The Senior Citizens Friends Welfare Association (SCFWA) , Kerala State Committee has called upon its units to organised massive dharnas in front of major Railway Stations in the state on 23rd December protesting against the withdrawal of the concessions granted to the senior citizens in the train fare. Women above the age of 58 were granted 50% concession and men above the age of 60 were granted 40% concession.

The withdrawal is completely anti- age old people. Strong protests are being made by senior citizens. The government should restore the concession in full.
