Govt mulls salary hike of President, Vice-President, Governors

With the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations creating an anomalous situation in which the salary of the President is Rs 1 lakh less than that of the country’s top-most bureaucrat, the Home Ministry has got down to drafting a proposal for raising the emoluments of the President, Vice President and Governors.

The proposal will be forwarded to the Union Cabinet for its approval soon.

At present, the President gets Rs 1.50 lakh per month, the Vice-President Rs 1.25 lakh and Governor of a state Rs 1.10 lakh.

After the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission’s awards, the Cabinet Secretary, who is the top-most bureaucrat in the country, gets Rs 2.5 lakh per month and a Secretary in the Union Government draws Rs 2.25 lakh per month.
