LUCKNOW: A pension of Rs 6,000 per annum will be disbursed to the women who have been given triple talaq in the state, government sources said on Saturday.

In the last quarter of the current financial year, the government has targeted to start giving pension to the victims of triple talaq, and the pension amount will be Rs 500 per month, said sources.

Reacting to this, Shia religious leader Maulana Saif Abbas said: "The government should look more into the education of children and their stay, which will be better than giving Rs 500 as pension to triple talaq victims."

Sunni religious leader Maulana Sufiana said: "Politics has been done on this issue. It is to be seen what justice the government wants to do by giving Rs 500 per month pension."

An activist Shahista Ambar said: "The government's initiative is good but the amount is very low. It will be difficult to meet the basic needs with Rs 6,000 annual pension."
