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
