JM Aboobucker: 

At last the moon has been sighted. 

The judgment has been uploaded in the SC website for the information of all. 

It is sad that all the 3 HCs orders have been SET ASIDE by the SC.
Only because of the arguments of counsel for Mr.GNS raising the constitutional validity of Rule 3(A) to Annexure IV of LIC Pension Rules 1995, the case has been remanded to the Delhi HC for de novo consideration of our case. 

The redeeming factors in the judgment are 

1. A time limit has been fixed for giving Delhi HC judgment before 31-8-2016

2. The judge has taken a sympathetic view of the plight of Pensioners and ordered for payment of IR at 40% as per Impugned Para 3(A) to Annexure IV, not only to the petitioners but also to those persons who are similarly placed within a period of SIX WEEKS.

Bhaktavatsalarao.k: The breaking news is only Heart breaking. The bottom line is that the resolution of the Board needs Central Government approval. The SC approval is limited to DA anomoly. The legal pundits may throw some more light in the matter.
