Pre-budget survey Jan 2022

Older People seek a fair share in the forthcoming budget – Agewell Foundation appeals to the FM on behalf of Old People

Old age-related varied needs and requirements are now emerging as new challenges. For most elderly in upper age groups, taking care of their health is becoming an increasingly difficult task. On the other hand, a huge population of older persons in lower age groups (60-70 years) is struggling to keep themselves active, engaged, and productive as well.
