SHRI EKANATH K. THAKUR (CONTD.): Our current education only influences the head, it does not influence the heart and the hand. With that, we do not have the generosity of a good heart, and we do not have the generosity of a good hand. Unless we reform the education system and really bring the qualities of 3H, along with head, the influences of the generosity of the heart and generosity of the hand, this kind of laws will have to come. I think, we have to create the situation by education where our children learn to respect their parents and consider it their bounden duty to look after them. Sir, I will finish within a minute. While we are castigating our young generation, we cannot paint the entire young generation with a black brush. More than 95 per cent of them take care of their parents and grand parents, and of the remaining 5 per cent who are ungrateful, the filial loyalty is not there, the filial gratitude is not there; of those 5 per cent who do not look after their parents, even there, the record of the daughters is better than the sons. Some psychologists and sociologists have to go into this phenomenon why sons of the remaining 5 per cent, who do not look after their parents, are more ungrateful than daughters. Therefore, I think, we have to have laws which favour daughters more than the sons. (Time bell) I am concluding, Sir. This law is good enough. But, the hon. Minister, Shrimati Meira Kumar, is here, and she has a very wide social canvas. I will try to tell her that over a period of time, this law only will not be enough. You have to come forward with a law for those children, a penal law for those children, who make fortunes out of the misfortunes of their parents. Please think of this. Thank you so much. (Ends)

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (PROF. P.J. KURIEN): Mr. Tarlochan Singh, I can allow you with the consent of others. There are others also. Take four to five minutes. On that condition, I am agreeing.

SHRI TARLOCHAN SINGH (HARYANA) : I will take less than that.

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN (WEST BENGAL): Sir, I rise to support the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Bill, 2007. At the outset, I would definitely admit that the hon. Minister has taken a commendable stride in bringing this Bill before the Parliament. At the same time, she has taken up a very challenging, severe and difficult task because the issue relates to such a problem of the society. It is very difficult to address that problem only by this legal system. But still a compelling situation needs to be created, given the serious degeneration of the social values. I would like to bring to the notice of the House that this task is quite challenging and very difficult because it is a kind of venture to swim against the current of present day's philosophy of survival of the fittest being promoted by the market-driven economic policy paradigm. It has got a tremendous impact on the society and it has gone down to such an extent that one should achieve success, at any cost, no matter whatever the means, whether it is fair or foul. Even the parents are being provoked to teach their children in this manner to achieve, at any cost, success in eminent schools. When this is the general atmosphere, it is but natural that in the process of dismantling the joint family system and the development of nuclear system, we are creating a natural condition for our parents and senior citizens who are neglected by their children and who made their career by sacrificing their old-age benefits. (Contd. by VK/1S)

VK/1S/3.10

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN (CONTD): It is a very difficult task. I must say, it is a kind of big venture to flow against the current. I commend the hon. Minister's efforts for bringing this Bill because, in this situation, some compelling conditions need to be created in the society. That is why this Bill is very much relevant, at this point of time. I would just try to draw a simile with the labour related matter. If we only depend on the good wishes and good intentions of the children that they will take care of their old age parents, I think, in the present day system, it really becomes a difficult task. Similarly, sometimes, our people in the Government expect that the employers will themselves comply with the labour laws, so, depend on their good intentions and give them the advantage of self-certification. It is that kind of a thing. I particularly commend the hon. Minister because she did not depend on this kind of utopian concept and has brought forward this Bill, at least, to create a compelling atmosphere, compelling situation by which if the Government acts, definitely, the intended benefit can be delivered, at least, to some extent.

I just would like to point out that only at two places there is a need for reconsideration. Firstly, after maintenance has been ordered, but that has not been implemented, there is a scope for making a complaint that that order is not being adhered to, therefore, recovery be made. Here a debarring provision has been made that after the issuance of the order, as I can understand from clause 5 (8) of the Bill, that from the date of order of maintenance made by the Tribunal, within three months, you have to file a complaint that this order is not being adhered to, so recovery initiative be taken. For the old-age parents, for senior citizens, it may be difficult, sometimes, because they will also be in a kind of dilemma situation whether they should write or make a complaint against their own children. I think, this debarring period of three months for recovery application that within three months they have to apply, should be deleted. As and when, they are in a position to make a complaint for recovery, it should be kept open.

