Spouses of ministers can now fly at your expense

The state government extended Thursday air travel concessions to wives of ministers. Minister for parliamentary affairs Harshvardhan Patil moved a Bill to the effect. Each minister is entitled to 32 flight coupons for to and fro journeys. Now, their spouses will also get the benefit.

Ministers and spouses can now travel by AC first-class instead of first-class.

In another decision, the government increased salaries of personal assistants to ministers from Rs 8,000 to Rs 15,000.
