Only one aged person in a family will get old-age pension of 1,000 per month in Telangana and there will be no relaxation of rules in this regard.
Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, while replying to a debate on Aasara, a social security pension scheme, in the Assembly, made it clear that it was not possible to give old-age pension to both wife and husband.
Only one in the family would get the pension. The limit, however, will not apply to widows and physically-challenged persons. All the widows and physically-challenged persons will get pension irrespective of their number in a family.
