A LAY MAN's APPROACH

       
Paras 8,9,10,11  13,14,15,16 are very relevant & pertinent.

As rightly said, Powers that be ,by their Orders nullify the original provision which is made ,with a definite purpose & if they now rule out that provision that it cannot be invoked, it is a deathblow to pensioners. Supreme Court must clear that stand & the positive & affirmative meaning of such a provision has to be made use of to assist & promote  benefit for the larger cause of pensioners  & not to deny 

R.B.KISHORE,
VP,AIRIEF 

A LAY MAN'S APPROACH

          1.                       "WHEN WE FAIL
                                    IN OUR EFFORTS
                                    BETTER TO PEEP
                                    INTO THE PAST"

          2.              No doubt,every pensioner of LIC,expecting 
                and made to believe a favourable judicial support
                for his demands,the observations/recommenda-
                tions of D.HC,than to call it a judgement at this
                stage, is put to a big jolt.

          3.              I admit that I do not have the legal base 
                and do not know much about the legal proceed-
                ures and the judicial jugglery.Even then I dare to
                put my head into the most complicated legal 
                issues, in order to respond to the call given by
                AIRIEF, to have a feed back from its members
                at this critical juncture.

          4.             It appears to me that we lost the grip on our
                case not on 27-04-2017,when the D.HC.delivered
                its observations, but on 31-03-2016 itself, when 
                the S.C.pronounced its partial judgement.The 
                roots of unrecoverable damage meted to us by 
                the D.HC, rest in the S.C.judgement of 31-03-2016

          5.             The achievements of our legal toil over a
                period of years were put aside by the S.C. stating
                that " the learned single judge as well as the D.B.
                has committed illegality in deciding an issue of 
                law."Who is responsible for this.It is neither the
                pensioners who approached the courts for justice
                nor the courts that favoured them.By not caring 
                to set right the anomaly of DR formula in respect
                of pensioners retiring on different dates; not evin-
                cing interest to look into the resolution of the LIC
                BOARD for years together, which worked out a
                rationalised DR structure for the smooth function-
                ing of the corporation under its domain, it is the 
                GOI that resorted to illegality of shirking its respo-
                nsibility.It is that adamant attitude of the GOI
                made the pensioners go round the courts in 
                search of justice, contributing heavy amounts
                beyond their capacities and face the fiddle of
                prolonged litigation

         6.                 A septuagenarian pensioner could not
                digest the legal play with the nod of the judiciary
                and feels he is made a prey of the judicial 
                jugglery.Good number of pensioners being septu-
                agenarians and some are crossing that mark 
                even, it is a pity that they are not given the super
                senior citizen privilege or treatment in dealing
                and disposing of their cases with some priority.

         7.                 The present batch of pensioners are those
                who rendered humane service, immediately after
                the formation of LIC,realising and consolidating
                their efforts in achieving the objectives of LIC.
                In those initial days, those in particular who 
                worked during the period 1960-2000 laid the
                foundation so strong and they are responsible
                for the present day growth of the corporation
                to this level of status.

        8.                   If the GOI is getting crores by way of its
                share out of the surplus it is due to the hard,
                honest and sincere efforts and whole hearted
                contribution of the pensioners of today and it is 
                not fair on the part of LIC,GOI, as well the judiciary
                to find out some illegalities in the implementation
                of law to avoid what is due to such contributors.
                THEY should feel proud to make such contribu-
                tors (pensioners) lead a comfortable life of 
                present day standards.

        9.                  A govt school teacher in A.P.who worked
               during the above period,drew half the salary of an
               LIC employee,is today getting 25% more pension
               than his LIC counterpart.It is high time that THEY
               have  to reconcile and improve their standards of
               understanding to consider and give prominence to
               such aspects of  EQUALITY, SOCIAL JUSTICE and
               become more sensitive to the ENVIRONMENTAL
               ECHOS, but not limiting themselves to mere 
               aspects of Legal JURISPRUDENCE only and they
               should exhibit dignity in deeds and assure that
               JUSTICE OR JUDGEMENTS SHOULD NOT 
               B E C O M E    O  U  T   D  A  T  E  D.
  
