An agreement has been reached between legislators on two of the three disputed proposals to overhaul the social welfare system.
They also agreed to include a fourth category to the anti-inflation allowance and keep the housing allowance at BD100 a month rather than drop to BD50 for those living with their parents.
However, a debate is still continuing on social allowance to pensioners.
