Govt approves amendment to Members of Parliament Rules 1988

The Union Cabinet today gave its approval by accepting the recommendation of the Joint Committee that a Member of Parliament will be allowed to engage any number of persons either in Delhi or in his constituency for obtaining secretarial assistance.

New Delhi, May 3 : The Union Cabinet today gave its approval by accepting the recommendation of the Joint Committee that a Member of Parliament will be allowed to engage any number of persons either in Delhi or in his constituency for obtaining secretarial assistance.

They can obtain secretarial assistance within the total monetary ceiling of 14 thousand rupees per month and out of them at least one person should be computer literate and the certification by the Member about the computer literacy of such person would suffice.

The Cabinet also gave its approval for making consequential amendments in the Members of Parliament (Office Expense Allowance) Rules 1988.

The amendment would give required flexibility to the MPs in obtaining secretarial assistance.

At its weekly meeting here tonight, the Cabinet also approved for moving the official amendments to the Constitution (One Hundred and Third Amendment) Bill, 2004 and the National Commission for Minorities (Repeal) Bill, 2004, in Parliament for consideration and passage.

These amendments would infuse a greater sense of confidence amongst the minorities.
