"Indian Gerontological Association is a non-profit organisation devoted to the well being of senior citizens and research on ageing since last 42 years. The Association came into existence in 1967 and was registered in 1968-69 (Reg.No. 212) under the Rajasthan Societies Registration Act. It is also affiliated to International Association of Gerontology.
The need of such an association was anticipated years back and we know how the world over including India, the population of elderly is showing an upward trend. Since this ever-increasing group of population has its own problems in different walks of life it becomes imperative for any balanced and stable society to be concerned about them. And much more importantly any progressive society would like to be enriched by the experience and expertise which only age and time can give. The basic aim of the association therefore, is to plan and execute comprehensive strategies, in order to make elderly live a meaningful life.
