Central scheme for senior citizens launched in Gujarat
02 September 2017 Current Affairs: Union minister Thaawarchand Gehlot launched a scheme that provides for physical aids and assisted-living devices for senior citizens belonging to the BPL category.

The centrally-sponsored scheme, `Rashtriya Vayoshri Yojana', was unveiled on April 1 this year and since then it has already been launched in Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Maharashtra.

Under the scheme, devices were distributed to senior citizens free of cost.
