The double pension benefit will also be given to the spouse incase of death of the army pensioner. This pension will also be paid along with pensions of other employees every month.
He has also decided to extend benefits given to the army personnel martyred while serving to those lost their lives due to ill health and accidents too.
He has instructed the officials not to show any discrimination in this regard and said that retired army personnel working as Special Police Officers will be paid salaries along with other employees every month.

He said steps will be taken to set up two Army Welfare Offices in Medak and Adilabad districts.
The compensation money given for those getting the gallantry awards would be more in the State compared to other states.
He also said that reservation should be given to the children of serving and retired army personnel in the residential Schools.

Since the Centre has agreed to set up an Army School in Warangal, Rao said, a Memorandum of Understadning in this regard will be signed as early as possible.
He also waived off vehicle for the the army personnel and will be exempted from paying in the state.

  6. Honourable Chief Minister, It will be better for the state govt to make every one pay their due share of the property tax and vehicle tax and reimburse all those persons exempted through their bank account to prevent corruption creeping in to this welfare system and deserving ones get left out. No middle men please.
