"One India One Pension" (OIOP) - The new context that deserves people's attention.One India One Pension (OIOP) is a movement coined for a Universal Basic Pension for to each senior citizen of the country. Its a people's movement that focuses on earning Rs.10,000 monthly pension as an income during their old age. It is looking forward to bring in a cathartic change in society through social security to people as seen in other countries.
The present pension scenario stands good only for government servants and MNC or big company employees whereas the middle, poor and private job workers get a minimum amount which is not sufficient even for buying medicines in their old age so how can they manage the expense of their family. Even the other pension schemes run by the state and the central government is an expense but not effectively incorporated or recompense. The data of the senior citizens can be systematized from the Aadhar card data and bring to effect without much nodus.
The One-India, One-Pension(OIOP) concept has triggered in Kerala and is spreading its wings, looking to remove the stress destitution and dependence in old age and make life easier for every senior citizen of our country.
I would like to put forward a few questions in front of our members for your views and thoughts.
1. Do you think One-India, One-Pension(OIOP) concept is worthy?
2. Will it compliment the present Social security schemes or should this be enough?
3. Can this movement help in making life easier for senior citizens?
