It's already July 4th and pensions are yet to be released. Many old age people are eagerly waiting for their pensions to be given. They have relief on this only source to go on in their life for rest of their lives. Those people who have already started to depend on their pensions have been waiting for these pensions to cope up with their medical expenses and food expenses.
In 1990, these pensions have started. However, they came to limelight only during YSR's regime when he increased the pension by 200 rupees. Later Nara Chandra Babu Naidu increased it to 1000 rupees. And again he made it double which happens to be 2000 before 2019 elections. The pension had been increased to 3000 for physically challenged people. There are lakhs of beneficiaries waiting for their pensions.
Still, it is being said that they might have to wait till July 8th to get pensions. It is said that Jagan Mohan Reddy in order to increase his political mileage wants to release pensions on the birth anniversary of his father YS Rajasekhar Reddy. Only for old age people the pension amount estimated is over 5.4 million. Special challenged and widowed are additional to these. All these lakhs of beneficiaries are waiting for their rightful pensions.
