There are six national parties 53 state parties besides 1,737 Registered/Unrecognised parties in the country, of which, as many as 37 political parties and groups are represented in the 16th Lok Sabha.
“The setting up of an independent Emoluments Commission for recommending the salaries and allowances of the MPs will not only put to rest the public outcry and media criticism over MPs themselves deciding their salaries, it will also provide an appropriate opportunity to take into consideration the huge responsibilities and the important role they play in our representative democracy,” the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs said, in the Agenda Notes for the Whips’ Conference.
