UP govt may give senior citizens right to legally evict non supportive children

The Uttar Pradesh government is considering empowering parents and senior citizens with the legal right to evict family members who are not contributing to their financial well-being.

The proposed amendment to the state rules, which falls under the Central government’s Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007, is currently under review by the state Cabinet.

The amendments aim to give senior citizens the authority to remove non-supportive children or relatives from their homes, a media report said while quoting Minister of State for Social Welfare, Asim Arun.

“We are bringing in changes that will effectively give senior citizens the right to evict their children or relatives from their house if the children or relatives are not giving them money for their livelihood,” the minister added.

Senior citizens have the option to file complaints with local tribunals, headed by sub-divisional magistrates under the current rules.

These tribunals, upon receiving complaints, facilitate reconciliation attempts between the parties involved, with a subsequent order for children to financially support their parents. However, the proposed amendments take it a step further by granting senior citizens the authority to forcibly evict non-compliant family members.

According to media reports, the proposal has faced some scrutiny during recent Cabinet meetings.  

The local tribunal will have the power to order the eviction of children or relatives without the need for court intervention if the amendments get clearance.
