Senior Citizen May Claim Right of Exclusive Residence Even If ‘Right’ Or ‘Interest’ Is Lower Than an Exclusive Ownership Right: Delhi High Court

[19 July 2022] The Delhi High Court has observed that under the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007, a senior citizen may claim a right of exclusive residence even though he or she may only be able to establish a “right” or “interest” in such property, even if such right or interest be lower than an exclusive ownership right.

“Ultimately, the authorities under the Act are obliged to take into consideration the mental and physical well-being and security of the senior citizens and pass appropriate orders of protection bearing in mind the predominant purpose of the Act,” Justice Yashwant Varma added.
