A monthly income from National Savings Scheme’s Behbood Certificates is the lifeline of many senior citizens, retired government employees and other pensioners as only those who are above sixty years of age can invest in this scheme. The present limit of investment per individual is Rs3 million.
In view of the rising cost of living, and in the absence of other sources of income for such people, I request the government to increase this limit to Rs5 million per person in the upcoming budget.
