  • Wonderful vision. Though it’s much lower amount to meet the needs in this highly inflated era but still encouraging initiative. As it progress further appreciation would depends where stipend amount increased gradually to meet average needs of elder class plus subsidy in elder specific expenses like typically medical expense and general health issues. This will increase per person budget under this programme financially and non financially in total.
