The Haryana government on Wednesday raised the Old Age Allowance by Rs. 50 per month to Rs. 600 thus benefitting over 9.83 lakh beneficiaries in the state.


An announcement to this effect was made by social justice and empowerment minister Geeta Bhukkal while replying to a question asked by BJP MLA Krishan Pal Gujjar during the Question Hour in the ongoing session of Haryana Vidhan Sabha here on Wednesday.

Bhukkal said that this enhanced pension would be admissible from April 1, 2012.
