No 400 per cent salary hike for Delhi MLAs as Centre returns the bill

The Centre has returned a bill moved by the Delhi government for a salary hike up to 400 per cent for employees apart from an increase in perks and allowances.

Returning the bill for the second time, the ministry has asked for more clarifications regarding the provisions included in the bill.

In the past, Kejriwal government has accused the Centre of deliberately procrastinating bills.

The Member of Legislative Assembly of NCT of Delhi (salaries, allowances, pension etc) Amendment Bill - has been sent back to Delhi government, say MHA sources.

According to reports, ministry objected to the proposed jump in salary and allowances of the Delhi MLAs, saying the burden on exchequer would not be commensurate to the revenues of Delhi government, besides any other state government has not been given such a hike.

The bill proposes an increase in the basic salary from current Rs 12,000 to Rs 50,000 and the overall monthly package to scale up to Rs 2.1 lakh as against the existing Rs 88,000.

Last year, the ministry had asked Kejriwal government to present the calculations undertaken to arrive at such figures.
