Oldage is an indispensable stage of life of a human being which a man cannot refute except untimely death. The childhood and oldage are natural reliant conditions of life where children depend on parents and vice-versa. The concept of nuclear family affected this usual cycle resulting in misbalance of the normal life of elderly people by defeating thousand years old practice of India where parents are treated as a pious form of God. Nowadays, the parents are becoming burdensome for their child whenever they lost their strength to work and earn. Available legal, social, moral and governmental norms are analyzed in this research paper to find out the possible ways by which elderly people’s human rights are infringed and they bound to suffer pain and agony. This research paper also reflects the available laws, policies and guidelines for the protection of the rights of oldage person in India.
