Mah Govt agrees to lower senior citizens’ age limit from 65 to 60

Nagpur, Jul 10 (UNI) The Maharashtra government on Tuesday agreed to
lower the age of attaining senior citizenship from 65 years to 60
years, in order to bring it on par with the central government.
A demand to this effect was made by senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar in
the state Assembly on day two of second week of Monsoon session.
In a calling attention notice tabled in the House, Mr Pawar said
that the number of senior citizens in the state stood at 1.25 crore
and charged that the GR, issued by the state government for senior
citizens, was "pseudo".
"Not a single decision in the GR has been implemented by the
government so far, hence, it has proved to be useless for senior
citizens," he claimed.
The NCP legislator demanded that government should convene a meeting
in Chief Minister’s chamber and said unless and until the members
are satisfied, the calling attention notice should be kept reserved.
Subsequent to the demand, the Presiding Officer announced keeping of
the calling attention notice reserved.
The decision would come into effect from March 2016, Minister for
Social Justice Rajkumar Badole announced in the House.
