Re: Today’s proceedings in Delhi HC

The arguments in our cases continued today and we were in constant touch with our Counsel Shri RK Garg and our LC Member Shri VK Jain.

The proceedings began with resumption of arguments to complete the partly advanced submissions by other counsels. In the afternoon session LIC’s counsel is reported to have stressed on the financial implications on the pensioners’ demands. The Court directed LIC to file an affidavit on the financial impact, within 7 days, and also directed the respondents to file their reply in a week thereafter.

We are informed that a representation was made to the effect that the Solicitor General will be available for arguments on behalf of UOI only at the next hearing. The Court thereafter adjourned the matter to 25th Jan 2017.

According to our information a senior counsel representing another organisation (i.e. not ours) that a formal petition may be fled for extending the time set by the Hon SC for disposal of the case. The concerned senior counsel had agreed to do so. Evidently, the Hon Court themselves would need some more time to come out with their verdict.

Further to our e Circular of date, we would like to inform that in the latest circular referred to above there has been an inadvertent omission.  We therefore hasten to clarify that it was the suggestion of fthe Hon'ble Court themselves that a petition may be filed for extension of time for disposal by the HC. The omission of the words ''the court suggested ''was accidental and the same is regretted. - GNSridharan
