Tripura hikes social security pension

The Tripura government has increased the allowance under the social security pension schemes to benefit the marginalised sections of society. The hike would be a minimum of ₹300 and a maximum of ₹500. A decision has also been taken to pay the social security allowance into the bank accounts of the beneficiaries.

A leader of the ruling BJP said the hike in social security pension was a commitment incorporated in the vision document released ahead of the Assembly elections last year. The party is completing one year in office on March 9.
