Greetings from BHAVANA!!!,
Congratulations. It is now official. Please go through the attachment which is the copy of a news published in the Lucknow edition of The Times of India today, i.e., on 7th September, 2012. U.P. Government has finally adopted the "Maintenance & Welfare of Parents & Senior Citizens Act 2007" for implementation in U.P. It is the result of the very well attended SENIOR CITIZENS CALL ATTENTION RALLY organized at Lucknow on August 16, 2010 by BHARATIYA VARISHTHA NAGARIK SAMITI (BHAVANA) in collaboration with VIDYUT PENSIONERS PARISHAD U.P., MIRROR FOUNDATIONS, PRAGYA ALOK SEVA SAMITI, KALYANAM KAROTI, VARISHTHA NAGARIK KALYAN SAMITI, SULTANPUR, VARISHTHA NAGARIK KALYAN SANSTHAN, UNNAO, CENTRAL BANK RETIREES ASSOCIATION U.P., ABHIYAAN, NAVPARIMAL, SURAKSHA KARMCHARI AWAS EVAM KALYAN SAMITI, KESHAVNAGAR & PRIYADARSHINI COLONY VARISHTHA NAGARIK KALYAN SAMITI and VARISHTHA NAGARIK MAHASAMITI, U.P.
However, this is not the end of this issue. A Notification to this effect is still awaited from U.P. Govt. Then formation of rules, setting up of tribunals at various levels, setting up of Old Age Homes etc. shall have to be done by the Govt. We shall have to watch their progress also.
Any way, since a beginning has been done, the ultimate goal shall also be reached.
On behalf of the senior citizens of U.P. and on behalf of all the above mentioned organizations, I thank the Chief Minister of U.P., Sri Akhilesh Yadav ji and his team for showing a gesture of goodwill towards Elders by adopting the MWPSC Act 2007 for implementation in U.P.
