Protection of Rights of Senior Citizens 

The Government has enacted the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007 which, inter-alia, makes maintenance of parents /senior citizens by their children / relatives obligatory and justiciable through Tribunals; provides for revocation of transfer of property by senior citizens in case of neglect by children/relatives; penal provisions for abandonment of senior citizens, medical facilities for senior citizens; and protection of life and property of senior Citizens.

As per the Seventh Schedule to the Constitution of India, “Police” and “Public Order” are State Subjects and, as such, the primary responsibility of prevention detection, registration, investigation and prosecution of crime, lies with the State Governments/Union Territory Administrations. The Ministry of Home Affairs has issued an Advisory dated 30.8.2013 on ‘Protection of Life and Property of Senior Citizens’ which is also available at –
