CHENNAI: The Senior Citizens Group of Besantnagar (SCGOBN) and the Rotary Club of Madras Mount have jointly organised a free legal aid camp to help senior citizens combat land grabbing.
The legal aid panel will be headed by Retired Judge Vallinayagam and will include other eminent lawyers. The camp will be held on March 4 at Haddows Club, Nungambakkam between 3pm and 5pm. Senior citizens can attend with two copies of their case, one of which will be sent to the Chief Minister, a press release said.
While entry is free, senior citizens need to register by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The association recently held a discussion among senior citizens on the land grab issues. The most common land grab instances highlighted by the senior citizens ranged from instances of blocking sections of residential roads by erecting religious idols, large builders encroaching lands despite the actual owners having pacca documents and long pending cases despite registering an FIR against land grabbers.
