Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government has decided to cut short the commission given to persons who undertake door-step distribution of welfare pension. It is learnt that the commission will be cut by Rs 20. As of now, the commission given to a person for a single door delivery is Rs 50. This will be reduced to Rs 30.
Similarly, delivery of pension is done for one or more months together, then the commission will be given only once.
Finance minister KN Balagopal and Cooperatives Minister VN Vasavan informed that the matter has been intimated to union representatives. The postal department has agreed to deliver the pension at Rs 30 commission. Hence, if more commission is given for cooperative society officials then it becomes an issue during audit.
The commission for cooperative society officials has been pending for one year. The new development comes at this juncture.
