Increased Pensions is the biggest successful welfare scheme in Chandrababu Naidu’s regime so far. The pensions scheme is being efficiently handled and the government is also gearing up for Unemployed Youth Allowance as well.
The government will pay allowance for unemployed youth but will use their services in one way or other. To counter this pensions and allowances, Opposition Leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy announced a new pension scheme.
If voted to power, Jagan promised to give pension to everyone who is above 45 years ago. Currently, pensions are being given to those who are aged above 65 years. Giving pension to people above 45 years will be a game changer, Jagan feels.
