The AP government has noticed that delivering the pension scheme is not satisfactory mode and lakhs of beneficiaries are raising voices against the government and rushing to collector offices to lodge complaints in Spandana. It has initiated steps to restore the deleted pensions and to get good feed back from pic. Even the yellow media also telecasting the news on this issue and creating panic over public and misguiding the public that government is simply minimizing the pensions to reduce the budget.

The chief minister, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy held a review meeting on the subject, instructed that the officials take special measures to do justice to those who have not received pension.
He asked them to launch a special drive for a week to identify eligible persons for pension who were left out.

Minister for panchayat raj and rural development P.Ramachandra Reddy said in a statement that mandal development officers and municipal commissioners would personally visit the houses of applicants who have been left out and after scrutiny, if the beneficiary is eligible for pension, he or she would get two months pension in March including that of February.

In all, 54.68 lakh beneficiaries identified as part of Nava Sakam survey, the minister said and added that volunteers had personally disbursed pension of Rs 1320 crore at the door-steps of the beneficiaries on January 1 which amounts to nearly 87% of the pension and thereby created a record in the disbursal of pension. Around 6.14 lakh new beneficiaries were identified this month for pension as part of Nava Sakam survey in the state.

The names of 4.80 lakh people who were ineligible were deleted.
