Supreme Court’s Concern for Senior Citizens during COVID-19

In a petition filed by former Rajya Sabha MP and Senior Advocate Dr. Ashwani Kumar, on Aug 4, 2020, the Supreme Court has directed the Union Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to ensure that steps are taken to provide care to those senior citizens who are living alone during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan and R Subhash Reddy have directed the Ministry to ensure that old age pension for these senior citizens is disbursed in a timely manner. Moreover, the states have to ensure that they respond promptly when the senior citizens make such requests. Mr. Mathew Cherian of HelpAge India was the Amicus Curae. The Supreme Court had earlier taken suo motu cognizance of the fear of spread of the contagion in prisons and child care institutions and had passed certain directions for ensuring that the spread is contained in these places.
