    This Govt only works for moneybags and squeezes middle class, senior citizens, and ignored the poor.

    Why our government is taking such a big step? you can further reduce some points on it. my suggestion is that to stop pensions and other facilities to all MP’s and MLA’s those who are above poverty line and utilize the amount on bpl families and sanitation.

  3. Janakumar Jain says:

    It is high time RBI and Finance ministry look into senior citizens. The interest rates offered in various saving scheme and withdrawal conditions and taxation does not realy towards the welfare of them.

  4. Mitra says:

    6.85% IS TOO MUCH !! WHY NOT MAKE IT ZERO TO HELP SENIOR CITIZENS WHO ARE BEING CONSIDERED AS WORSE THAN BEGGERS IN PRESENT REGIME.
    MONEY SAVED BY THE GOVERNMENT CAN BE UTILISED FOR YOUR PERSONAL AMENITIES AND SECURITY !!!
