Sankranti gift to SHG members who attains age of 60

Chief Minister announces Rs.500 pension


The Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy announced that every member of the women self help groups, who attains the age of 60 years will get a minimum pension of Rs.500 per month from Sankranti. He said that the pension scheme envisages each SHG member above the age of 18 years to save one rupee a day. On attaining the age of 60, the SHG member becomes eligible for pension based on her savings.

Self Employed Women's Association, a non governmental organization working for poor women, implements one such scheme for its members. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka also have similar programmes for the SHG members.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Society, T Vijay Kumar said for Elimination of Rural Poverty said that more than one crore women would be covered under the scheme by next March. Andhra Pradesh will be the first State in India to introduce such a scheme.
