Parliament should approve revised national policy on elderly: SC told

Parliament should approve the national policy on welfare of elderly person in view of a “grey tsunami” which is likely to overtake the nation, an NGO has told the Supreme Court.

The report on policies for elderly and suggestions was filed before a bench of Justices M B Lokur and P C Pant which took it on record and asked the Centre to go through it.

The NGO HelpAge India has been made amicus curiae by the apex court in a PIL filed by former law minister and senior advocate Ashwini Kumar seeking implementation of welfare schemes for the elderly.
