Communist China is providing its senior citizens, those who are above 60, with GPS enabled bracelets so that they can contact their family when they are lost or their family can track them down when they are missed. There is provision in the bracelet to make phone call to the family.

In China, there are about 22.2 crore senior citizens above 60 years, out of a total population of 138 crore. It is reported that on an average, 1,370 senior citizens are going missing every day. Hence this new method to find them is arranged, which will help lost people to be found.

In this connection, it will not be out of place to mention that in large metro cities like Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai etc. a large number of senior citizens are lost every day. Some arrangements, as made in China, will be helpful in their cases.
