Rao said the decision was taken in view of the dire straits faced by single women in the society. “Poverty inflicts more misery among women than men. Hence, we have decided to give Rs 1,000 per month per person pension to these helpless, single women,” he said, adding that the government was already giving pensions to the aged people, differently abled persons, widows and beedi workers.
