LETTERS TO EDITOR



Sir,   
 AFTER HEARING THE SUCCESS  STORY OF  SRI  ASTHANAJI, I  STUDIED  THE L.I.C  ACT  AND  OUR  PENSION  RULES.  I AM CONVINCED  THAT  H.C RAJASTAN  JUDGEMENT  IS  BASED  ON  SOUND  LOGIC  AND  NATURAL  JUSTICE.

I  FEEL  MOST  OF THE  PENSIONERS  DO NOT  KNOW  THE  INJUSTICE  PERPETRATED AGAINST  THEM.  I AM UNABLE TO  UNDERSTAND  WHY  THE  MILITANT  ORGANISATIONS OF L.IC  EMPLOYEES   IGNORED  THE ISSUE  OF IMPLEMENTATION  OF THE  L.I.C. RESOLUTION   FROM NOV.2001  TILL  2007  WHEN  SRI ASTHANA  INITIATED  THE  LEGAL BATTLE  AT  JAIPUR,  MORE SO WHEN  THE PENSION RULES  THEMSELVES  PROVIDED FOR UPDATION  UNDER  RULE 56.    
I MUST THANK SRI GANGADHARAN  FOR  GIVING  ME THE  OPPORTUNITY  TO EXPRESS MY  VIEWS  THROUGH HIS  BLOG .   KINDLY  FEEL  FREE TO COMMENT ON  MY  VIEWS  SO THAT  WE DISCUSS.  NOW  I  FEEL  THERE  IS  URGENT  NEED  TO  PUT OUR  BRAINS  TOGTHER TO  COUNTER  THE POINTS  RAISED  BY  L.I.C  IN  THEIR SLP,  ESPECIALLY  ITEM  (S) AND (T)  ON CUT  OFF DATE  NEEDS  SPECIAL  ATTENTION.  PRIMARILY  WE  SHOULD CONVINCE  THE S.C   THAT  S.L.P.  SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED.

H.C  OF RAJASTHAN  OBSERVED THAT IF AT ALL  THERE IS ANY  SCOPE  FOR GRIEVANCE ON  THE MATTER RELATING TO SEC. 48 IT IS FOR THE G.O.I., BUT NOT FOR L.I.C.  BUT G.O.I  DID NOT  CARE  OR BOTHER TO PURSUE  THE MATTER  BEFORE  THE H.C  OR THE S.C. 
 BUT  NOW  G.O.I  IS  BEING  DRAGGED  INTO  THE  MATTER  BY  THE  S.C . WHICH MEANS  G.O.I  IS INVITED  TO  PRESENT  ITS  CASE  ON  SEC.48  WHICH  MAY PUT  US TO SOME  DISADVANTAGE.  WHEN  G.O.I  IS NOT INTERESTED  TO  PROCEED  LEGALLY AT H.C RAJASTAN  OR AT  S.C LEVEL,  THE  APEX  COURT  SHOULD  DECIDE THE  MATTER EX PARTE  AGAINST  THE G.O.I. THEN   WE CAN TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE  OF THE  VERDICT OF H.C RAJASTAN  AND  THE RECENT  PUNJAB & HARYANA  JUDGMENT  FAVOURABLE TO  US .
L.I.C  HAS NO LOCUS STANDIE  TO PURSUE  THE CASE  INVOKING  SEC.48 WHICH IN FACT  IS THE AREA OF THE G.O.I   AND G.O.I  IS  NOT BOTHERED TO PURSUE THE MATTER.  THERE IS NO  COMMUNICATION  AFTER  THE  G.O.I  COLLECTED  THE PAPERS  FROM THE REGISTRAR  OF SUPREME COURT.  DID THEY  FILE ANY  COUNTER  OR ANY REPRESANTATION  GIVEN TO S.C BY  G.O.I .  
OUR  STRATEGY  SHOULD BE NOT TO ALLOW  GOVERNMENT OF INDIA  AS PARTY  TO S.L.P.   IN CASE  THE GOVERNMENT  IS ALLOWED,  SOME  PENSIONERS  MAY FILE A PETITION  TO ALLOW THEM  AS INTERVENERS   TO  SUPPORT  THE CAUSE  OF SRI ASTHANA BY  SUPPLEMENTING SOME  MORE VALID  POINTS  .

               WITH  REGARDS    V.S.PRAKASA RAO   - VIZAG                   
 ( SHRI PRAKASARAO JOINED L.I.C IN 1962 AT MACHILIPATNAM DIVISION OFFICE AS ASST.   RETIRED ON 31-12-2001 

AT DIVL. OFFICE VISAKAHPATNAM AS MANAGER L&HPF.   HE WAS BRANCH MANAGER KHAMMAM , JAGTIAL .
