VIJAYAWADA: Krishna district collector M Raghunandhana Rao has asked the mandal parishad development officers (MPDOs) to expedite the process of interlinking the data of social security pensioners to Aadhaar data by the end of the month.

Addressing a review meeting  at the sub-collector’s office here Wednesday, the district collector said that under the social security pension scheme, pension is being disbursed to the old, poor, disabled, widows, weavers and toddy-tappers to ensure honorable life to them.

The pension would be enhanced from `200 to `1,000 from October 2. Pension for the disabled would be increased to `1,500.

The district collector said that there are 3,13,028 pensioners in Krishna district. Of them, 2,10,424 have been interlinked with the Aadhar data while  25,264 pensioners have enrolled  Aadhar cards. As many as 77,340 pensioners are yet to get the Aadhar linkage and the process should be completed by month-end. He said irregularities can be done away with through Aadhar linkage to pensioners.
