ASTHANA'S REPORT

DEAR ALL LIC PENSIONERS,

OUR CASE WAS LISTED IN THE SC AT NO. 104. EARLIER TO THIS THERE WERE OTHER CASES. THE CASE NO. 101 WAS FINISHED WITHIN ONE HOUR WHILE THE CASE NO. 102 HAD TAKEN MORE THAN FOUR HOURS AND THE COURT WAS UPTO 4.00 PM ONLY.

THEREFORE THE COURT SUGGESTED THE SAME AGAIN ON TOP OF THE BOARD ON 17TH BUT THEN OUR ADVOCATES SAID TOP OF THE BOARD IS CONTINUING FOR LONG BUT TO NO RESULT.

THEN THE COURT SAID THAT THE QUESTION OF VALIDITY OF SECTION 48 IS TO BE CONSIDERED, LET THE SAME LIST CONTINUE IN THE NEXT THURSDAY SO THAT THIS CASE WILL COME AT NUMBER ONE OR TWO.

ON THIS OUR ADVOCATES SAID THAT THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF SECTION 48 IS NOBODY'S CHALLENGE. MOREOVER ALL THE RULES AND NOTIFICATIONS ARE ISSUED IN EXERCISE OF POWERS VESTED IN SECTION 48 AND WE HAVE ALSO NOT CHALLENGED THE SAME, LIC IS FALSELY NOW RAKING THIS QUESTION WHILE OUR DEMAND IS IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RULES AND NOTIFICATIONS IN THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE TO PENSIONERS ALSO. WHILE LIC IS NOT DOING AND THERE IS NO DISPUTE IN THIS REGARD AND SINCE LIC HAS BEEN ACTING ON THOSE BASIS IT CANNOT CHALLENGE.

THEN THE JUDGES SAID THAT NOW THAT THERE WAS NO TIME IT WOULD BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION ON THE NEXT THURSDAY.

BUT THEN MSM RAKED IN THE ISSUE OF 20% ON WHICH COURT SAID THAT IF THE PAYMENT HAD NOT BEEN MADE FILE A CONTEMPT PETITION WE WOULD TAKE ACTION AGAINST THEM, BUT THE QUESTION ARISES 20% OF WHAT AND WHAT ABOUT OTHER PERSONS WHO ARE NOT THE RESPONDENTS. WE CANNOT IGNORE THEM. THEREFORE, OUR ADVOCATES SAID THAT THOUGH THE PAYMENT HAS NOT BEEN MADE AS PER THE ORDER TO THE RESPONDENTS OF JAIPUR HIGH COURT, BUT NOW WE PRAY FOR IMMEDIATE DECISION OF THE CASE SO THAT 100 PER CENT AND THE ELIGIBILITY IS DECIDED. THEN ONLY CONTEMPT WILL BE MADE. LIC'S ADVOCATE IMMEDIATELY SAID THAT THEY HAD MADE THE PAYMENT BUT SINCE CHANDIGARH PEOPLE DID NOT ALLOW TO WITHDRAW THE MONEY THEREFORE, PAYMENT COULD NOT BE MADE.

BUT THIS COULD NOT BE REPLIED BY MSM BECAUSE HE APPEARED TO BE NOT ABLE TO APPRECIATE THE ORDER DATED 7TH MAY. ON THE OTHER HAND SINCE 20% OF WHAT IS YET TO BE DECIDED WE INSISTED ON EARLY DECISION OF THE SLP.

IT IS EXPECTED THAT SOME OUTCOME OF THE APPEAL MIGHT COME ON 17TH MARCH. BUT IT IS NECESSARY THAT SUCH INTERESTED PERSONS MAY NOT CREATE HURDLES WHICH MAY AVERT THE FINAL OUTCOME AS WE DESIRE AND THE LITIGATION MAY NOT PROLONG.

WITH GREETINGS,

KML ASTHANA
