Even now it is not too late !

 
Dear Editor ji
 
I particularly avoid mentioning the contending parties by name. The reason is not to hurt anyone. I mention them as Party 1, Party 2 and Party 3

Supposing :
 
The Court asks LIC counsel - " Have you complied with the Order for Interim relief. LIC says Yes.

What will be the reactions of the counsels of Pensioners (parties mentioned above). One may say we are waiting for LIC to give calculation sheets; anyhow we know LIC has paid less; another may say that after LIC gives the calculation sheet, we can point out the exact extent of non compliance of the Order. The third may say that LIC has paid only 1.30% of the due amount and not 20% as per the order.

The Court may say to the parties giving vague replies to the questions asked "when you cannot pinpoint how much is due and what is the shortfall, how do you say there is non compliance". Come with your calculations. The Court is adjourned.

These are all my presumptions. Many pensioners including me do not want such a thing to happen. We appeal to the trios, atleast at this hour (forgetting the ego) to have a common minimum programme and jointly fight the issues without disputing the contentions of other parties. The three contending parties should have perfect understanding on important aspects. Even now it is not too late.
