Just 1 year and 2 months after she took oath as 12th President of India and first woman President, she enjoyed her second perk financially on Thursday, Sep 11. President and Vice-President's salary was hiked to Rs 1 lakh and Rs 85,000 per month.

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs on Thursday, Sep 11 approved a proposal to raise the monthly emoluments of the President of India to Rs 1.50 lakh and the Vice-President to Rs 1.25 lakh. The salary of the Governors of the States has been enhanced to Rs 1.10 lakh, an offical anouncement said.

The hike comes close on the heels of Government announcing a bonanza for its employees by implementing the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission report under which a secretary at the Centre will draw Rs 80,000 a month.

Immediately after the hike was announced, President Pratibha Devi Singh Patil contributed a month's salary to the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund, towards the relief and rehabilitation of those affected by Bihar floods.
