Further the pension for the differently abled and aged artistes has been increased from Rs 1,500 to Rs 3,016 and this will be implemented from June and the hike in pension would cost the state exchequer Rs 12,000 crore per year. Reportedly the state government will bear Rs 11,800 crores while the Centre will spend Rs 200 crore. The documents relating to increased pension amounts will be distributed among beneficiaries in all Assembly constituencies from July 20. Ministers, MPs, MLAs, MLCs, Zilla Parishad chairpersons will participate in the program.

Moreover the cabinet has also decided to reduce the old age pension scheme eligibility age from 65 to 57 years in tune with the promise made in TRS election manifesto. Perhaps the cabinet has instructed the officials concerned to prepare the list of persons of 57 years of age. Apparently the cabinet gave approval to the draft of new Municipal Bill. The CM will introduce the draft bill in the Legislative Assembly on Thursday, where both the Houses will debate and pass the bill.
