Senior Citizens Id Card



Through a GR dated Sept 24, 2001 and several other successive GRs, Dignity Foundation was empowered to issue the Senior Citizen ID card in Maharashtra with certain guidelines issued for documentation and verification of data provided by the senior citizen. The senior citizen ID Card helps senior citizens avail the benefits of various government schemes. It also is an important aid for senior citizens as it carries details of their blood group, allergies, ailment and medication and also an emergency contact. Dignity has around 172 centres across Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra for facilitating the issuance of Senior Citizen ID Cards.
