Social security for senior citizens

This petition had 163 supporters

*All retiree persons*  *A movement* 

Every retired person after rendering *30 to 36 years of service* to the *Govt or the Deptt* where he/she worked and for all his/her services the *Deptt pays him salary* which is ofcourse *treated as income* and is *liable for income tax.* But *after retirement* he is paid *pension as a supperanuation fund* for his livelihood on account of serving for so many years. Here a question arise as to *why Income Tax is levied on pension.* This is not an *income for any services or work.* This is only *a defered wage* by the Deptt to the employees who have served the Deptt for so many years. Then why Income tax? Participate through your voice and let it reach the *Finance Minister, to discontinue* the *levy of Income tax on pension.*

If *MPs & MLAs pension is not taxable why our pension is Taxed.* Let the *Pensioners community & Civil society* know the facts. Let GoI make this happen from next budget. We do not have social security scheme for senior citizens but at least let us have right to live with dignity.
