New Delhi, May 3: Members of Parliament (MPs) who are awaiting for the nod from PMO for a pay hike in their salary, may have to wait bit long as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is reportedly against the lawmakers' decision by own for a 100% hike.

The MPs have recommended a cent per cent hike in their salaries and allowances which is now awaiting PMO's nod.

A parliamentary committee has suggested that the MPs' salaries be raised from Rs 50,000 a month to a lakh and the constituency allowance from Rs 45,000 to Rs 90,000. The Centre needs to spend more than Rs250 crore annually if the salary hike recommendation gets PMO's nod.
