The hefty pay hike in the salary of president, vice president and governors come shortly after approximately 25 percent
pay hike of central government employees.

crore annually and the arrears with effect from January 2006 would cost Rs 29,373 crore, Information and Broadcasting

The minimum Basic Pay for a Government servant has been increased to Rs.7000 from Rs.6660 recommended by the

Almost everything that the President does or wants to do is taken care of by the annual Rs 22.5-crore budget that the
Government allots for his upkeep.
