Four-decade-old rule scrapped, Uttar Pradesh ministers to pay their income tax

Uttar Pradesh government on September 13 asked  ministers to start paying their own income tax, ending a  four-decade-old practice of the state exchequer shelling  out the amount annually for them.
The direction came after criticism in the media of a law  enacted in 1981 which ensures that the state's chief  minister and ministers do not pay any income tax 
themselves.
