The Delhi assembly on Monday passed a Bill to increase the salary and allowances of MLAs, taking up the legislation on the first day of its two-day Monsoon session.

Kailash Gahlot, Law, Justice and Legislative Affairs Minister in the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, tabled the Bill seeking an increase of 66 per cent in the salary and allowances of ministers, MLAs, chief whip, Speaker, deputy Speaker and the Leader of Opposition.


Delhi MLAs’ salary was last revised in 2011. In 2015, the Delhi government proposed Rs 2.10 lakh a month as salary and allowances for the MLAs, but the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) refused the proposal.

According to ANI report in May, Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel requested the MHA to compare the salaries with other state MLAs as he claimed many states are getting around Rs 2 lakh as the total amount.
