Madhya Pradesh Ministers to Pay Tax on their Salaries and Allowances Madhya Pradesh 3 min read

The Madhya Pradesh cabinet, in a meeting held in Bhopal on 25 June 2024 and presided over by Chief Minister Mohan Yadav, decided that the state ministers would have to pay Income tax on their salaries and allowances received as ministers from their own pockets. 

The proposal tabled at the state government’s cabinet meeting was approved unanimously. 

In 1972, the Madhya Pradesh government decided that the IncomeTax Act 1961 on the salaries and allowances of the ministers would be paid by the state government, and there would be no burden on the individual ministers. 

The state government took this decision under the Income Tax Act 1961 provisions.

Thus, after 52 years, the state government has changed the rules.
