA refused to do so, the Delhi government said.
In the neighbouring state of Uttarakhand, an MLA's salary is Rs 1.98 Lakh while in Himachal Pradesh it is 1.9 lakh and in Haryana it is 1.55L, and in Bihar, it is Rs 1.3 lakh.
Congress-ruled Rajasthan gives Rs 1.42 lakh to its MLAs and the YSR Congress government in Telangana gives Rs 2.5 lakh.
