State legislatures must ensure longer and more productive sessions

It has often been suggested that perks and privileges be tied to work as in the corporate sector. This may help things but it would also help if parties also put pressure on their MLAs to do their job if for nothing but to increase the prospects of re-election
According to a study, MLAs work an average of 28 days in a year. Topping the list of those at the bottom of the heap are Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Haryana. This is in sharp contrast to Lok Sabha MPs who notch up at least 70 days a year(Sonu Mehta/HT PHOTO)
