    6.6.1 Analysis of trends in coverage of pensions



Figure 15   displays the districts with high and low coverage of pensions (w.r.t estimated
elderly population in the districts) together with the average coverage of
beneficiaries at the state level. It shows that the districts of Ramnagara, Bijapur,
Chamarajanagar, Gadag and Koppal display highest coverage rates (more than 65%
of projected elderly population in each district). Further, the districts of Dakshina
Kannada, Bangalore Urban, Udupi and Shimoga have comparatively low coverage
rates. Table 21 displays taluks that have high and low coverage rates.