      10.                   At a time when everything was ready and
              everybody was awaiting for the final outcome,
              having dealt the case in all its facets in a row of
              adjournments over a period of prolonged years,
              it was indeed a surprising move that the S.C. 
              came out with an innovative proposition on
              31-03-2016, delivering a partial judgement and
              transferring some vital aspects of the case to be
              dealt by a bench of D.HC, in turn which has to 
              study the case from alphabets, definitely a time  
              consuming device, contributing to prolong the
              litigation further.

      11.                    For a lay man like me, this type of legal
              procedure viz delivering a partial judgement 
              without having clarity on all the aspects on hand
              concerning the case is first of its kind and many
              were baffled. If some more information or some
              clarity in respect of some aspects was required, it
              could be completed in S.C. itself in another 5 or 6
              adjournments over a period of 6 to 8 months or a
              maximum of 1 year and by this time the full and
              final judgement could have been delivered.

      12.                      Perhaps, we felt happy that we were 
              given an opportunity to put forth our arguments
              vigorously in support of our demands, gathering
              all the loose and missing threads, instead we did 
              not feel and think much to put a review petition or
              some other legal resort against the odds that
              weakened our case.

      13.                  Rule 56 of the LIC of India(employees)
              pension Rules 1995 has got the potentiality and
              it is more than a LIFE SAVING PILL FOR US and
              we have to work out our strategies to utilise it for
              our advantage.

      14.                 Our submissions on Rule 56 in the D.HC.
              in support of our case are turned down vehemently
              creating a state of confusion, by going on repeat-
              edly citing number of case laws running into
              number of pages and finally trying to make us
              understand that the constitution and composition
              of PENSION FUND OF LIC IS DIFFERENT FROM
              THAT OF GOI EMPLOYEES AND WE CANNOT
              ASSERT  ANY ADVANTAGE UNDER THIS RULE. 

      15.                 IF THAT WERE TO BE THE FATE OF THAT
             RULE 56, WE HAVE TO FIND OUT THE SCOPE AND
             NEED OF ITS INCLUSION IN THE RULES BOOK 
             AND WHETHER THERE CAN BE A SINGLE 
             OCCASION TO TOUCH THAT RULE. ABOVE ALL
             CONTRARY TO THE INFERENCES OF THE D.HC,
             IT IS NECESSARY THAT THE EXTENT OF
             LEGALITY OF RULE 56 IS TO BE ESTABLISHED
             IN THE SUPREME COURT.
      
      16.       NOTWITHSTANDING WHAT HAS BEEN STATED
              ABOVE, THE BALL BEING TOSSED AMONG THE
              PENSIONERS ASSOCIATIONS, LIC, GOI, S.C, AND
              THE DIFFERENT HIGH COURTS AND FINALLY
              AGAIN REACHED THE HIGHEST JUDICIAL 
              AUTHORITY OF THE LAND WHERE OUR FUTURE
              AND FATE ARE IN STORE.
              WE SHOULD NOT FORGET THE COMMENTS OF
              THE S.C. MORE THAN ONCE , WHILE TRANSFER-
              ING THE CASE TO D.HC.THAT " WE MAY CLARIFY
              THAT WE HAVE NOT EXPRESSED ANY OPINION
              ON THE MERITS OF THE CASE ." AT THE SAME
              IT IS ALSO NOTEWORTHY TO RECOLLECT THE
              COMMENTS OF THE S.C. WITH THE SAME SPIRIT
              AGAIN MORE THAN ONCE, AN EXPRESSION OF
              LIP SYMPATHY FOR THE PENSIONERS. I BELIEVE
              THERE IS SOMETHING IN OUR FAVOUR.
              IN THIS BACKGROUND, IT IS INTERESTING TO
              WATCH, WHETHER THE S.C.IS GOING TO
              RATIONALISE OR MODIFY CERTAIN ASPECTS
              OF D.HC. FOR THE BETTERMENT OF PENSIO-
              NERS OR GOING TO ENDORSE IN TOTO AND
              GIVE US A BIG HAND.

      17.                   I FEEL IT IS A BETTER PROPOSITION
              TO APPROACH  THE S.C. THAN TO PUT A REVIEW
              PETITION IN THE D.HC. HOWEVER IT IS UP TO THE
              LEGAL COMMITTEE TO DECIDE A STILL BETTER
              LEGAL RESORT IN CONSULTATION WITH OUR
              SENIOR COUNSEL


     YOURS TRULY

GST will be Implemented from July – Which Items will Become Cheaper?



