M Sreenivasa Murty: Dear Editor, The time given to LIC to make 40% payment by the SC Order of 31 March was Six weeks and not four weeks, Vide para 27 of the Judgement. So the payment should come by 15 May or at least by 22 May.


Editor writes: Shri Murty had reported from Supreme Court as follows:-
  • All appeals referred to Delhi HC to be decided afresh before 31-08-2016.
  • * IR increased to 40% to all similarly placed pensioners.
  • * Not limited to petitioners.
  • * Pay in 4 weeks.
"I am not able to confirm the revision component for IR," informs Shri M. Sreenivasa Murty from Supreme Court.

We were referring to the above report when we referred to the period of 4 weeks. The pertinent question is: Six weeks from which date? Is it the date of judgment or the date on which the order was released. In law and legal matters, everything should be absolutely clear and there should not be any confusion. '15th or atleast by 22nd May" is not something we expect from a Supreme Court Order.
