The number of the senior citizens in India is increasing day by day. People born before the Independence of India are today 67+ or more. Every year more are added.


The Senior Citizens specially those belonging to the below poverty line and the poor illiterate are facing great hardship in the various facets of life.


The Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment, Government of India has launched a number scheme for their welfare, offering them numerous privileges and benefits through various government and non-government organizations.


Most of these privileges and benefits do not reach the targeted sector due to, mostly ignorance.
