Recently, one person was admitted to a nursing home due to severe chest pain. He had an earlier attack in 1997 and was under treatment. The doctors now suggested Angiography.
  • Upon undergoing Angiography, Doctors diagnosed multiple blockages for which Angioplasty was ruled out and instead, suggested 'Bypass Surgery'.
  • That evening, he was brought home as doctor suggested his heart being very weak, bypass can be performed only after 15 - 20 days.
  • Meanwhile, whilst discussing the matter with relatives and close friends, fresh information came from a family friend.
  • A new treatment known as  ChelationTherapy has been introduced into the Indian medical theatre.
  • With this therapy, a patient who has to undergo by-pass need not do so.
  • Instead, the patient is given about 18 bottles of blood in which certain medicaments are injected. The blood cleans the system and removes all blockages from the heart and arteries. The number of bottles given may increase depending upon the age-factor and health of patient.
  • Cost per bottle may be around Rs.2,500/- Treatment takes about a month.Currently, only a few doctors in India specialise in this field.


I reproduce an article on the subject which deals with latest research made on the subject.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM


Subject : Order dated 20.11.2013 of the High Court of Kolkata in Writ Petition No. 33290 of 2013 in the case of Mr. Avishek Goenka Vs Union of India regarding personal details of RT] applicants ~ circulation of.

In compliance of the directions of the Hon'bie High Court of Kolkata in its said order, a copy of the judgement (order) is enclosed herewith for appropriate action.

2. This may be brought to the notice of all concerned.



20.1]. 2013
w.P. sazeom) of 2013

Mr. Avishek Goenka petitioner (in person).
Mr. Asish Kumar Roy,

Ms. Gargi Mukherjee For the respondents.

The petitioner is appearing in person.

The writ petitioner claiming to be an activist in the field of right to information, has approached us by filing the present writ petition with the prayer, the authority should not insist upon the detailed address of the applicant as and when any application is made under the Right to Information Act. He apprehends, the interested parties would cause a threat to the activist and in fact there had been past incidents of unnatural deaths of activist in the field, presumably by the interested persons having vested interest to conceal the information that is asked for by the activist.

The petitioner submits, the authority may not insist upon the detailed address particularly when the applicant would provide a particular post box number that would automatically conceal their identity to the public at large.

We have considered the relevant provisions of the statute. Section 6(2) of the Right to Information Act, 2005 would clearly provide, an applicant making request for information shall not be required to give any reason for requesting the information or any other personal details except contacting him.

those that may be necessary for -
Looking to the said provision, we find logic in the submission of the petitioner. When the legislature thought it fit, the applicant need not disclose any personal detail, the authority should not insist upon his detailed whereabouts particularly when post box number is provided for that would establish contact with him and the authority.
In case, the authority would find any difficulty with the post box number, they may insist upon personal details. However, in such case, it would be the solemn duty of the authority to hide such information and particularly from their website so that people at large would not know of the details.

We thus dispose of this writ petition by making the observations as above. The Secretary, Ministry of Personnel should circulate the copy of this order to all concerned so that the authority can take appropriate measure to hide information with regard to personal details of the activist to avoid any harassment by the persons having vested interest.

The writ petition is disposed of without any order as to costs. Urgent certified copy of this order, if applied for, be given to the parties, on priority basis.

It is a very laudable effort on the part of the three different pensioners Associations of the nationalised banks sinking the egos and dogmas keeping in view ONLY THE WELFARE OF ALL THE BANK PENSIONERS paramount. 

We do not know the amount of hard and tireless home work put in by the Leaders in garnering the support of all the three Associations for the common cause which I believe will definitely bring about very good results for the benefit of all the Bank Pensioners. This is certainly worthy of emulation by our own Associations.

I only wish and request the worthy Leaders of the three LIC Pensioners Associations to initiate such a laudable move in our industry for the common welfare of all LIC Pensioners before long.

We wish to inform you that we have finalised the joint memorandum and signed it along with the above referred two retiree organisations at Delhi on 16th April 2014. The same will be submitted to Banking Secretary, IBA and UFBU and further joint follow-up will be done as and when needed .

DOCTOR AND THE PATIENT


A Doctor opened a Clinic and wrote outside the Clinic: Any treatment: Rs.100 only. Rs.200 returned if patient not cured."





A Patient came with  intent of fraud and get Rs.200
from the Doctor. 

He said "Doctor, I can't feel any taste on my tongue”.
Doctor asked the Nurse to put few drops of medicine from box No 22.

