The Social Justice and Empowerment Ministry has proposed widening the definition of children to include sons-in-law and daughters-in-law through amendments in an act on the welfare of senior citizens. Currently, the term includes only sons, daughters, and grandchildren. The ministry also wants to remove the cap on the maintenance payable to elderly.
