Maharashtra government announces pensions for those imprisoned during Emergency

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday said that those who were imprisoned under the Maintenance of Internal Security Act during the Emergency will get pensions. Fadnavis said that “pension was an honour more than money” for those who were in jail during that period.
Tuesday marks 44 years of the imposition of the Emergency by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1975.
“Many people refused the pension. But some are still poor who lost jobs after being arrested for no fault of theirs,” PTI quoted Fadnavis as saying during the Question Hour in the state Assembly.
Earlier, Minister of State for Relief and Rehabilitation Madan Yerawar had said that 3,267 applications for pensions had been approved so far. He was responding to queries by Nationalist Congress Party member Ajit Pawar.
