Good step by the go nment. Similar steps should be taken by state go nments. Pay packages for govt. servants and public sector employees should also be cut by 20 to 30%.
your view 100% correct . state go nment must follow this
All INDIAN States Legislative Members should ALSO take PAY CUTS OF ATLEAST 35 Percent .The BUREAUCRATES SHOULD ALSO FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE

Waiting for UNESCO to announce this as the best initiative ever since universe was formed.
What MPs are surviving with their salaries?
My request to go nment pls deduct travelling and other expenditure also, as due to locked down situation these expenses are not been borned by them this will be also high savings
What a great leader Modi is. He is keeping us safe and helping the needy also.
PM for all parties and all citizens...
As if their lives are dependent on this payment, this payment may not their children's pocket money
Salaries and pensions for large number of politician is peanut source of Income.
How about not taking any salary? We middle class have nothing left after 2 months, if situation does not improve.
only 30%, some states have took cut upto 60% for MLAs
The cut must be 50%%%
Atleast travel alongwith the public carriers, dont take special aircraft for foriegn travel and domestic travel. You will save a big amount of money. Please try.
president should stop visiting many places in India and that too along with his wife. his travel expenses must be cut by 50%
Politicians make crores under the table.. 30% cut 1 lakh salary is nothing for the.. They laugh we suffer soon.
PM Modi dreamed about $5 trillion dollar but now it seems that Modi govt is running out of funds even for basic health expenses for people. Modi govt already asked money from people.
What will Modi govt do to help people in the upcoming days in fight against corona is the serious question now...
Are we Indian fools? The level of co ption India has, do you think MLAs, MPs and Cabinet lives on Salary?
