Readers might be going through the updates being made by KR Saini, an expert on pension issues, pending with different courts of the country including the main one at the level of Delhi High Court where the case is being listed for hearing on day to day basis.

What is practically happening is that the case is eliciting only a treatment of a material in the waste paper basket without paying any heed to the merit and urgency aspect of it. Thanks to Shri KR Saini who indefatigably is trying sky and earth by issuing plenty of literature on pension issues for awareness of the readers, retirees, pensioners from State Bank of India and others interested in the issues directly or indirectly. Today was the date as a routine serial in Delhi High Court but this again is carried over for tomorrow and what is more likely is that even tomorrows date meets the same fate –a deferment to day after tomorrow and so onwards.
