No, they don't. For example, the many (all?) of the states have laws by which they pay their state MLA's income taxes. I'm sure the MP's must have a similar arrangement.

Technically, I think the income tax subsidy itself is supposed to be subject to income tax. I.e., if MLA earns 3 lakh as salary, tax is 1 lakh (approx.). So he gets 1 lakh from the state to pay his taxes. But the 1 lakh is taxable, too, so he's supposed to pay 33,000 or so in tax.

It'll be a cold day in hell before anyone does, though.
