As per the telephonic information received by me a short while ago from Mr M Sreenivasa Murty, the LIC Counsel today made a mention before the Supreme Court Bench for certain "accommodation" which means possible adjournment.
Our Chandigarh petitioners' counsel Jay Savla Associates' advocate was informed of their proposed plea only 4 minutes before 2 P.M. with no time given to her to be present when the mention was made.
It is later gathered that the judge heard the plea and directed LIC counsel to appear tomorrow and make the mention.GOI/LIC wanted to engage Solicitor General of India who is not free tomorrow.
If such development takes place tomorrow,Mr Murty wants to press for proper payment of interim relief to all eligible pensioners beyond the respondent-pensioners.
