Subject - Deduction of arrear electric charges from the salary to the M.L.As. under the Orissa M.L.As. Salary and Allowances (Deduction of House Rent, etc.) Rules, 1957.
"I am directed to refer to rule 2 of the Orissa Legislative Assembly Members' Salary and Allowances (Deduction of House Rent etc.) Rules, 1957 which provides for the deduction of entire array house rent, electric charges, etc. from the salary and T.A. Bills of the M.L.As., at a time. As deduction of entire arrear electric charges at a time shall cause hardship to the M.L.As. Government have been pleased to allow, in relaxation of rule 2 of the said Rules the M.L.As., who are continuing as members of the Orissa Legislative Assembly constituted after the General Elections to pay up such arrears in instalments not exceeding Rs.50, and not less than Rs.25, a month. I am to request you, therefore, to make deductions from the salary bills of such M.L.As., who are in arrears in respect of payment of electric charges for occupying quarters at New Capital accordingly.
2. The Accountant-General, Orissa and the Works Department are being informed of this order."
