10-05-2022, Dada Tukaram Zode, Dear EPS 95 pensioners friends,
Kind attention to Petitioners/Parties, before the honorable Supreme Court, in EPS 95 matters.
Dear friends, AOR for EPFO has submitted a letter to the Registrar of the Supreme Court , on 6-05-2022, for urgent mentioning of EPS 95 pension matters and it may be on the instructions of EPFO/ MOl& E. It is certainly not with the intention to help the Pensioners of the country. In my opinion, the ill intentions of EPFO/MOL&E is that to declare R C Gupta as ” Bad in Law” with the help of Mr K K Venugopal, Attorney General of India and the honorable justice U U Lalit of the Supreme Court. Though the post of Attorney General is a constitutional post and he is supposed to give justice to the people of the country, by giving proper advice to the Government , he will not do it, as , he is under obligations of Government, for his additional terms and gains. He is working as the obedient servant of the Government and not of the country.
From the past experience, the honorable Supreme Court or specifically honorable justice U U Lalit is also seems to be in favour of Government. So far our EPS 95 pension matters is concerned, honorable justice U U Lalit has worked as an agent of the Government and not as the judge of the Supreme Court, which is very deplorable. How the honorable justice U U Lalit has caused injustice to the Pensioners, in passing the orders dated 29-01-2021, 25-02-2021 and lastly on 24-08-2021, is described in details, in my letters dated 15-09-2021 addressed to the honorable Chief Justice of India and letter dated 30-09-2021 addressed to the Pensioners friends. In my letters dated 10-01-2022 addressed to the honorable President of India, it is described how the settled matters was being made unsettled by the honorable justice U U Lalit.
Dear friends, our cases are legally very very strong and R C Gupta have achieved finality and it can not be reopened, directly or indirectly. Similarly R C Gupta is the interpretation of law and based on the decisions of the honorable Supreme Court in earlier 10 SLPs of EPFO and R C Gupta is 100% correct. However, honorable justice U U Lalit has very very illegally and in violations of all the norms of laws and jurisprudence passed the Order dated 24-08-2021, referring R C Gupta to the larger Bench , for varification of its correctness . This order dated 24-08-2021 , passed by the honorable justice U U Lalit is 100% illegal and should be challenged first.
If the order dated 24-08-2021 is not challenged, hearing will be done on correctness of R C Gupta and if that hearing is done before the bench of justice U U Lalit, he will 100% declared R C Gupta as bad in law, what ever may be the position and provisions of law. This is my opinion. To get rid of this, only alternative, in my opinion, is to challenge the Order dated 24-08-2021, before the larger Bench, without waiting for listing of these cases or other wise as per the option of the Advocates engaged in these matters. If the order dated 24-08-2021, passed by the honorable justice U U Lalit, is challenged, matters will not be listed before the bench of justice U U Lalit, as per the cannon of natural justice and settled judicial procedures. As EPFO/MOL&E have planned to spoil R C Gupta, this is a very crucial point to think and strategically face the legal battle and therefore, I am of the option that the order dated 24-08-2021 should be challenged first . Interim orders passed on 29-01-2021 and on 25-02-2021 can also be challenged for the reasons mentioned in my above referred letters.
This is my sincere opinion.
