Comments on: MPs GET SALARY HIKE https://bedtea.in/2010/08/22/mps-get-salary-hike/ Ravi Matah's Blog Wed, 13 Apr 2016 06:16:09 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.1.6 By: hemen parekh https://bedtea.in/2010/08/22/mps-get-salary-hike/comment-page-1/#comment-2481 Tue, 13 Mar 2012 06:31:25 +0000 http://bedtea.in/?p=1075#comment-2481 Declining Productivity

That is how MINT ( Nov. 30, 2011 ) describes the working of the 15th Lok Sabha ( Parliament of India )

PRS Legislative Research defined productivity of Lok Sabha as :

“ Actual duration of sitting “ as a percentage of “ hours available “

They found following percentages :

 8th Lok Sabha ……………………… 111 %

 9th ……………………… 115 %

 10th ………………………. 100 %

 11th …………………………108 %

 12th ………………………… 109 %

 13th ………………………… 91 %

 14th ……………………………..87 %

 15th …………………………….72 %

When our law-makers themselves refuse to “ work “ , whom can we blame for our country’s declining “ work-ethics “ ?

And then by passing laws ( of course , unanimously and without slightest opposition ! ), to increase their own salaries , they are sending out a loud message to the entire nation that, “The less you work , the more you get paid “ !

Poor Members of Indian Parliament recently agitated and got rewarded with hefty increase in their pay and perks.

But how do they stack-up vis-à-vis MPs of other countries ?

Times of India ( Aug.22,2010 ) computed salaries ( including perks ), of MPs of several countries. Then divided these with the per capita GDPs of respective countries.

To ensure an apple-for-apple comparison, salaries were adjusted using $ Purchase Price Parity.

The following picture emerged :

Salary ( + Perks )
——————– =
Per capita GDP

Kenya…………………………………………………………………..180 times

India ( before recent upward revision )……………..104 times

USA…………………………………………………………………………35 times

Pakistan………………………………………………………………….17 times

UK…………………………………………………………………………….9 times

France……………………………………………………………………….8 times

Italy……………………………………………………………………………7 times

Japan………………………………………………………………………….6 times

Singapore……………………………………………………………………4 times

Other countries of Western Europe……less than…..10 times

India’s per capita GDP ( in $ PPP ) is taken at $ 3,176 / year

This hides the fact that nearly 45 % of India’s people ( that should be close to 500 Million ), earn less than $ 0.5 / day as per author Rajesh Shukla ( ” How India Earns, spends and Saves ” )

One can excuse Indian MPs for not knowing such trivial facts when there are important issues such as Babri Masjid – Ram Janmbhoomi which cannot wait !

Our MPs are stuffed up and insufferable
