The decision was taken at a cabinet meeting presided over by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje who had announced the monthly pension to MISA detainees in 2008 when she was the Chief Minister.

However, her successor Ashok Gehlot ordered the scrapping of the scheme in 2009 when the Congress came to power.

Minister Rajendra Rathore said, "It was decided in the cabinet meeting that we will revive the pension scheme to benefit those who were detained under MISA. Quantum of pension will be decided soon."

Launch of a special sanitation campaign across the state on January 10-30 and review of some ordinances passed by the previous government were also among decisions taken in the meeting.
