DC move on Senior Citizens Act bears fruit, gets 15 complaints

Deputy Commissioner Rajat Aggarwal\'s initiative to implement the Senior Citizens Act in the city is bearing fruit. After the new DC took charge about one and a half month back, implementation of this Act was his top priority.

\"Apart from the instructions issued to the revenue department, we have also started spreading awareness among senior citizens through our staff members. Any transfer of land among blood relations will be subject to Section 23 of the Senior Citizens Act as per which the property can be taken back by the parents in case they are being troubled by their children,\" he said.

Aggarwal had launched this initiative as a pilot project during his tenure in Amritsar and wants to follow it in the industrial town of Ludhiana. \"So far, I have received about 15 complaints from senior citizens from different parts of the city, and officers concerned have been told to redress these complaints,\" he said.

The complaints relate to children not giving monthly expenses to parents, not taking care of ailing parents, and ignoring the parents after division of property.

The DC said their aim was to get monthly expenses for such aggrieved parents. He added that already instructions had been issued to the revenue department to implement Section 23 of the Senior Citizens Act in letter and spirit.

Apart from this, a monthly medical check-up camp has been made mandatory in all the senior citizen homes of Ludhiana so as to maintain good health of the senior citizens.

The deputy commissioner believes that moral education is lacking in the young generation due to which senior citizen homes were mushrooming. He finds it shocking when parents plead for expenses with their own children. He says that this will continue to remain his top priority in Ludhiana and he will spread awareness among the masses in this regard.
