I gfeel when PM can go on donating to other countries billion he can least do for senior citizen is make medical free from senior citizens. People are talking 0 and 70 let it be in between 65 and upwards. I hope Pm realizes the plight of senior citizens and pass order immediately. more  
Dear Sir , The India is having population is total sum of Europe + Russia + USA . Don't compare with any country . Instead of Living on tablets & medicine , prefer happy death with our relatives & Friend. Accept Naturally occurred things & Live happily . Pray God to Offer Silent & smooth death without any medicine. more  
Even though most of the politicians are senior citizens they do not give any benefits to senior citizens as 99% of them are wealthy. They should be given importance as the senior citizen population is increasing in India. more  
Dear Satyapal Singh (spritual thinker) Sir, Not 70 years sir but from 60 yrs itself they are not eligible for any benefits. They are treated as an accursed class of people. Even the Govt Ayush is not available to senior citizens. i am 64 but when i travel in a bus i cannot get a concession even though i possess a senior citizen card issued by the department of women and child welfare. I am not eligible for credit cards, no loans excepting on my Gold, no reduction in medicines and hospitalization no health insurance. even Covid 19 health insurance stops at 55 yrs. Sir, are the senior citizens not citizens of India? What unpardonable sins have we committed that we are deprived of the basic necessities the others enjoy? The medicines, vegetables, groceries, all have taxes (now GST) being paid by us but no recognition of the payments. we do not get any entertainment at concession prices. The prices are exorbitant. what about those people who do not get any pension. The Government should help us in start-ups by giving us interest free loans, if we are not eligible for employment. We also need to live till death takes us away. Please do consider us also as humans and not burdens. We have looked after our seniors with love and affection and have kept our parents with us till they decided to leave us and go their eternal homes next to GOD, and we expect the same from the younger generation. Respect, Affection and kindness being meted out to us. more  
In India, situation is different. The benefits of Govt.Subsidy or Govt.Schemes formulated for the needy is being taken by rich and upper class who are indeed not needy. In foreign country people are thinking about others whereas in India the people are selfish. They don't care for another Indian who are needy. more
