My Comment on an article "Proposal for Rs.1,000 minimum monthly pension approved: Government" published in the Economic Times Dated 07/07/2014 at 5:20 pm.
"A very good decision. Minimum pension being raised to Rs.1000 per month is a great gift for most of those who are drawing only upto half of that amount at present.
It will be a great relief to the pensioner as he may not be compelled to depend on his kins for even pocket expenses and daily needs which may not be common for other members of family. He can live with some self respect."
