The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

Non-of­fi­cial mem­bers of the Press Coun­cil of In­dia, which in­cludes mostly jour­nal­ists, have some­thing to cheer about. Their sit­ting charges for a PCI meet­ing have been hiked from ₹ 300 to ₹ 1,000/day, sub­ject to a ceil­ing of ₹ 10,000/month. How­ever, the gov­ern­ment has put a con­di­tion that such non-of­fi­cial mem­bers shall not be em­ployed or draw­ing salary from any in­sti­tu­tion or or­gan­i­sa­tion funded by the gov­ern­ment.
