President of India is the head of the government and the Supreme Commander of the Army, Air Force and Navy. He/she is entitled to get not less than any Central government employee in the country.

But unfortunately, this is not  the present position. While the Cabinet Secretary, Chiefs of Army, Air Force and navy are being paid Rs. 2.5 lakh a month as per the recommendations of the VII Central Pay Commission, the salary of the President continues as only Rs. 1.5 lakh. This is a violation of the constitution and convention.

President of India has also become the victim of the delay of his own government!
