NEW DELHI (TIP): A parliamentary panel has pitched for 100 per cent hike in salary and daily allowances of MPs and 75 per cent raise in the pension of ex-MPs apart from facilities for their “companions” in place of “spouses”.

In far-reaching recommendations, the panel, headed BJP MP Yogi Adityanath, has sought doubling of the existing Rs 50,000 salary of MPs and favoured increasing the pension of former parliamentarians from Rs 20,000 to Rs 35,000.

The panel has also recommended that the daily allowance of MPs of Rs 2,000 for attending the House during Parliament sessions should be doubled to Rs 4000.

It is learnt that some ex-MPs, who appeared before the panel rued that while they are given a First Class Ticket to travel on train, their companions, even if it is the spouse, can travel only second class.
