New Delhi: Beware if you are planning to grab the property of your older parents and evicting them from the house. The Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government is mulling to amend laws that will prosecute people for evicting parents from the property.

The government is planning to bring in changes to ‘UP Maintenance of parents and senior citizens rules 2014′ wherein the older parents’ children could be punished for evicting them from their property.

The Uttar Pradesh Law Commission has prepared an amended draft and sent it to the state government.

The maintenance rules for the parents were prepared in 2014 but there were not enough provisions for protection for the property of senior citizens from their children.

The court judgments have indicated that many senior citizens are evicted from their properties by their children. These judgments were studied by the law commission and found out that the previous rules did not provide full protection to the older parents or senior citizens.

The government is expected to decide on these recommendations soon.
