Andhra Pradesh Government is going to begin the distribution of YSR Pension Kanuka in Andhra Pradesh.
The distribution would begin from the 1st of October.

In regard to this, the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) released an amount of Rs. 1,497 crores.
There would be 61.65 lakh beneficiaries including 34,907 new ones.
The beneficiaries would get monthly pension.
To execute the distribution process, the State Government released an additional Rs. 8.52 crores.
Meanwhile, the Panchayat and Rural Development minister of Andhra Pradesh Peddyreddy Ramachandra Reddy said that the arrangements for distribution have been completed and told that the RBIS is being implemented across the state in the distribution of pensions.
The pensions will be disbursed directly to the beneficiaries through 2.52 lakh volunteers across the state.
