Bengaluru, Feb 25: Though the state exchequer is badly hit due to the coronavirus pandemic, it has not affected the luxurious lifestyle of ministers and MPs of the state.
The state government has considerably increased the car buying allowance of ministers and MPs of the state in the midst of the financial crunch faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
An order to this effect was released by the state government. It has agreed to give Rs 23 lac each to the ministers and MPs to buy cars. Ministers and MPs were pressurizing the state government in this regard for quite some time now. The state government had written a letter in this context to the finance department of the state, which has now been given a green signal.
Earlier, the state government was providing an allowance of Rs 22 lac. Now it is increased by further one lac rupees.
