Delhi government on December 3, 2015 approved a 400 per cent hike in their salary. Delhi MLAs accepted the recommendation which was made by an independent committee. The proposed payout was of Rs 2.35 lakh to each MLA against the current Rs 88,000.
BJP MLAs revolted the idea of increment saying that it wasn't the right time to take an increment. Vijender Gupta said, "We will abstain from voting for this bill because we do not think this is the right time for it. Even if you have to introduce it, the increment needs to lowered."
