Your points is correct as there is no social security coverage for retired persons. There are so many offers particular to some persons on the basis of religion and other considerations to get vote bank and the existence for the politicians. So far None of the Govt since 1947 had not adopted a policy that protect the senior persons specially who are drawing meager pension or other lower income from private sectors. The Bureaucrats even at the retirement enjoy maximum benefits in addition to the earning they accumulated during their service. It is by God gift that they happen to be in the Bureaucrats cadre not with standing the qualifications, skills and knowledge gained by others in various positions and services. But their meager income is subject to TDS and other tax provisions without looking to their expenses and other commitments towards family and old age treatment and other concerns. Therefore, the Govt should implement a policy that would protect the senior retired persons from Govt / Public sector and other organizations at their old age to have a decent life and to maintain their status quo while in service. more

We the Pensioners getting more problems like 1 Medical Treatemnt cost getting Increased. 2, Good Hospitals have too costly Treatement. 3. Transport to go to Bank and to Pension is also Getting Costly. 4. Statement of Pension are not obtained. Looking at these facts and moreover to Leave in Peace needs more Money so the Pensioners demand for Tax exemption is genuine. more  
Here in India, all the political leaders of any party are like big mosquitoes, they only know to suck blood by way of various taxation on service class people and on senior citizens. more  
Mr. Sanjay- first you try to find out from so many data available, that who is getting pension and who is not getting pension and how much each getting. Than you will realize that those who are getting less, how they prolonged their lives at old age when so many liabilities on their head. Additionally they have to go in process of IT etc. which is cumbersome at old age. more  
Mr. Harpreet- I think you don't know meaning of pension. How youth & unemployed get pension?. Pension is for those people, putting his life in service for years to gather, which depend on rules of pension from each department/ factory etc. So please think on your writes up here. more  
Mr. Harpreet Anand Sahab Ji.....First of all we are talking for the forum of Senior Citizens and not for the youth. Secondly youth don't want to work and if you propose pension for youth and unemployed, they will sit ideal and enjoy all benefits. Mr. Sasidharan.......I respect your views But the Politicians and their vote bank will not allow to do it. Even at the age of age 80 they are still young and wants to enjoy all the benefits after serving for 5 years and WE the people who had given our blood to the nation or to the Company for 35-40 years hardly gets anything. I AM PROUD TO BE INDIAN BUT DOES NOT WANT TO STAY IN INDIA more
