The biggest shock is for the pensioners and the pension would be cut by 50%. All the other public sector employees would have a salary cut. Telangana Chief Minister KCR already hinted about the salary cuts on Sunday and made things official last night. He said that the state took a beating because of coronavirus and is completely shut down.
