* � A call to PM from Sr Citizens  �*

Shri Narendra Modi
Prime Minister of India.

At the outset congratulations for all your acheivements. We wish you success in all your endevaours i.e "Make in India", " Swatch Bharat" "Digital India" etc.....

Our humble request please, don't trouble the Senior Citizens.

1. Request you to pay Interest on SCSS (Senior Citizen Savings Scheme) in all nationalised banks atleast to 12 percent at par. Currently it is paid 7.25 percent. 
Interest payable quarterly to be paid monthly. 
Raise the limit from 15 lacs to 30 lacs. 

As senior citizens will be able to get Rs 30000 monthly interest peacefully and gracefully without depending on their children. Don't deduct tax on this income requesting to fill form 15 H etc. This means additional hassles for elderly. 

The period of investment should be for 15 years and not five years. 
As the span of life will not be more. 

Pass a resolution to this scheme the interest rates should never be reduced but increased to fight inflation.

2. Raise the limit of Income tax from three lacs to Six lacs for Senior Citizen. 
No returns to be filed if your income less than Six lacs for Senior Citizen . 

If income exceeds 6 lacs you may tax accordingly as they should not be affected by any political weather.

3. Provide medicines to senior citizens on submission of Adhar card, or Pan card, a flat 70-80 percent reduction in the cost of medicines across the country. 

Similarly all pathalogy checkups, treatments and operations if any. 

Specially dental has become very expensive. 

Even the medical premiums paid may be reduced accordingly.

After working for three to four decades let us have a some dignity and live a decent life. 

We are not asking for the moon.

You will appreciate nowadays Parents have become a burden to the children and they leave them to fight their own battle.

They are career minded and self centered. Senior Citizens are shy to share this fact as they still regard their children and which is their family culture not to give up their children at any cost how ever may be their sufferings.

We Senior Citizens have elected you with a hope you will take care of us but you have left us in lurch.

Hope you want our votes to continue further this will be an important criteria for any goverment coming in future. Beware the mind sets are changing and Senior Citizens are cursing from their bottom of the heart for this miserable present financial state, which will never go waste.

This is a humble request and hope good sense will prevail and you will implement as soon as possible to give a great releif to senior citizens to end their sleepless nights. We have no intentions to affend you, we want to live in peace and with dignity. 

*You are also a senior citizen.*

Hope all senior citizens will agree to this suggestion and keep in mind before casting their valuable vote.

Rather than living on false promises.

Warm regards
