Police and Public Order are State subjects under the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution of India.

The State Governments are competent to deal with such offences under the extant provisions of laws. Government accords utmost priority to the safety of Senior Citizens. The Ministry of Home Affairs has issued two detailed advisories dated 27.03.2008 and 30.08.2013 to all State Governments/UTs advising them to take immediate measures to ensure safety and security and for elimination of all forms of neglect, abuse and violence against old persons through initiatives such as identification of senior citizens, sensitization of police personnel regarding safety, security of older persons, regular visit of the best staff; setting up of toll free senior citizen helpline; setting up of senior citizen security cell; verification of domestic helps, drivers etc.

The Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens (MWPSC) Act, 2007 prescribes that State Governments are to develop a Comprehensive Action Plan for protection of life and property of senior citizens.

This information was given by Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Dr. Virendra Kumar in the Lok Sabha in a written reply today.
