The Minister for IT and Panchayat Raj KT Rama Rao on Monday announced that the pensions for the month of October and November will be given at once. He informed that the state government has passed the orders and the pensions will be released between Dec 10 and Dec 15.
In a meeting with the district collectors, KTR and Finance Minister Etela Rajender said the 25.68 Lakh applications have been received for the pet scheme of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao. The ministers asked the district collectors to set apart all the applications into the respective panchayats, from where the pensions will be handed over to the applicants.
There was a huge cue and cry on the scheme titled ‘Aasara’ when several erstwhile pensioners were denied the benefits under new application process.
