KCR Showers Boons On MLAs

The MLAs and MLCs in Telangana are in for a pleasant surprise with the Telangana government deciding to increase their salary by 300 per cent. Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who was very keen on hiking the legislators' salary, gave the approval to the decision.

The amenities committee of the State Assembly, which met at the Committee Hall on Monday, recommended that the salaries of the MLAs and MLCs from Rs 1.25 lakh to Rs 3.5 lakh per month.

Ministers T Harish Rao and E Rajender, floor leaders of all parties, Assembly Speaker S Madhusudhana Chary and Council chairman Swamy Goud endorsed the proposal.

The committee also recommended a hefty increase in the vehicle loan from Rs 15 lakh to Rs 40 lakh. The amenities committee suggested hike in pension for the MLAs and MLCs. It was hiked from Rs 50,000 to Rs 65,000 per month.

The medical assistance to the legislators would be made limitless. The beneficiaries of the pay hike include ex-legislators and widows of former law-makers. This would result in over Rs 100 crore additional burden on the exchequer.
