First Pension Distribution by Chandrababu Naidu

In Penumaka, within the Mangalagiri constituency, Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu personally participated in the pension distribution program and handed out pensions to beneficiaries. He directly delivered pensions to recipients Islavat Sai, Banavat Pamulu Naik, and Banavat Seetha. During this event, Chandrababu Naidu conversed with the beneficiaries. He stated that the pension increase was implemented from the first month, fulfilling the promise made in the coalition government’s manifesto.

During his visit to Penumaka, Chandrababu Naidu engaged in face-to-face discussions with pensioners. He expressed that he became Chief Minister for the fourth time with the blessings of the people and mentioned that the state’s debts are unknown, highlighting that people have been suppressed for five years. Naidu remarked that the bureaucratic machinery’s morale was undermined, adding that volunteers were threatened, stating pensions wouldn’t be given without them. He assured there would be no rush under his administration and emphasized that the government’s goal is to connect with the people. He pledged to demonstrate how a Chief Minister should be.

Increased pensions will be distributed to beneficiaries from 28 different categories across the state. Along with the increased pensions, three months of pending pensions will also be delivered. The increased pension amounts to ₹4,000, and with the addition of ₹3,000 for the past three months, a total of ₹7,000 will be provided.

Arrangements have been completed to start distributing pensions from today. As per the coalition government’s election manifesto, ₹7,000 will be given, benefiting the elderly, widows, and single women. This ₹7,000 pension program is considered a historic milestone in the country.

Additionally, secretariat staff are delivering pensions to beneficiaries’ homes. It’s reported that a letter from Chandrababu Naidu is also being provided along with the pensions.

Under the YSRCP government, pensions of ₹3,000 were distributed to the elderly, widows, single women, fishermen, handloom workers, toddy tappers, artists, drum artists, and transgender individuals. Recently, an increase of ₹1,000 raised the amount to ₹4,000. Including the pending ₹3,000 for the past three months, a total of ₹7,000 will be given.
