To the best of my knowledge none of the unions or Association of officers have demanded for pension updation in our industry. We took up the cause for discussion and wrote several letters to the Management but as usual they did not bother even to reply.
We took a conscious decision to file a case in the Madurai bench of Madras High court and did the same in 2011. Some of our colleagues have filed a case in Jodhpur and Jaipur bench of Rajasthan High court. But that did not come up so far for hearing.
We got our case taken up for trial and the arguments are over on 18th of this March 15. and the judgement was reserved. we expect the judgement in a few months.
The LIC pensioners under the leadership of Shri Asthana got the case up to Supreme court and is adjouned 4 times because of the delaying tactics of the Management and is now posted for hearing 25th march.
let us hope for the best in both the cases and we should continue to fight for a permanent solution and your co-operation is solicited.
With full enthusiasm our members attended the General body meeting of our Association on 7 th of this month. and delegates from other states also participated other than the local members with the delegates from the Tamil nadu districts and with their assurance of full co-operation for our fight in the Supreme Court and also for the Maduari High Court case, we dispersed on a high note to fight for the rights of the Pensioners in the General insurance industry.
