NGOs for elderly call for financial support in old age

New Delhi, Aug 11 (PTI) Noting that financial support in old age is a necessity, NGOs for elderly have said that with an increasingly longer life span, income generation through a second job and gainful engagement post-retirement has become the need of the hour.

Reacting to a recent report titled ”Quality of Life for Elderly Index”, prepared by the Institute for Competitiveness, the NGOs welcomed the focus on the ”quality of life of the elderly” looking at major aspects like financial and social wellbeing.
