Older people form an age group in which the increase in number is maximum when compared to younger age groups. By 2050, two billion people — or nearly one out of every four people — will be older than 60 years. 80% of the world's older people will be living in less developed countries, which have consequently less time than developed countries to build the infrastructure to deal with this major social transition. Currently 55 million Indians are aged over 60, projected to rise to 146 million by 2025. India seems ill-equipped to deal with this change. Very few elderly persons are entitled to pension. Most do not have access to health and social care services. Family care for older people is more and more difficult as intergenerational relationships are in transition in the context of rapid social and economic change.
