Relief for Senior Citizens without pension

Many of the Retired people from the Private Sector do not have any pension form their employees. They are totally dependent on the Income generated through their investments. With the Inflation slowing down according to Government figures (but the price of all commodities used by common man increasing disproportionately) and the interest rate coming down, these retirees are one of the hardest hit. With no Forum to address the grievances they always suffer in silence. Why can't some scheme to address the problem be made. Some suggestions are
1. Interest income earned for such people who do not have pension or any other income be exempt from Tax upto Rs 5 lakhs p.a.
2. Special investment opportunities for such people with a Tax free return of 8% without limits. Such investments can be used for Infrastructure like Railways, Road etc. more
