The matter came up for hearing before a bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan which had on August 4 directed that all eligible old age persons should be regularly paid pension and states should provide them necessary medicines, masks, sanitisers and other essential goods in wake of the pandemic.</p><p>The bench, also comprising Justices R S Reddy and M R Shah, was hearing a plea filed by former union minister and senior advocate Ashwani Kumar who has sought directions with regard to the elderly, saying they need more care and protection in this time of pandemic. During the hearing conducted through video-conferencing, Kumar told the bench that only some states including Odisha and Punjab have responded to the petition so far.</p><figure class=”article-mad” id=”1″><div id=’NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_India/NW18_ENG_India_AS/NW18_ENG_IND_AS_ROS_MID_728′ > <script> googletag.cmd.push(function () { googletag.display(‘NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_India/NW18_ENG_India_AS/NW18_ENG_IND_AS_ROS_MID_728’); }); </script> </div></figure> <!——————This is testing on stg——————–> <script async src=”https://securepubads.g.doubleclick.net/tag/js/gpt.js”></script> <script> window.googletag = window.googletag || {cmd: []}; googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.defineSlot(‘/1039154/NW18_ENG_PWA/NW18_ENG_PWA_Test/NW18_ENG_PWA_Test_Outstream’, [1, 1], ‘div-gpt-ad-1595248121201-0′).addService(googletag.pubads()); googletag.pubads().enableSingleRequest(); googletag.enableServices(); }); </script> <!– /1039154/NW18_ENG_PWA/NW18_ENG_PWA_Test/NW18_ENG_PWA_Test_Outstream –> <div id=’div-gpt-ad-1595248121201-0′ style=’width: 1px; height: 1px;’> <script> googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1595248121201-0′); }); </script> </div> <!–/////////////////////end code testing///////////////////////—> <p>Priority should be granted to elderly people who are being treated at hospitals, Kumar said. Referring to an affidavit filed by Manipur, he said that states should be directed to file better affidavits detailing the action taken so far.</p><p>The bench, after hearing the submissions, granted four weeks further time to the states to file their responses on the plea. In its August 4 order, the apex court had said that looking at their vulnerability, the elderly should be given priority in admission in government hospital and in the event of any complaint made by them, the hospital administration shall take immediate steps to remedy their grievances.</p><p>The bench had said that the top court had already issued directions on December 13, 2018 in the matter and those directives were needed to be complied with by all concerned, including the states. Kumar had earlier told the court that the elderly living alone are “worst sufferers” and they are not able to get medicines, masks, sanitisers and other essential goods. In its December 2018 verdict, the apex court had said that statutory rights of over 10 crore elderly persons in India must be recognised and implemented.</p><p>It had directed the Centre to obtain information from all states and Union Territories about the number of old age homes in each district and had also suggested a relook at the pension for the elderly so as to make it is more realistic. Emphasising the social justice aspect, the apex court had said that state is obligated to ensure that right to live with dignity, shelter and health of citizens, including the elderly, are not only protected but also enforced. The apex court had pronounced the verdict on the pleas by Kumar and one Sanjeeb Panigrahi.</p><figure class=”article-mad” id=”5/7″><div id=’NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_India/NW18_ENG_India_AS/NW18_ENG_IND_AS_ROS_BTF_728’ > <script> googletag.cmd.push(function () { googletag.display(‘NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_India/NW18_ENG_India_AS/NW18_ENG_IND_AS_ROS_BTF_728′); }); </script> </div></figure><p>The court had noted in its 2018 order that the Centre had in 2007 fixed monthly pension of Rs 200 for persons between the age of 60 and 79 years and Rs 500 for those aged above 80.