Thiruvananthapuram: Based on a report submitted by the Chief Secretary VP Joy, Governor Arif Mohammad Khan will set forth his recommendations to the state government over the pensions of ministers’ personal staff.

The Governor, who visits Delhi on Monday, will return on March 4 and take further action on this. Governor had opposed dispensing pensions to the personal staff of ministers who serve them for two and a half years.

The Governor's contention had led to an open conflict with the government. Following this, the Governor demanded the state to submit details regarding pensions of personal staff, which the Chief Secretary handed over to Raj Bhavan.

The Chief Secretary’s report describes the rules for pensions and the number of beneficiaries. The report noted that the pensions scheme is legal.
