How to get a Senior Citizen Certificate?

The Government of India provides several facilities for citizens above the age of 60 years. The senior citizen certificate allows citizens to receive numerous benefits like discounts in Railways, Airlines, Bank interest rates and other benefits. For more information on additional benefits refer to Government Gazette or visit http://www.egazette.nic.in/

If a senior citizen does not have any document that can be used as proof of age, he/ she must visit any government hospital in their respective locality e.g. St.George Hospital, J.J.