</p> </article> <div class=”queryvideo” style=”display:none;”>Array<br /> (<br /> )<br /> </div> <div id=”web920x130_ros”></div> <div class=”article-share” style=”border-top: 1px dotted #939393;padding: 10px 0; margin-top: 15px;”> </div> <ul class=”tags-bnow” style=”border-top:none; padding:0px;”> <li><strong>Tags:</strong> <a href=”https://www.news18.com/newstopics/coronavirus.html” title=”coronavirus” class=”bpnon”>coronavirus</a><a href=”https://www.news18.com/newstopics/covid-19.html” title=”covid-19″ class=””>covid-19</a><a href=”https://www.news18.com/newstopics/elderly.html” title=”elderly” class=””>elderly</a><a href=”https://www.news18.com/newstopics/old-people.html” title=”old people” class=””>old people</a><a href=”https://www.news18.com/newstopics/supreme-court.html” title=”supreme court” class=””>supreme court</a></li> <li><strong>First Published:</strong> September 7, 2020, 2:33 PM IST</li> </ul> <div class=”OUTBRAIN” data-src=”https://www.news18.com/news/india/sc-grants-4-weeks-to-states-to-file-affidavits-on-plea-seeking-care-of-elderly-amid-covid-19-pandemic-2855961.html” data-widget-id=”AR_1″></div> <script type=”text/javascript” async=”async” src=”//widgets.outbrain.com/outbrain.js”></script> <a href=”https://www.news18.com/news/india/as-india-resume-metro-service-here-are-some-pointers-for-your-next-ride-2855825.html” class=”nxtstory vspacer20″>Next Story</a> </div> </div> <div id=”right”> <script> window.googletag = window.googletag || {cmd: []};<br /> </script> <div style=”margin-top:10px”></div> <div id=’NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_India/NW18_ENG_India_AS/NW18_ENG_IND_AS_ROS_ATF_300’ class=”add expandoad”> <script> googletag.cmd.push(function () { googletag.display(‘NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_India/NW18_ENG_India_AS/NW18_ENG_IND_AS_ROS_ATF_300′); }); </script> </div><style><br /> @media only screen and (max-width:600px){<br /> .whatsappbutton{text-align:center;}<br /> }<br /> @media(min-width:768px){ .whatsappbutton{margin:20px 0;} .whatsappbutton a{display:block;} .expandoad:before, .expandoad:after, .mnone:before, .mnone:after, .whatsappbutton:after, .whatsappbutton:before{content:”;display:block;clear:both;overflow:hidden;visibility:hidden;opacity:0;line-height:0;font-size:0;}<br /> }<br /> </style><br /> <!—-News letter Subscription———–><br /> <div class=”whatsappbutton”> <a href=” https://www.news18.com/daybreak/” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://images.news18.com/static_news18/pix/ibnhome/news18/News18_newsletter_subscription.jpg”> </a><br /> </div><br /> <!—-News letter Subscription———–><br /> <div id=”news18_news18_india_news18_india_internal_news18_india_internal_300x250″ class=”vspacer20″></div><br /> <div style=”clear:both”></div> <div class=”vspacer20 news18-special vwall”> <h2 class=”title”> <span><img src=”https://images.news18.com/static_news18/pix/ibnhome/news18/images/desktop/news18/live-tv-icon.png” alt=””> LIVE TV</span></h2> <figure> <div id=”playerContainer” style=”background:black;height:250px;width:100%”> </div> <script type=”text/javascript” src=”https://content.vidgyor.com/live/midroll/js/vidgyor_livemidroll_n18.min.js”></script> <script type=”text/javascript”> if(typeof VIDGYOR!==’undefined’){ var posterImage = “”; var videoUrl = “”; var channelName = “cnnibn”; //var channelName = “betacnnibn”; var isMute = true; var isAutoplay = true; VIDGYOR.loadPlayer(posterImage,videoUrl,channelName,isMute,isAutoplay); // VIDGYOR.loadPlayer(true,true); // VIDGYOR.loadPlayer(‘CNNIBN’,true,true); }<br /> </script> </figure> </div> <div id=’NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_India/NW18_ENG_India_AS/NW18_ENG_IND_AS_ROS_MTF_300′ class=”vspacer20″> <script> googletag.cmd.push(function () { googletag.display(‘NW18_ENG_Desktop/NW18_ENG_India/NW18_ENG_India_AS/NW18_ENG_IND_AS_ROS_MTF_300’); }); </script> </div><div class=”recomeded-story vspacer20″> <h2 class=”title vspacer20″><span>Recommended For You</span></h2> <ul> <li><a href=”https://www.news18.com/news/buzz/is-akshay-kumars-fau-g-game-poster-copied-from-stock-image-twitter-wants-to-know-2851743.html” title=”Is Akshay Kumar’s ‘FAU-G’ Game Poster ‘Copied’ from Stock Image?
