All'll be well to righteous
I had, like a stubborn child, insisted that none other than Shri M. Sreenivasa Murty to elucidate at length the 'Issue/ s' before the Supreme Court of India. (PC : 02-02-2016). Now that, Sarvshri A.S.Ramanathan and C.H. Mahadevan have eloquently expressed their views and have cleared the daunting doubts in the minds of some pensioners, I suggest that Shri Murty, who is preoccupied, may not take the trouble to clarify further.
To recapitulate - Sarvshri Ramanathan and Mahadevan :
Apart from examining the strength and weakness of Sec.48 **- whether LIC (Board of Directors) can act, in pension related matters, on its own or with the approval / at the directive of GOI, the Apex Court have to consider the aspects of anomaly in DR and pension disparity on the Touchstone of Article 14 of (equality....etc. the fundamental right enshrined in) the Constitution of India. [** Shri CHM ]
The Apex Court would not, for sure, disregard or be oblivious to its own landmark judgement in D.S.Nakara & others v/ s UOI.
All'll be well to righteous.
