Mr.R.K.Singh, Adv.
Mr.Abhinav Sharma, Adv.
Mr.Kumar Gaurav, Adv.
Mr. Rameshwar Prasad Goyal,A.O.R.

UPON hearing counsel the Court made the following
O R D E R
Issue notice, returnable in ten weeks.
Shri R.K.Singh, learned co

unsel accepts notice on behalf
of the respondents.
In the meanwhile, the proceedings pending before the High
Court under the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 shall remain stayed
subject to the condition that within eight weeks from today, the
petitioner shall deposit in the Registry of the High Court the
amount due to the employees.

(Satish K.Yadav) (Phoolan Wati Arora)
Court Master Court MasterSU







Supreme Court is very clear in its order that the petitioner (LIC) shall deposit in the Registry of High Court the amount due to the employees but it appears certain developments have taken place in Supreme Court and the Petitioners have taken the plea that contempt of court will rise only when a fixed amount is quantified as not paid.  In our case the amount payable to the pensioners is not clear and LIC, it appears, is not prepared to make calculations and arrive at the amount. Points involved are purely legal.


 


 


The contempt petition is now withdrawn with permission to seek clarification of the order dated 14-11-2011 (reproduced above) from Supreme Court itself.  A revised petition is being filed for this purpose.

CONTEMPT PETITION - ARGUMENTS HEARD IN SC


Contempt petition filed in the Supreme Court came up before the Supreme Bench for arguments.  Advocate appearing in the Court on behalf of Life Insurance Corporation of India argued that there was  no contempt at all as there was no specific amount arrived at as due to the pensioners. Since the amount to be deposited is not quantified, it could not be presumed that there was any contempt of any order of the Court.


The Senior Advocate appearing for the petitioners argued that the amount could be arrived at by LIC as all the data required for calculation was available with LIC and it was up to LIC to decide the quantum.


Court heard these arguments and adjourned the case.  Decision of the Court could be  expected any time now.
