Aasara Pension Scheme Launch

Aasara Pension Scheme was launched by the Telangana government on 8 November 2014 in Kothur in Mahboobnagar district. The welfare scheme provides pensions to old people, widows, patients suffering from elephantiasis, AIDS, physically disabled persons, beedi workers and single women. Earlier the age limit to apply was 65 years. But it was later changed to 57 in the year 2020 resulting in an increased number of beneficiaries.

In October 2019, the government had set up Aasara call centres under the supervision of Panchayat Raj and Rural Development minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao at Khairatabad through which those with grievances could dial the phone numbers and lodge their complaints. The phone numbers were set up for 10 districts. The minister said that it would expand to other districts soon.

The welfare scheme has not had a good run ever since its launch in 2014. Many reports of pensions not being given on time or no pension at all have surfaced in various media reports. Recently on 28 February 2022, around three hundred people protested about the uncoordinated handling of the welfare pension scheme. According to the protestors, many who are eligible for the scheme have been running from pillar to post but in vain.
