Telangana Finance Minister T Harish Rao today informed the Assembly during the Budget session that the government had proposed to introduce a pension hike for the former MLAs in the state.

Explaining that the proposed hike would increasing the current pension of Rs 30,000 to Rs 50,000, Rao introduced a bill in this regard, and urged Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy to initiate the procedures for the passing of the same.

"Taking cognisance of the problems faced by the elderly and retired MLAs of the state, Chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao has been kind enough to support the pension hike proposal. Since many retired legislators face health and age-related problems, our government will try to take steps to help them face the same. Under the guidance of the CM, the relevant authorities have already been instructed to provide financial assistance worth Rs 10 lakh to the MLAs and their spouses to cover their healthcare expenditure. We hope that this bill too will help ease the monetary pressures faced by the retired legislators of Telangana," Harish Rao said.

The minister also revealed that the TRS government had proposed to increase the upper ceiling of pensions for ex-MLAs to Rs 75,000.

He then extended thanks to the CM for trying to address the problems of the former MLAs.
