5. More over all EPS 95 Pensioners Advocates and legal experts are not inclined towards filing anything in Supreme Court at the present juncture, since the main case is at its Final stage.
In the light of the above, it was decided to convene JAC General Body meeting of all stakeholders for amicable solution in this matter.
Accordingly Secretary Mr. Ramanan has fixed the meeting on 21-05-2022 at T. Nagar Club.
In the mean time, however it is understood that filing of “Intervening Petition” has been finalized by concerned (SPIC & TECNIP Retirees) and being handled by BHEL Advocate Mr.Anatha pathamanaban in Supreme Court as informed by Mr. Ramanan Secretary (JAC) (Total expenses around 10 Lakhs).
Dear friends wish to remind you all that the formation of a Joint Committee (including various unions) was a difficult task and somehow we managed its function for an objective collectively all these years
The JAC is formed in the year 2017 and Registered during 2018 with 12 organisations and now with consist of 62 organisations and continuing our journey successfully.
It is relevant to point out that the 90 Writ Petitions filed in Madras High Court on various dates by different organisations were accumulated and then tagged by JAC. The struggle taken to prepare the affidavits, gathering required documents and other evidences were wonderfully tackled by hard work of legal experts and leaders and with the help of Mr.Parveen Kohli.
We had won the case successfully and now waiting for the judgment in Writ Appeal filed by EPFO. No doubt we are wining the Writ Appeal very soon. For the delay, we have to blame only Covid.
We are anxiously waiting for the Judgments both that of Supreme Court as well as in Madras High Court in our favour soon.
Further it may be noted that though we are not a Party in Supreme Court however the decisions of SC will be binding on us.
We are (JAC) not a party for filing anything in Supreme Court at Present. Nevertheless if the Verdict of the SC is in our favour, then we can consider our share to the court expenses. Your views in this regard are solicited.