After that, the Patient shouted: "Oh my God, its very bitter”.
lost!
Doctor said : “Congratulations ! Your sense of taste is back now”.
The Patient was sad, he lost Rs.100.

After two weeks, Patient came back again, hoping to play the trick and get Rs.200.

Patient: "Doctor I have lost my memory." 
Doctor: "Nurse! Please put some drops of medicine from Box No 22 on his tongue”.
Patient: "Wait doctor, but that medicine is for sense of taste”.
Doctor: "Congratulations ! your memory is back again”.

is, by and large, a carbon copy of the RBI pension 
scheme, the pattern of up-dation accepted there
may be made applicable to us also, writes

Dear All

You may perhaps be surprised to receive this mail from me, as it is a slight departure from the tradition of receiving communication from the General Secretary or other functionaries. But I thought there was a need to share my thought process given the importance of the issue on hand.

The Pension issue has come to the fore once again ever since the Governor called the United Forum for a meeting last week. There has been a wide spectrum of opinions on the issue, not very often driven by practicality, rationale and common sense. I do see a streak of high emotions, sometimes bordering on dogmatism not to see the writing on the wall. I thought it was time to add my perspective to the issue. While I do not expect that everybody should subscribe to this perspective, I feel it is time for each of us to ponder over the issue.

At the outset, we need no appreciate that this issue has been evading solution for a long time thanks to the historical ‘baggage of commissions and omissions. We did garner quite a bit of support from our Central Board members as well as Top management thanks to the orderly and disciplined manner in which we conducted our silent protests just ahead of our Central Board meetings in the last couple of years. While a good number of Central Board members were sympathetic to our cause, the issue remained unresolved thanks to the intransigence of the GoI nominees on our Board.

The issue got a fresh lease of life with our present Governor taking the bold initiative of breaching it directly with the Finance Minister at the Delhi board Meeting. This has brought forth the present offer from the GoI although it does look quite fuzzy. Governor mentioned during the meeting with the United Forum that this was about the best that he could get but the fuzziness of the conditionalities does leave scope for squeezing the best out of the offer.
What has been majorly agitating the minds of our officers are: 1. the frequency of wage agreement for the serving officers, 2. the definition of pay for the purpose of pension and 3. rationalisation of perks for serving officers. The condition of updation being done once in 10 years has not met with much criticism, so I am leaving it out of the present discussion.

On the frequency of wage agreement, I am not at all convinced that a wage agreement once in 5 years is necessarily more beneficial than a wage agreement once in 10 years. Why are we refusing to look at the magnitude of wage revision? Are we better off with a wage revision of 15 to 16% hike once in 5 years than, say, 40 to 50% in 10 years? The numbers that I have quoted here are not out of alignment with what we have been getting in the past and the G0I officers have been getting out of Pay Commissions once in 10 years. In fact, I feel our emphasis should be on the quantum of hikes (which is a clear function of our strength, bargaining capacity as also the image of the organisation) rather than the frequency of wage revision. Just to exercise our minds more on this subject, are we going to be happy if we are offered pay revisions once every two years with a hike of 5%? So, basically, it is not the frequency which matters but the extent of hikes.

Also, let us not forget that the perks have been revised reasonably more frequently as and when the conditions of the economy underwent changes and these perks have enhanced the quality of our living conditions. There is no reason to fear that the independence of the Governor is going to be curtailed in the matter of perks. Given the increasing stature of Central Banks, I doubt if any Government can curtail the independence of the Governor in times to come. 
Now, coming to the question of definition of pay, we need to be realistic. lf basic pay and grade pay are reckoned for fixing the pension, the larger components are already taken and what get left out are the much smaller components. I have done some calculations in this regard and I find that the components that get left out actually constitute just about 5 % of the basic + grade pay. Of course, this percentage could vary from officer to officer depending upon his basic pay and grade pay at the time of his retirement. We need to weigh this loss against the gain arising out of updation of our pay once in 10 years, which could be as much as 100%. I think we need to ponder over this quite dispassionately.


Third is the matter of perks. There is a fear (may be, legitimate) that rationalisation of perks means reduction and nothing else. lf we compare our perks today with the industry or with GoI (where a Joint Secretary gets car with unlimited petrol), nobody can say that RBI 's perk structure is far superior to others. We are just comparable to others and not certainly better off. I am told that many Oil companies have better perk structure compared to RBI but this needs to be verified. But if at all there is a pressure to show rationalisation, we can always give up the smaller ones like newspaper, brief case, specs, book grant, etc. and tell the Government that we have rationalised and focus on improving the larger components (in the present pay revision due from Nov. 2012). This certainly is largely dependent on our capacity to do homework and engaging in constant dialogue with the Governor in future. 


