Plan for welfare of elderly: Supreme Court to government

The Supreme Court on Friday expressed concern for the over 10 crore senior citizens in the country, a majority of whom are deprived of love, care and respect by their kin in a fast-paced world. The SC asked the Centre for a roadmap to provide them basic facilities like shelter, food and healthcare.

The concern of a bench of Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justices R Banumathi and U U Lalit was palpable as former law minister and Congress leader Ashwani Kumar, who personally filed the PIL, narrated the pitiable condition in which the aged find themselves.
