Former legislators will get their pensions directly deposited in their accounts through electronic mode from February. They can also verify their pension account details online.

Assembly Speaker Nadendla Manohar said the website aplegislature.org would be hosted on the net by January 15. The decision to give access to pension account details to members was taken in view of instances of irregularities in pension payment, he said addressing the members of the Former Legislators Forum here on Monday.

Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy said due priority would be given to the former legislators in all the government programmes.
