Freedom fighters’ pension doubled

The government runs all kinds of campaigns for the freedom fighters because no one can repay the debt they have done for the service of the country, irrespective of their lives. In such a situation, the pension received after the job also becomes necessary for living. The government also takes full care of this. Meanwhile, news has come that there is a state in the country where the pension of freedom fighters has been doubled. This decision has been taken by the Government of Maharashtra.

The Maharashtra government on Thursday increased the pension of freedom fighters who participated in the Indian Freedom Struggle, Marathwada Liberation War and Goa Liberation Struggle from Rs 10,000 to Rs 20,000 per month. A decision in this regard was taken in the weekly cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde here. The cabinet also passed a resolution allowing socially and educationally backward class candidates (Marathas) to avail quota for jobs under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category.

Recruitment Process Started

According to a statement issued from the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), the cabinet in this regard has started the recruitment process after 9th September 2020. According to the statement, a resolution allowing farmers whose names are not included in the voter list to contest the Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) elections was also passed.
