TAX Rebate for very senior citizens

In our Hindu Ashram system, there are 4 ashrams starting at 0 to 25,25 to 50 ,50 to 75 & 75 to 100 or end of life.These are called Brahamcharya ashram,grihasth ashram, vanprasth ashram & sanyas ashram.My suggestion is to adopt 75 as the age at which tax rebate for very senior citizens kicks in instead of the present age of 80.This won't result in great loss in revenue, as not many citizens in the age bracket 75 to 80 will get added looking at the present life span of people. This is the age at which lots of expenditure has to be incurred at medicine, treatment and path laboratory tests.Finance Minister may please consider this in next budget. more

Suggestion of Sh SUDARSHAN RASWANT JI is worth appreciating. It is an expression of respect, honour, and a caring attitude towards very senior citizens. Yes, I agree that it will not lead to much load. This will also inspire the younger generation to stay young and live longer. Very senior citizens will also lead a respectable life style. more  
Yes Sri Mahadev devji,Your effort is welcome and inspiring for all of us.We wish you all the best. more
