Grants (funds) for Old Age Homes in India (2008-09)

Government of India gives financial assistance (grants / funds) to NGOs who run Homes for the Elderly (Old Age Homes) in India. This grant-in-aid is to provide food, shelter, care, recreation facilities, etc. to the inmates of these Homes.

To become eligible for receiving grant-in-aid there should be a minimum of 25 destitute older persons in the Old Age Home. If the home is larger in size (say for 150 or 75 or 50 beneficiaries), the grant-in-aid for maintenance of such old age homes is sanctioned on a proportionate basis.

The break up of maximum funds provided by Government for operation and maintenance of such homes is 90% of the amount specified in the given table. The balance of 10% of the cost is to be borne by the NGO / Old Age Home itself.

    Dear Sir,

    I am Dr. BS Pandey(44yrs). I am an ENT Surgeon by profession. I am interested in starting an exemplary and outstanding Old age home in Jaipur city for our neglected senior citizens. My father is a retired and learned Social welfare Officer with good experience and knowledge who can help me fulfilling this dream project. Seeing the condition of existing Govt. run OAH I have got this inspiration to give the society a gift of such Old age home which can take care of all the needs of them like Health, Entertainment and Spirituality on an honest and no profit basis where young generation don’t have to feel guilty or ashamed leaving their parents in this home so that they can contribute more effectively in building the nation’s future. I want to dedicate rest of my life in their service.

    I request you to kindly guide me how to go about it and how our govt. can help me providing me adequate Land in Jaipur city and funds for the maintenance.

    I assure you that I will take care of any kind of misuse by keeping all the important rights in my hand and justifying them at any point of time.

  50. Hi, I can see that lot of people are asking for fund and land for Old Age home. I am requesting to all organizations that whoever is proving fund or land for these people, please do a extensive enquiry for that person. Is that person is taking care of his own old parents or belongings? How is that person behavior for his surrounding old people?
    My opinion is that if we can take care of our old parents and surrounding people, then we have no need for Old Age Home. So we have to develop a society who can do survey and find out that who is not taking care of their own parents and why? And give some solution to them. This will make our society healthy. So please plan to do something in this direction rather than providing old age home.
