    MUMBAI: The finance department has rejected a proposal to reduce the age from 65 to 60 to avail of senior citizen status and get state government concessions. But social justice minister Rajkumar Badole has written to chief minister Devendra Fadnavis to look into the matter.
    The social justice department had decided to reduce the age limit but it was shot down by the finance departing to avoid an additional burden on the state treasury. There are 1.5 crore senior citizens in the state and the number will go up by about 25 lakh the moment the state clears the proposal. Government data shows it will mean an additional burden of up to Rs 650 crore per annum. “Although it’s a good proposal, the state’s unhealthy financial condition is the key reason for its rejection,” said a senior official. ”

    I am confused is it 60 or 65 years?
