Let The Healthy Keep Work­ing

This re­fers to ‘FDs? Grandpa Needs More’ by TK Arun (Aug 9). It raises gen­uine concerns faced by the age­ing pop­u­la­tion of the coun­try. With FD rates go­ing down and or­di­nary peo­ple hav­ing lim­ited knowl­edge of other fi­nan­cial in­stru­ments, it be­comes dif­fi­cult for them to earn extra in­come. The open­ing of NPS Tier 2 ac­count for peo­ple above 60 is a pol­icy sug­ges­tion do­ing the rounds. That’s sen­si­ble. For a bet­ter liv­ing, the gov­ern­ment should also con­sider re­tain­ing pro­duc­tive em­ploy­ees be­yond su­per­an­nu­a­tion if their health per­mits them to work. This is good for the econ­omy as well.
