House passes bill requiring kids to care for parents or else they wouldn’t be able to get ancestral property.
The House of Representatives (HoR) has passed an amendment bill on the act related to the senior citizens with a provision allowing local bodies to take over ownership of properties of the senior citizens if their children, family members, relatives and claimants do not care for them.
The bill states that the local bodies will mobilize the properties taken over to care for the senior citizens.
The bill passed by the National Assembly in February 2075 was passed by the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
However, the local bodies, however, cannot force the children who have not been provided education and properly raised to care for their parents.
The local bodies and provincial government will have to operate old-age homes once the new law comes into effect.
