The Union Cabinet headed by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given its nod to the revision in the salaries, gratuity, allowances and pension etc. of the Judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts. The Judges will too be able to get the benefit of salary hike as per the 7th Central Pay Commission.  

Union Law Minister Sri Ravi Shankar Prasad aid here that a bill would be introduced in Parliament to effect the pay hike.

The then Chief Justice of India T S Thakur had written to the government in 2016 seeking a hike in salaries of Supreme Court and high court judges.

A Supreme Court judge at present gets Rs 1.5 lakh a month in hand after all deductions from salary and allowances. The CJI gets a higher amount than this, while the judges of the high courts get a lesser amount. Rent-free accommodation is provided to the judges while they are in service.

After the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, the matter was already under the consideration of the government. [Inputs TOI]
