WARM REGARDS


Responding to Shri Subbu Sir with warm regards

Shri Subbu Sir is a sweet analyst and a subtle critic. He may now be likened to an animal dissector (anatomy).

On Dec.4 and 5, many exchanged pleasantries. On Dec.14, it was of a different kind. Had the S.C. order been implemented, on an average Rs.21,722/- could have been credited to the banks' accounts of 31 petitioners. The correct amount, of course,  would be much more, about Rs.60,303/- to each on an average. Things did workout differently on that day.

To think outside the box or beyond box seems imperative, at times. Every month has been passing through promises, hopes, high hopes, disbelief , hopelessness and overpowering pessimism. It was with this background, a suggestion was made to make "mention" by all the case Managers and Advocates that the 20% may be extended to all 50000 plus pensioners and family pensioners. It was a qualified suggestion. There is no need if the cases are heard continuously on one, two or more number of days and decided. "Mention" a must if there is adjournment beyond fifteen days. If fifteen days is considered too less to make a "Mention", it may prayed if adjournment is sought by LIC or GOI is for a month or two or more. There are other issues like family pension etc. All these issues are equally important as 100% neutralisation in DA/DR  and updating of pension. These issues too should be dealt with seriousness that they deserve.
