Maintenance and Welfare of Parents Act (INDIA)


Maintenance & Welfare of Parents & Senior Citizens Act 2007 : WHEN
WILL MAHARASHTRA GOVERNMENT IMPLEMENT ??????????????
1 January 2010

Traditional norms and values of the Indian society laid stress on providing care for the elderly. However, due to withering of the joint family system, a large number of elderly are not being looked after by their family. Consequently, many older persons, particularly widowed women are now forced to spend their twilight years all alone and are exposed to emotional neglect and to lack of physical and financial support. This clearly reveals that ageing has become a major social challenge and there is a need to give more attention to the care and protection for the older persons. Though the parents can claim maintenance under the Section 125 of the Cr Pc and Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act (HAMA) BUT the procedure is both time-consuming as well as expensive. Hence, there is need to have simple, inexpensive
and speedy provisions to claim maintenance for parents. The Indian Parliament felt that the elderly and senior citizens of the country required care and attention and also protection of their life and liberty. It further felt that the young generation was failing in its duty to take adequate care of its elderly citizens, including 
parents, relatives or other members of the society, who have turned old and infirm and whose population in 2009 is estimated 90 millions.

The major benefits in the act includes : Monthly maintenance upto Rs. 10,000/- , punishment of Rs.5000/- or jail for three months or both for not paying the monthly allowance by children's or relative, 90
days time bound disposal,no need of advocate, a 3rd party intervention possible , to first resolve the differences and disputes between parents and children amicably, medical facility , protection of life and property , old age homes in every districts etc...



Lets give Justice to our Elders, lets give Love, Care & Respect to our
parents .Say NO TO ELDER ABUSE.