Secondly, I would like to draw your attention to clause 6 (6) about conciliation. Again, I would like to suggest that please, don't keep this open for conciliation; otherwise, conciliation is a very good approach when it is between parents and children. But the thing is, in the present day enforcement machinery, in the present day standard of governance, it will be implemented by the district level governance or the sub-divisional level governance. The standard and quality of governance as it is today, keeping the door open for conciliation, will tantamount to unnecessary delay and such kind of delay, even the Tribunal will be compelled to condemn and that delay will be fatal and punitive for the parents who are to get benefit out of this Bill. Once it comes to the Tribunal, let the Tribunal make an inquiry. That provision is there. On that basis, by hearing both the parties, the Tribunal can give its judgement. I think there should be no scope for conciliation.

The third point is, there is a provision in the Bill for senior citizens or the parents to make an appeal. After reading the Bill, I am not very sure whether the children are also entitled to appeal against the maintenance order. I think, in the present legal system, you just cannot deny the children to make an appeal against the order of the Tribunal. If we do that, again there will be other encumbrances, which may make this law redundant. I think that guard is also required to be taken.

(Contd. by 1T)

RG/3.15/1T

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN (contd.): In that event, I would like to draw the attention of the hon. Minister that in case children appeal against the maintenance order passed by the Tribunal, that appeal should not put the maintenance order in abeyance. So, the maintenance order, once issued, has to be implemented, no matter even if the children are allowed to appeal against that order. On that ground, I think, there are certain loopholes here, and those have to be taken care of. Sir, I did not move any amendment, but I request the hon. Minister to accommodate these concerns while framing the rule under this Bill.

(Ends)

SHRI C. PERUMAL (TAMIL NADU): Mr. Vice-Chairman, Sir, I welcome the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Bill, 2007, with the hope that it will give relief, at least, to some extent, to the 77 million elderly citizens of our country. Looking at the conditions prevailing in respect of the senior citizens of the country, we appreciate that the Government has come out with this Bill.

The present day youth of our society has been taught how to earn huge money, but they have not learnt how to live with love and sympathy. I think it is the fault of parents, who are bringing up their children with the sheer target of making them as an engineer, a doctor, or a superior official, but not with a minimum target of making them humanitarian persons. Such a situation prevails not only in our country but also even in developed countries.

Though a National Policy on Older Persons was framed in 1999, and a Plan of Action had been prepared, this has not been implemented till today. A considerable percentage of our country's 77 million elderly continue to live with insecurity, injustice and abuse. Further, the senior citizen population is expected to go up to 177 million in the next 25 years. Of this, women will constitute 51 per cent.

Almost 30 per cent of our elderly people are subject to some form of abuse or neglect by their families. Ironically, in spite of this, only one in six of the abused elderly people report the injustice. Shockingly, 47.3 per cent of abuse against elders is committed by adult caregivers, partners or family members, while 48.7 per cent of all abuse cases imply neglect of an elderly person, abandonment, physical, financial or emotional abuse.

According to a recent survey, the problems of the elderly can be broadly categorised as economic, health, disability and social. The most prevalent health problems among the aged people are related to mental handicap, orthopaedic and ophthalmic problems. Loneliness, no source of income, and unemployment were also found to be widespread among those people who live in cities. In metros, lack of adjustment, no source of income, non-fulfilment of basic needs and chronic illness are the major problems.

Unemployment, unfulfilled basic needs and no source of income were universally prevalent among senior citizens in all rural and urban areas. At the same time, orthopaedic and ophthalmic problems are, in addition, very high among the elderly in all regions. Apart from the social and health problems, there is a threat for their safety and security. This situation exists mostly in the upper middle class and rich parents whose child may be working or settled abroad. They are often attacked by unknown culprits and the attackers' motive is mainly robbery.

Hence I request the Government that there should be a special cell in all city police stations to deal with the security of senior citizens. It must coordinate, monitor and protect the old age people. The details of senior citizens, who are living alone, should be kept at every police station, and the names and details of their servants also should be kept in the nearest police stations. I request that this Government should instruct the State Governments to introduce this system in all the police stations. Neighbourhood watch schemes, patrolling by policemen, and wireless alarm systems should be introduced by the local police to prevent robbery and attacks against elderly people while they are alone.

