About us

Do you know that about 80 million or nearly 8% of our population are above 60 years of age and the figure is likely to touch the magic 100 million mark in another decade? Even this conservative estimate about the senior citizens in our country has not been enough to rouse the authorities from their slumber over the years. Very little has been done to alleviate their plight, officially or unofficially, socially or financially.

To make presence felt by those who matter, Indian Association of Retired Persons {IARP} was formed in this city of Kolkata in December 1997, with the sole objective of uniting those whose voice were being lost in the "more important" din and bustle of the society. (The idea was first mooted by our founder President Dr. Sisir Kumar Dutta, on the basis of his experience during his long stay abroad. On his return home, he lost no time to get in touch with his like -minded friends, explained to them the idea behind and convinced them. And the result was the birth of IARP! The memorable day was 20th December, 1997. Since then we have been holding our office with the sole objective to serve the society in our humble capacity.

Our office runs on all working days (except Sundays) from 11a.m. to 5 p.m.

From 1997, IARP has come a long way and the journey is still on. Meanwhile, it has spread its wings different directions like Medical, Social Cultural, Legal fields etc. all through its main office, a number of chapters in this city and resident member representatives in many cities of India. The nucleus that was formed with a handful of members in 1997, can now boast of about 3000 members (including Associate, General and Life Members) irrespective of caste, creed or religion.

We are glad to inform our Members that Donations made to the Association shall qualify for Deduction u/s 80G(5)(VI) of the I.T. Act 1961 w.e.f. Assessment Year 2011-2012.
