Punjab okays new Bill on office of profit

The Punjab Cabinet led by Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday paved the way for the enactment of the law to enable MLAs to hold several new categories of office of profit.

The new law- The Punjab State Legislature (Prevention of Disqualification) (Amendment) Bill, 2018- will be tabled in the forthcoming session of Punjab Vidhan Sabha.

With the amendments proposed in the Bill, various categories of office of profit will be added to the current list of positions and offices which MLAs can hold without inviting disqualification.

The government said, the amendments aimed at addressing the complexities of modern-day governance, include incorporation of a new Section to provide for the definitions of compensatory allowance, statutory and non-statutory body.
