Crossfire


Dear Editor,

I have really enjoyed today morning reading divergent views on your blog from our two learned friends under the caption Crossfire.

I also wish to join both of them by raising a few issues as below.
1. Caption should be Healthy Debate..

2. Yes I agree that GNS must have written to LIC for immediate release of payment to all pre 01.08.1997 retirees in stead of falling in LIC Trap for providing list of in force members and this one single step by GNS would have made him a real hero of LIC Pensioners Community. But it seems that this match was already fixed.

3. LIC has interpreted supreme court order dated 07.05.2015 as usual in its own style and more so LIC did not show any respect and regard for said court order with its act of non compliance within six weeks time.

Why non compliance within six weeks time limit by LIC has not been highlighted or taken up by our two great Leaders means GNS & KML

4. LIC did not deposit correctly amount actually payable to petitioners at two high courts, means no money for pension upgradation or even DA to pre 1997 retirees also calculated wrongly means same being without any weightage of 11.25 % as stipulated in LIC Board Resolution.

Is there any sense to support LIC Application or Move for withdrawal of this petty amount and that also not within six weeks time limit ?

We have also read a new theory floated by KML that there is lot of difference between amount withdrawn and amount to be paid means that LIC will withdraw amount  but is likely to pay much higher amount to petitioners.

I hope that our learned friends and esteemed readers will initiate a healthy debate on this issue also.

5 Yes, I agree with a view that being a member of any pensioners organisation does not mean extending blind support to every wrong action or theory of our top leaders. All Members have their own identity and enjoy full freedom to expose any wrong action or misdeed by our so called leaders.
