Organisation ...Petitioner(s) Versus Union of India & Ors. ...Respondent(s)
O R D E R Heard the learned counsel.
The grievance of the
applicants in this application is that the respondent- Union of India has not
considered the cases of the applicants for grant of pension under Swatantrata
Sainik Samman Pension Scheme, 1980. In the additional affidavit filed on behalf
of the State of West Bengal, it has been stated that, out of 156 applicants,
cases of 76 persons have been forwarded to the Government of India. Mr.
A. Sharan, learned
Additional Solicitor General appearing on behalf of the Union of India, stated
that three months' time may be granted to take a decision upon the cases of 76
persons forwarded by the State of West Bengal to it. We find that prayer is
reasonable and must be granted.
....2/- - 2- Accordingly,
we direct the Union of India to take final decision in the matter within a
period of three months from today and immediately thereafter communicate its
decision to the 76 applicants whose cases have been forwarded to it.
I.A. No.5 is,
accordingly, disposed of.