SHRI C. PERUMAL (CONTD.) I welcome the proposal of placing legal obligation through this Bill on children and relatives to maintain the senior citizen or parent in order to enable him to live a normal life. This obligation should apply to all the Indian citizens, including those living abroad. At the same time, I request the Government to take necessary steps for formation of old age home in every district in which sufficient medical facilities and maintenance should be provided to those people.

I would like to request the Government that awareness programmes should be created under this law at the district and township levels about the rights of senior citizens to apply to the tribunal for a monthly allowance from their child when they are unable to maintain themselves on their own earnings or property. The tribunal, on its own, should initiate the process on complaint for maintenance without any disparity or delay. I request the Government to allocate sufficient fund support to State Governments to provide adequate monthly maintenance allowance to the old-aged people. The State and the Central Governments should understand that the old-aged people were once the tax-payers of this Government. They were also once making their contribution for the growth of this country. Hence, this is the responsibility of the Central Government to provide proper maintenance to those people.

It is said that the punishment for not paying them the required monthly allowance shall be Rs. 5,000, or up to three months imprisonment, or, both. However, Government should also provide rights to the tribunal to order the concerned department of the State Government or Central Government to deduct a certain sum from the salary as maintenance allowance, and such deducted amount should be provided to the parents if they are abandoned by the employed child.

I feel that the formation of the tribunal under this law will be a source of hope to old parents in case of being harassed. I found in the Bill that the tribunal will hear out senior citizens' complaints of neglect, physical injury, mental cruelty, separation from families and their restoration against their children or others. I would like to urge the Government to provide that such newly formed tribunals should also hear complaints regarding non-availability of old-age pension, medical insurance, etc. The time-limit for disposal of complaints is 90 days. I would like to request the Government to reduce the maximum time-limit for disposal of complaints to 45 days, since 90 days is too long a period. Also, the tribunal should function at the district level and annexed with district courts.

Sir, on this occasion, I recollect the names of two leaders, our former Chief Minister, Dr. M. G. Ramachandran, who had introduced the old age pension scheme in Tamil Nadu; and our great and dynamic leader puratchithalaivi Amma, who had implemented it very well in Tamil Nadu. (Ends)

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (PROF. P.J. KURIEN): Shri Malaisamy. You may please stick to the time of two minutes.

DR. K. MALAISAMY (TAMIL NADU): Sir, as a senior citizen, am I entitled for anything more? ..(Interruptions)..

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN: No; this is the other way round. Senior citizens have to pay less in their airline tickets, so, he will get less time. I don't want to burden you by giving you more time. So, take only two minutes.

DR. K. MALAISAMY: I assure you, Mr. Vice-Chairman, Sir, that I will abide by your order. At the outset, I hasten to wholeheartedly welcome and support the Bill, which is very timely. It is the felt need of the hour, particularly, when the age-old tradition and family culture is waning and declining; thanks to the invasion of foreign culture on our culture. Sir, the value system is vanishing. Our ethics are eroding, and this is the situation in which it has rightly come to protect the parents and senior citizens. I am not going to dilate in detail because you have given only two minutes. I will, certainly, abide by the time. I could go through the Bill in a cursory and hasty way, and I was able to see that it is well-drafted and it has come out well. But, at the same time, I have got some innate clarifications to seek from the hon. Minister. Clause 2(b) has defined what is meant by "maintenance". "Maintenance includes provision of food, clothing, residence, medical attendance and treatment." This is known as maintenance. As far as I could see, this is the definition which is given. But it looks as if there is a controversy in the body of the Bill.

I now come to clauses 4(2) and 4(3) of the Bill. Clause 4(2) says, "The obligation of the children or relative, as the case may be, to maintain a senior citizen extends to the needs of such citizen so that senior citizen may lead a normal life." When we speak about maintenance, it has been defined. Whereas, when we come to the later part, it is said, "..lead a normal life." For leading a normal life, mere maintenance won't do. That is my point.

Secondly, tribunal has been defined in clauses 7(2) and 9(3). It looks as if the Tribunal has got a discretion to do something more than that. I would like to know from the hon. Minister whether you mean maintenance alone or the welfare of the parents also. If you mean welfare also, then, it needs an amendment. It needs an inclusion. This is the first controversy I could see.

The second controversy which I could see is this. Whether it is a controversy or a correlation, she has to clarify that. The CrPC also envisages and contemplates what is meant by maintenance. The parent can claim maintenance under the CrPC also. The Bill also speaks about maintenance. (Contd. By PK/2D)