May 24, 2017 by Prakash Malankar
1 जुलाई से देश में जीएसटी (GST) लागू होने वाला है। इसके लागू होने के बाद से पूरे देश में एक टैक्स की व्यवस्था होगी। लेकिन देशभर में एक टैक्स लागू होने से कुछ चीजें सस्ती होंगी जबकि कुछ के लिए आपको अपनी जेब थोड़ी ज्यादा ढीली करनी पड़ेगी। आगे की स्लाइड्स में पढ़िए कौन सी चीजें जीएसटी लागू होने के बाद से सस्ती हो जाएंगी।
पैक्ड चाय व कॉफी-
इस पर वर्तमान टैक्स की दर 10.29 प्रतिशत है। जीएसटी GST) में यह दर पांच प्रतिशत होगी। यानी अगर एक माह में 150 रुपये एक पैकेट चाय या कॉफी का लगता है तो उसकी कीमत 143 रुपये आ जाएगी। इससे सात रुपये का फायदा होगा।
कोल्ड ड्रिंक्स-
इस पर वर्तमान में 53.85 प्रतिशत टैक्स है, जो जीएसटी में 40 प्रतिशत होगा। अगर महीने में कोल्ड ड्रिंक्स पर आप खपत 300 रुपये खर्च करते हैं तो यह घटकर 269 रुपये पर आ जाएगा। इस लिहाज से 71 रुपये की बचत होगी।
मसाले-
वर्तमान में मसालों पर 9.09 प्रतिशत टैक्स है, जो जीएसटी के बाद पांच प्रतिशत हो जाएगा। अगर महीने में आपके मसालों की खपत 500 ग्राम की है और उसकी कीमत 150 रुपये है तो यह खर्च घटकर 144 रुपये हो जाएगा। यानी छह रुपये का लाभ होगा।
पैक्ड दही-
इस पर अभी 8.7 प्रतिशत टैक्स है, जो जीएसटी में टैक्स फ्री कर दिया गया है। यानी अगर आप वर्तमान में 100 रुपये पैकेट के हिसाब से चार पैकेट 400 रुपये के लेते हैं तो वह सीधे 368 रुपये के आ जाएंगे। इससे आपको 32 रुपये का फायदा होगा।
पैक्ड पनीर-
इस पर वर्तमान में 9.17 प्रतिशत टैक्स है, जो जीएसटी में पांच प्रतिशत होगा। अगर आप महीने में 250 रुपये के हिसाब से 500 रुपये के दो पैकेट खरीदते हैं तो यह घटकर 481 रुपये पर आ जाएगा। यानी आपके 19 रुपये की बचत कर पाएंगे।
टूथपेस्ट-
इस पर अभी 39.53 प्रतिशत टैक्स है, जो जीएसटी में घटकर 18 प्रतिशत रह जाएगा। अगर महीने में आप 60-60 रुपये वाले दो पैकेट 120 रुपये के खरीदते हैं तो यह खर्च घटकर 102 रुपये पर आ जाएगा। यानी 18 रुपये की बचत होगी।
शैंपू-
इस पर अभी 38.89 प्रतिशत टैक्स है, जो जीएसटी के बाद घटकर 28 प्रतिशत रह जाएगा। अगर महीने में 250 रुपये का एक बोतल शैंपू लगता है तो जीएसटी के बाद इसकी कीमत 230 रुपये रह जाएगी। यानी 20 रुपये का फायदा होगा।
कॉर्न फ्लेक्स-
इस पर अभी 32.74 प्रतिशत टैक्स है और जीएसटी के बाद 18 प्रतिशत रह जाएगा। अगर महीने में 150 रुपये पैकेट के हिसाब से दो पैकेट 300 रुपये के खरीदते हैं तो यह घटकर 268 रुपये रह जाएगा। यानी 32 रुपये का लाभ होगा।
चॉकलेट-
इस पर वर्तमान टैक्स 33.33 प्रतिशत है, जो 28 प्रतिशत रह जाएगा। महीने में अगर 20 रुपये पैकेट के हिसाब से 100 रुपये के पांच पैकेट चॉकलेट लेते हैं तो इसके लिए 95 रुपये ही देने होंगे। इससे आपको पांच रुपये का लाभ होगा।
