Old Age Homes for Senior Citizens

Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Shri D. Napoleon informed Rajay Sabha today in a written reply that an allocation of Rs.100 crore was made for a proposed Centrally-sponsored Scheme to assist construction of Old Age Homes for Indigent Senior Citizens in 2010-11. However, the Scheme could not be approved during the Eleventh Five Year Plan. 

Under Section 19 of the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007, the responsibility of establishing and maintenance old age homes for indigent senior citizens is of the State Government, which brings the Act into force, the Minister Said.
