After the annual general meeting held in Kochi, actor and AMMA treasurer Jagdish said that not only have they decided to increase the monthly pension from Rs. 2,500 to Rs.4,000 but also decided to include 21 more members into this scheme.
"With the addition of 21 more veteran artistes into the monthly 'kaineetam' (pension scheme), the total number of our members who are included in this scheme has touched 81. With the present funds, this scheme will go smoothly for another three years and by then we will have to think of ways of putting more money into the fund. It could be either through the conduct of a show or even produce a film like we did the last time," he said.
All leading stars, including Mammootty, Mohanlal, Jayaram, Dileep and others were present at Sunday's meeting.
