The Salary of an MLA.We have different States in our country and each State is having an Assembly. An MLA will be a member in the Assembly and represents there his constituency. These MLAs will be getting Salaries every month like any other employee of the government. In addition to the salary, they will get other benefits. All these days I am of the opinion that all MLAs in India will get the same salary. But today I have seen a news item in which they have given the salary of an MLA in each State. There a very big difference in these salaries.
An MLA from Tripura is the lowest paid and he will be getting Rs.17,500/- a month. The highest paid MLA is from Telangana and he will be getting Rs.2,50,000/- a month. All MLAs of a state will get the same salary. An MLA from AP will be getting Rs.1,25,000/- Why so much variation in the salaries from State to State. Why not the Central government can fix a common salary to MLAs of all the States?
