The government of India has launched a welfare scheme under the name of Rashtriya Vayoshri Yojana of which physical aid and devices will be provided to senior citizens of the nation, who come from the poor and backwards parts of the country. The scheme was launched by the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi to benefit every senior citizen who needs some kind of medical life support for their day to day living. The government has also selected a list of cities where the RVY scheme would be implemented. Under the RVY scheme, the central government has also picked two major cities of Tamil Nadu-Kanya Kumari and Chennai. The Pradhan Mantri Yojana will be funded by the central government entirely and will benefit near about 5 lakh 20 thousand old aged citizens throughout all the states.
