They need to answer the following simple questions:
Assuming that SC dismisses all LIC Appeals and the SLPs by UoI, AND consequently the Jaipur Judgement is upheld, how does anybody visualize LIC's compliance on up-gradation? And correct DR Formula for pre-97 retirees?
2. What compels LIC to act differently from what it is doing now?.
3. How will the benefit go to all AIRIEF members not to talk of other 40000 Pensioners? Do they invoke Delhi Order? At what stage?
4. What is the justification for AIRIEF's repeated somersaults on impleading before SC?
5. If upgradation in principle and to PAY ALL components are not ensured even for interim Order purposes,, how will anybody ensure it in the FINAL ACT?
If one cannot answer the above questions satisfactorily, the least one can do is to let the doers do their job. Let all other Agendas be kept aside.
Finally, our strategy has worked already because, both LIC and SC are now compelled to look at Final decisions on Appeals because each time it gets delayed,, we keep raising our demand
‘PAY 20% CORRECTLY & AND TO ALL’.
