All About 'An Old Joke'
13 Jun 16, 01:34 PM

WADEKAR SAYI: I enjoyed the Editor's 'old joke'. Such AVATARS who interpret rules in their own way can be found in any OS Dept of LIC. What this gentleman in OS failed to appreciate is the background of the request for waiving train ticket. Such persons do not apply their mind. Still they consider themselves to be expert workers!

a v subbaraman: i saw the post of john ponnudurai's lament and pg's experience of lic's apathy. in this connection i may share my experience. before my retirement (30 04 2002) i availed ltc travelling a/c car mode approved by lic. i submitted the bill for 15000 rs to cbe do. it was disallowed as ineligible and i could get only 3rd class train fare. i did not accept and sent a personal letter to southern z.m. it was referred to z o os dept. they also could not decide and referred to audit dept where i worked for 7 years. audit dept cleared my case and i got full reimbursement in in july. after 3 months of retirement, zm also sent me a letter.


(Re.Reference to PG's experience. To the Editor money was never a criteria for doing a work. Those days he knew personally the Chairman, Zonal Manager and others. It was possible to take up the issue directly with any of them but the Editor thought for his very personal reasons that while some work of his choice should be done, there should not be any occasion to discuss any personal issues with them. Even when the then Chief General Manager,LIC HFL,asked the Editor to submit the bills for the expenses incurred to undertake a project of studying the working procedures of different companies advancing housing loans, the project was undertaken and report submitted but a bill for the same was never submitted. The Southern Zonal Manager was Shri BR Sethi and it was possible to take up the matter directly with him. But when someone works on a higher plane and discusses organizational matters with them and the trade union leaders, the issue of a TE bill was but a petty issue which cannot be discussed with them at all. Even now the issue was projected only to show how sometimes some persons interpret matters with their own petty standards. That's all. And that explains the issue. -Ed.)

C H Mahadevan: Will the case managers at Delhi HC bring Mr John Ponnudurai's lament to the notice of the special bench?
