Looks like the very issue of pension is counting its pendency order in a waste paper basket. A look on what is given below, being the information supplied to me by K.R. Saini by way of his comment on my relative blog post (the link is appended), shows how casually the pension issue has been taken at the Court’s level apparently for the reason that the issue was not followed up vigorously by the concerned channels:
“DEAR SHRI NEELKNTH JI,I FULLY AGREE WITH YOUR VIEWS.,NO MENTION HAS BEEN MADE IN THE OFFICIAL WEB -SITE OF SUPREME COURT THE REASON FOR THE DEFERMENT OF THE CASE AND ONLY MENTIONED”NEXT DATE OF LISTING 06-02-2013 ” THIS CASE HAS BEEN LISTED 9 TIMES AND ADJOURNMENTS HAS BEEN MADE FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS.NO BODY KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE DELHI HIGH COURT CASE WP(C)1931/2002 LISTED ON 10-01-2013.THIS CASE WAS FILED BY 7 PENSIONERS IN THE YEAR 2002 AND NOT DECIDED YET AFTER 10 YEARS. FROM THE COURT CASES IT APPEARS THAT JUSTICE DELAYED MEANS JUSTICE DENIED. K.R SAINI P.S THIS CASE IS LISTED 23 TIMES DURING , THE LAST 10 YEARS,AND FOUR PETIONERS HAD ALREADY DIED OUT OF SEVEN PETITIONERS. K. R SAINI”
The next date fixed up for the hearing in Supreme Court is actually 19th February’2013 and not 6/2/2013 as published earlier.
