West Bengal hiked ministers' allowances

The debt trapped WB Govt. has substantially increased the allowance of ministers. In the left regime, Cabinet Ministers were entitled to a consolidated allowance of Rs 7500 per month. In addition they were paid Rs 225 and Rs 300 per day for tour inside state and outside state respectively.
The new allowance is fixed as daily basis - Rs 1000 per day irrespective of any tour or work in office. It is effected from 1st September 2011.  As the assembly is not in motion, the hike has been effected by an ordinance, perhaps to do it silently without much uproar. It is significant that the miserable economic condition of the state treasury did not make any constraint to increase the take home pay of the people's representatives unlike the employees. The deprived employees, lagging 23% behind in D.A with respect to their counterparts in central and neighboring states may console there selves  as at least their bosses are well paid now.