I certainly do not subscribe to the idea that the Central Government will keep interfering, in future, with the process of determination of our perks. Let us not, in any case, be submerged in imaginary fears that the Central Government is the personification of Takru and vice versa!!.

Given this backdrop, if we are slamming the door closed on this present offer and reject it outright, let us be clear about what we are in for:
1. There is no way that this issue will come up for the next , at least, one year, as the new Government (if it is stable) will have so many items on its plate that this will, if at all, be the last item in their agenda.
2. We will lose the sympathy of our Central Board members.
3. The Top management may not evince me same enthusiasm to take up the issue in future as they have done so far.
In my view, therefore, a more prudent and strategic course, would be to accept the offer saying that we would like to have a dialogue with the Governor on the nature of conditionalities and their implementation. I am aware that you will ask the question that this will tantamount to a break-off with United Forum. Not necessarily. We can convince them as they do not have much stake in the form of perks. But if they are not to be convinced, perhaps, we may have to chalk out our own path. Let us be clear here.
I have told Mr. Vatsa that we can have a meeting of the Committee with all the units participating, shortly in the second week of April, say around April 10th. In the meantime, let me have your dispassionate views on the subject.
Best regards

PROPOSALS FOR PENSION UPGRADATION IN RBI

VERY IMPORTANT 
Pension Upgradation
RBI MLY HM HITGUJ: APRIL 2014

At long last, Government accorded in principle approval for updation of pension with certain conditonalities which is a positive and encouraging development.


The proposals are as under:
1. Pension updation once in 10 years as in Government,
2. Pension to be computed on pay and grade pay as in
Government ( this will require amendment to Pension Regulations),
3. Revision of pay scales once in 10 years,
4. All perks to be rationalised,
5. Pension option to be opened alongside.
This is a package

The Forum expressed their reservations and apprehensions. There is at present stalemate. Our Association sought audience with Shri R L Das, CGM, HRDM, for an update, on 19-03-2014. It emerged from the discussions that Govt. has accepted in principle that there is need for updation in RBI and the pension is expected to be aligned with the revision of pay scales effective from 1-11-2012 which is expected to result in same rank same pension. This information will be simulated. CGM also indicated that RBI can act within the provisions of RBI ACT, to take care of any misalignment with the Govt. salary and the Banking industry. CGM also told that the GOVERNOR was instrumental in breaking the ice on updation which was eluding for 6 long years.

CGM also assured that representatives of our Association will be invited for discussions on matters concerning pensioners / retirees whenever occasion arises.


To the question WHY PARLEYS?
the answer is: WHY NOT PARLEYS!

If the leaders of Pensioners Associations cannot meet, the minimum requirement is that the senior counsels meet and discuss a common strategy before the Supreme Court bench.

Ramadevan, Cbe.

SHED ALL OUR DIFFERENCES

Dear Editor,

  • This refers to Shri Mahadevan's suggestion that the three sets of original pensioners confer and put up a united/identical prayer before SC on 12-8-2014 needs immediate attention and response. 
  • The fact that Shri Asthana has received a stunning and voluminous counter from the respondent Corporation running into  a marathon 478 pages only goes to indicate that LIC is going hammer and tongue and marshaling all their resources  to get their stand vindicated in SC on the eventful day of 12TH AUGUST.
  • Shedding all our differences, bickering and prestige it would be appropriate, as the situation demands to get the counter affidavit of LIC examined by those pensioners who are practicing in the bar and by other hand picked who are versatile in legal knowledge an at the same time keeping in mind the age old adage " Too many cooks spoil the broth " Shri Asthana should take a lead in this.
R.K.Viswanathan
Hearty congratulations. 

(Readers requested not to write any more appreciation letters. 
Thank you for ur encouragement and good wishes. Ed.)
  • I am glad everybody realized they have to rely on LIC Pensioners Chronicle for information sharing. 
  • Your strength is your objectivity and neutrality. 
  • The momentum of visiting the chronicle will be a wave hereafter. God bless you.

FOCUS SHIFTED TO SUPREME COURT



As per compliance of Supreme Court Order dated 4th April, 2014, entire focus of all L.I.C. Pensioners has now shifted to 12.08.2014 at Supreme Court. Fully endorsing views of our stalwart Sh. C.H. Mahadevan, it is high time or virtually a last chance for all Legal Experts amongst our community pertaining to all camps to please rise above petty things forgetting unpleasantness of past, if any and make full use of this crucial moment for which lot of preparation has to be done much before D-Date.

