“There are more than 3,600 people who have been recorded ‘dead’ in the pensioners’ list in the district.
Square at Mananchira in Kozhikode on Saturday, many people who were denied welfare pensions for one or the other reason came together demanding that their pensions be reinstated with retrospective effect.
There are no less than 1,600 such people in Kozhikode Corporation alone,” said Alikkutty Aramba, State president of Handicapped Welfare Association.
Mohammed, who does not even have a proper road to his house, has a car in his pension records and hence does not deserve a pension.
“We want to be back on the pension roll and get our pension arrears,” said Madavoor Sainudeen, State secretary of Kerala Vikalanga Association.
