Salary and allowances of Delhi MLAs will a whopping two-and-half fold increase from the current Rs 88,000 per month to Rs 2.10 lakh, if the recommendations of the three member expert panel are accepted by the government. The report submitted to the Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel, has favoured a 400 percent hike in basic salary of MLAs from Rs 12,000 to Rs 50,000 per month. The three-member committee is chaired by former Secretary General of Lok Sabha PDT Achary.
"The committee has recommended to increase the existing salary of MLAs from Rs 12,000 per month to Rs 50,000 per month. Also, total salary and allowances of MLAs have been recommended to be enhanced from the present Rs 88,000 per month to Rs 2.10 lakh per month," Achary told reporters.
The committee has recommended the hiking of constituency allowance from the current Rs 18,000 to Rs 50,000, stating that the current amount is "grossly" inadequate.

'Office rental and related utilities' allowance of Rs 25,000 has been recommended for meeting the expenditure on office space and other essential amenities.
AAP formed with a message of simplicity and transparency has already showed the real colour of dictatorial stints by suppressing the descendants and throwing them out of the party. Now that the so called Aam Admi’s party is going for a huge monetary benefits for its lawmakers by using the money of tax paying Aam Admis. This shows that AAP does not have any difference, but the ultimate aim is to loot the state exchequer.