My humble prayers to all legal experts like S/Sh. R.B. Kishore, C.H.Mahadevan, P.P. Dhamija, Sreenivasa Murty, K.M.L. Asthana and all others who have contributed a lot till date and their contribution is also visible on LIC Pensioners Chronicle read by more than two lac readers like me in just last five months.

My special Thanks to Sh.P.G.Gangadharan for providing all of us a wonderful platform. Mission Unity or Joint Legal Battle on 12.08.2014 is the only way to our final victory.

With my Thanks and Regards for all experts in our community,

YOU BE THE JUDGE !

pensioners may send comments...
It will be an excellent strategy if the Senior counsel of all the three sets of original petitioners confer and put up a united/identical prayer before SC on 12/8/2014 for directing LIC to implement the respective High Court judgments which have been refused to be stayed by the Supreme Court. But the efforts have to be started immediately.
Kind regards.

YES, DEAR SH MAHADEVAN,

AT THE SAME TIME, SINCE ALL THE THREE HC JUDGEMENTS ARE BASED UPON JAIPUR WHERE SH KML ASTHANA, UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF PERSONS LIKE YOU, SH RBK, VC JAIN,AIRIEF, TR MADHAVA RAO, CS MURTY & OTHERS, HAS REMAINED THE ARCHITECT AND CRUSADOR, NEED FULL CO-OPERATION OF OTHERS PARTICULARLY  FED. OF CL I OFFICERS ASSN. AND IN MY OPINION SH. M SREENIVASA MURTY CAN PLAY A POSITIVE ROLE AS SUGGESTED BY SH RB KISHORE ALSO. FOR PB & HRY HC SH. ASTHANA IS ALREADY  WELL SEIZED OF THE CASE & HE MUST BE BUSY BURNING MID NIGHT OIL IN PREPARING REPLY TO 478 PAGES NOTICE RECEIVED BY HIM AND OTHERS ON 10.4.2014 IN THE CAs.

IT IS THUS FOR ALL THE LEADERS OF THE TWO FEDs. TO APPRECIATE THE  GRAVITY/IMPORTANCE OF SC  CLUBBING & LISTING CAs  ON 12.8.14, AND ALL THE PENSIONERS IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR CLASS, CADRE OR AFFILIATION  MUST, AS EVER, CONTINUE THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE LEGAL FUND TO HELP AIRIEF & SH ASTHANA TO FEEL ENCOURAGED AND WITH RENEWED VIGOUR  & RESOLVE
GET  SJ JAIPUR HISTORIC JUDGEMENT DATED 12.1.10 ALLOWING BOTH THE WRITS ON  UPGRADATION AND DA ANOMALY  IMPLEMENTED IN LETTER AND SPIRIT, BESIDES PB & HRY HC ORDERING 12% INTEREST AND DELHI HC "REM".

IT IS NOTWITHSTANDING THE TWO WRITS FILED BY SH ASTHANA & AIRIEF IN RAJASTHAN HC JAIPUR WHICH ARE LISTED FOR 30.4.14/3.5.14 AND THE OUTCOME/ORDERS OF HC JAIPUR WILL HAVE A DIRECT IMPACT ON CAs IN THE SUPREME COURT. HATS OFF TO SH ASTHANA FOR HIS  RELENTLESS DETERMINATION & COMMITMENT DESPITE ILL HEALTH AND ODDS. WE WISH HIM  ALL THE BEST & GOOD HEALTH.

Dear Sir,
Through the all important and popular LIC PENSIONERS' CHRONICE which is no doubt rendering great service at this crucial juncture, I would like to make a humble appeal to different Units and active members of Pensioners fraternity who are also exchanging mails on important issues facing us today.

I would request them all to check their mailing lists. They have picked up addresses from different mails on different subjects which we send to each other.
These also contain the names of friends and relatives of the sender who are NOT CONNECTED WITH LIC who quite often write to us.

It will not be an easy exercise and will need some efforts from all of us. From now onward when we receive a mail, we should ourselves scan the mailing list, identify such names  known to us who are not connected with LIC. We should send the list to the sender for rectification of their Mailing List.

Let us all co-operate so that mail box of our friends and relatives is not loaded with mails which are of no interest to them.
With greetings,
S.P.SOOD
