Re: [sss-global] TAMIL NADU TO BUILD SIXTY FOUR SHELTERS FOR THE SENIOR CITIZENS
Here is a message from VRV Rao given below
Laudable move by the TN State Government. Next only to Chandigarh, TN is becoming senior friendly in its activities / policies. Do you think that about 20 lakhs per such shelter is enough? Granting that land will be free (govt land) how big / small a building may be constructed in 20 lakhs? (to house children and senior citizens? I am asking this question from the point of view of NGOs / Individuals planning to set up OAH.
