How to obtain Senior Citizen Cards (for men and women, aged 60 and above)

Method 1:

I found this mobile number on Quikr mfor obtaining Senior Citizen Cards in the J P Nagar area: +91 9945837981.

I called the number and after a while, the person called back. He wanted me to keep ready three passport photos, and the xerox of ONE of the following:

  • Aadhar Card
  • Voter Id
  • Driving licence
  • Passport

He said that someone would come and collect these, and also bring the Senior Citizen card to my address.

Method 2:

The alternative is going to the BJP Office in Jayanagar

  • Address:“Shasakara Kacheri”, 18th Main, 35th Cross, 4th ‘T’ Block, Jayanagar, Bengaluru 560 011.
  • Contact – 9341906517, 9449156115 or Siddaraju  on  99018 37937

You can see the BJP Office site here:

The difference between the two methods

The BJP office, which is doing this as a free service, and says that the card can be obtained in two weeks (I got the card without charge but it took a month.) . The person whom I talked to at the first contact number (Method 1), asked for a fee of Rs 250, and said that getting the card would take a month.

So I am getting my Senior Citizen card from the BJP office, as I do not see why I should pay Rs 250. However, if someone is immobile, Method 1 may be a better option.

I have now got my Senior Citizen card and must find out what benefits I will get as a result!

    Senior Citizen Cards can also be obtained from Nightingales – who are Government Authorised. All details are in the link below. This sounds more reliable to me.

Nature Feature: A dinner invitation

"Will you walk into my parlour?" Said the spider to the fly. "I've spread a carpet of silk and diamonds! Walk in, and don't be shy! Do come along, for I grow thinner... I've LOVE to have you, ahem, for dinner!" Jokes apart, Funnel Web Spiders also called Wolf Spiders, are named because of the funnel-like web they weave...and the second name is given because they are ferocious predators. They build a flat sheet of nonsticky web with a funnel-shaped retreat to one side or occasionally in the middle, depending on the situation and species. The typical hunting mode is…

Theatre Review: “Credit Titles” by Bangalore Little Theatre

It was like a rare alignment of the planets: several factors come together to pull me out of my usual Ranga Shankara ambit for watching a play. I had not been to visit Bangalore International Centre, which opened a while ago in Domlur; Bangalore Little Theatre, as part of their "VP 80" festival, was staging "Credit Titles"; the play, written by Vijay Padaki, whose 80th birthday the festival marks, was based on a story by Vinod Vyasulu, an eminent economist whom I've known for a long time, as our daughters share a cose friendship dating from 1988. And last but…
