Governors’ allowances revised

Four months after increasing their salaries to Rs. 3.5 lakh, the Centre has issued fresh guidelines for allowances to the Governors for tours, hospitality, entertainment and furnishings. The allowances have been revised after four years. The State governments pay the Governors salaries and allowances.

According to a notification by the Home Ministry last week, the West Bengal Governor will get the highest amount of Rs. 1.81 crore in allowances for tour, hospitality and entertainment.
