Sharing the letter on social networking platform Instagram, Modi, who has been out of the country to escape corruption charges against him, questioned the motive behind such employment considering the fact that Dhoni earns approximately Rs 100 crore in a year.
According to the copy of the appointment letter, Dhoni was given the position of Vice President (Marketing) at India Cements, with a basic pay of Rs 43,000 per month, along with a dearness allowance of Rs 21,970, and also a special pay of Rs 20,000.
The document also entitles Dhoni to Rs 20,400 as house rent allowance (HRA) when he is stationed in Chennai. He is also set to get a special HRA of Rs 8,400, if he is in Chennai, and Rs 8,000 if elsewhere. Another special allowance of Rs 60,000 and education/newspaper expenses of Rs 175 per month have also been mentioned in the letter.
