PIL wants Himachal MLAs to pay income tax, not state (The Tribune: March 28, 2022) Empty PIL wants Himachal MLAs to pay income tax, not state (The Tribune: March 28, 2022)

The Himachal Pradesh High Court today issued a notice to the state government on a petition seeking to restrain it from paying income tax on behalf of ministers and MLAs. ................

It is claimed income tax to the tune of Rs 1,11,87,863 was paid by the state on behalf of ministers and MLAs in 2017-18, Rs 1,79,30,873 in 2018-19 and Rs 1,78,12,311 in 2019-20. The petition claims as per a report, the state had a total loan of Rs 54,299 crore in 2018-19. The petitioners contend shifting the liability of the payment of income tax of ministers and MLAs on the government and consequently on the people’s money is “unconstitutional” .............

The petitioners further claim only six states have been bearing this burden. These are Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh. In the rest of the states, the legislators pay their own income tax, they claim, urging the court to quash the said provision.
