ABSTRACT

Ageing is a natural process and none can stop or avoid it. But any being, community or nation can face it bravely if there is good governance and pragmatism about the future. The government, which represents the people, is responsible for delivering a minimum standard of living for the welfare of the citizens of the nation. India now deals with the aged population through different social security schemes with minimal compatibility among them. Everywhere, the older persons are the major beneficiaries of social security and their needs include food, clothing, shelter, health care and emotional support. All these needs barring emotional support can be met through an income. Therefore, need for income security is the pioneer requirement for older persons. Though India is a welfare nation, social security given to the citizens is inadequate for their daily life. In India, majority of the workforce earns through unorganized labour markets. The issues which generally happen among the aged are increasing number of aged women due to widowhood, health and financial problems that lead to elder abuse and neglect. Most often, the abusers are the caregivers who are particularly family members. Another important problem among the aged is the migration of their children which induces increasing risk to managing elderly life owing to physical absence of their children. This chapter confronts the current demographic situation in India, living arrangements, marital status, working status and places of residence based on various Censuses. Migration impact is examined using data collected through the Kerala Ageing Survey 2013 conducted by the Centre for Development Studies, Kerala and funded by the Government of Kerala. More... »
