The Samakya Started in the year 2001 under the leadership of Sri P. Singaiah, J.P. Venkateswarllu and V. Mukunda Rao and has been working for the welfare of 50 lakh elderly people in the state of Andhra Pradesh.. The Leaders of Samakya have been meeting the Honble Chief Minister, other ministers, people representatives And Senior officers from time to time and achived the following for the benefit of the elderly people for which we Are very much thankful to Govt.
The Senior Citizens constitute 10% of the population and 18% of the voters and stands as the biggest chunk in the Society irrespective of cast, creed, religion, region, language and sex. The Govt if India introduced National Policy to the older people in the year 1999, the concept of which of that every human being spends his time, talent and treasure for the welfare of family, society and nation for 40 years and then loose his strength and memory. At this last phase of the life one should live with peace and dignity for which the Govt have to provide concessions, rebates And discounts in every field. Today India could reach to the level of one of the 5 Top Countries only because of the sincere efforts and hard work of the then youth i.e., present day Senior Citizens.
Articles 21 and 41 speak about the rights and welfare of Senior Citizens. The United Nations declared 1st October as World Senior Citizens Day and 15th June as Anti Abuse Awareness day. The National policy on older persons was introduced in 1999. Unfortunately, inspite of the above , the elderly people are marginalized by family and society. The District Magistrate and Collector who happens to be the main administrator of the Act is always busy with meetings, camps and video conferences. He hardly has any time to look into the problems faced by the senior citizens. There are so many cases where senior citizens are murdered by their children for money etc. In such cases The Tribunals should take up the cases suo moto.
Most of public do not even know that there is an act called MWPSC, 2007. Awareness programs should be conducted through electronic and print media, by advertisements on transport vehicles and as Govt advertisement In cinema theaters. The upper limit of Rs. 10,000/- towards maintenance charge should be deleted. A separate department may be appointed to look after the welfare of Senior citizens with a separate budget. An exclusive machinery should be constituted to follow up the Tribunal’s / Appellate Tribunal’s orders.
We highly appreciate the sincere efforts being made by the AISCCON for the welfare of senior citizens and hope that the above suggestions are followed up by them.
