Last Updated: Friday, October 14, 2011 - 21:04

Thiruvananthapuram: A commission set up by
the Kerala government on revision of pay and allowances of
MLAs has proposed doubling the salary and perks of members of
the state assembly.
Former judge C Rajendra Babu, in his report, recommended
enhancement of pay and allowances from Rs 20,000 to Rs 40,250.
However, the MLAs from districts north of Thrissur would be
entitled for a slightly higher pay, considering the distance
from the state capital.
The Commission proposed increase in various perks,
including the constituency allowance.

The report was submitted to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy
today.
