People Hail Adityanath’s Move To Scrap 40YO Law Of Using Taxpayers’ Money To Pay Ministers’ Taxes

In UP, a law has been in existence for the last 4 decades which ensures that the state ministers do not pay their taxes since the state exchequer takes care of this.

However, according to the latest report, the UP government has decided to do away with this law.

It has been decided that ministers will start paying their own income tax from now.

Uttar Pradesh Ministers’ Salaries, Allowances and Miscellaneous Act which was put into practice in 1981 ensured that the taxes to be paid by ministers are shelled out from the state treasury.

Back then, it was argued that the state government should bear the income tax burden as most ministers were from poor backgrounds and had meagre income.

The state government paid ₹86 lakh as the ministers’ tax bill for the last financial year.

Putting an end to this obsolete law will help the state government save a lot of money.

The people are celebrating this development (not the ministers but common man obviously). See below what people are saying about this:
