Pension for senior citizens under BPL likely to go up

Monday, January 27, 2020, 8:32 AM

In the senior citizen category, pensions could go up to Rs 1,000/month from Rs 500 now for those above 80 years of age and to Rs 500/month from Rs 200 now for people up to 79 years. The proposed revamp of the rural development ministry's programme will also see linking of pension-rates to inflation and using the SECC data to identify beneficiaries.
