1. Raise rate of interest to 10 % on SCSS (Senior Citizen Savings Schemes) in all nationalised banks. Currently it is less than 8.6 percent. Please make it monthly instead of quarterly.
Raise the limit from 15 lacs to 30 lacs and raise the time period from 5 years to 15 years. With this senior citizens will be able to get rupees 25000 monthly interest. It could make them independent, live peacefully and gracefully.
2. Please raise the exemption limit of Income tax from three lacs to five lacs for the seniors.
No returns to be filed and no form 15 H to be filled if their income is less than five lacs.
3. Provide medicines at flat 30 % rebate on submission of Aadhaar Card ( this shouldn't be a problem as wholesale rebates are already 30-40%.
The cost of tests have gone high so we hope to get concession in pathology checkups, treatments and surgery.
4. If the age limit for medical insurance is raised to 85 along with a contribution from the government that would be great help.
Now a days parents have become a burden to the children and they leave them at their own plight.
Please help us to live in peace and with dignity.
