Nu.1 MN as vehicle quota to the MPs


May 29, 2014

Nu1 MN as vehicle quota to the MPs. The Pay Commission Report recommends Nu. 1 MN as vehicle quota to the parliamentarians. Each MP receive Nu. 700,000 as vehicle quota as of now.

The Pay Commission says the increase in the amount was felt necessary given the increasing costs of vehicles.

The report also suggests getting rid of more than 1,000 pool vehicles. Instead, it suggests, each of 75 senior officials be provided with Nu. 700,000.


The Pay Commission came up with the suggestion after they found out the pool vehicles being subjected to misuse and viewed as designated vehicles for the senior officers, while the lower level civil servants have limited access.

“Lifting pool vehicles would yield a financial benefit of over Nu. 378 MN,” states the report.

The report says designated vehicles are to be provided only to the Prime Minister, Chief Justice of Bhutan, Cabinet Ministers, Speaker, Chairperson of the National Council, Opposition Leader, Chairperson of Privy Council and Dzongdas.

    What about a tax reduction for citizens waiting to buy vehicles from india or from third countries? Why only MPs. Every citizen pay taxes to govt, that govt pays to MPs, ministers, civil servants and other obligatory recipients in the country. In developed countries, citizens are provided the choice first, then followed by other salary recipients as their salaries are parked are financed from peoples taxes. Very wired in Bhutan; we are poor for that reason as beaucracy remains as the priority of the government and the system. Therefore, I want to work hard to be a member of NA/NC and government.
    Shame on law makers and pay commission members. Think about the country and then about your self internets–drawn from think globally first and then locally.

    Why a big sum of revision for the MPs only??? For the civil servants not even a revision…The quota previously also fetched the same amount, even higher than the amount proposed by the Commission…we are not happy…the civil servants are not happy…

    It seems Bhutan is very rich by now. I wonder where would all these money come from? It is so weird to look at the figure above. I am surprised.
