As part of its commitment to implement ‘Navaratnas’, the YSR Congress government, headed by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, on Thursday issued a GO enhancing social security pension under ‘YSR Pension Kanuka’ for the aged and reducing the upper age limit for beneficiaries from 65 to 60 years. Enhancement of pension amount and reduction of the age limit is one of the promises made by the YSRC chief under ‘Navaratnas’.
The first file Jagan Mohan Reddy signed immediately after taking oath of office on Thursday pertained to hiking of social security pensions. As per the GO, pension for the aged, widows, weavers, toddy tappers, fishermen, single women, traditional cobblers and PLHIV (people living with HIV) was enhanced to Rs 2,250 per month from Rs 2,000. The pension hike will come into effect from June and the enhanced amount of Rs 2,250 will be paid to beneficiaries in July.
