The Tamil Nadu Senior Citizens’ Association (TANSECA) is an organisation committed to the welfare of senior citizens living in Tamil Nadu, constantly striving for the fulfillment of their aspirations for a better quality of life. The association which started as pensioners’ organization in 1987 widened its objective in 1991 and changed itself into a senior citizens’ forum. The association, with over 2000 members, is now celebrating its Silver Jubilee.
While providing a platform for all senior citizens to come together and mutually benefit from the rich experience possessed by each of them, it also enables them to agitate for their rights and privileges. The association acts as a powerful vehicle to carry all the important issues concerning the senior citizens to various authorities functioning under the State and Central Governments.
Photo identity cards issued by the Association to its members enable them, along with their spouses, to enjoy various kinds of concessions from doctors, nursing homes, hospitals, diagnostic centres and chemists.
When it comes to commuting by trains, the Indian Railways provides a flat 40% rebate for male senior citizens (60 and above) and 50% rebate for female senior citizens. This includes Sleeper Class, First Class, Air Conditioned (AC) Chair and First Class AC in all trains including Shatabdi and Rajdhani Expresses.
