Haryana HC issues pension benefits

Chandigarh: In a case that highlights the delay and time the Indian justice system takes, the Punjab and Haryana High Court granted pensionary benefits to a Haryana man who worked in the electrical department and sought legal help to get a pension 26 years ago. Sadly, neither he nor his wife are alive to enjoy the benefits granted to him.
Shri Niwas, an employee of Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited, earlier known as Haryana State Electricity Board, filed a petition in 1998 in the high court asking Haryana government to grant him pensionary benefits after his retirement.
Recently, the Haryana government claimed in the high court that benefits have been granted in this case. The HC disposed of the case given the government's statement that benefits have been issued to the legal heirs, if any, or have only been granted on paper. The counsel of Shri Niwas told HC on May 22 that the petitioner and his wife had passed away, a Times of India report said.
However, after this case, the high court issued directions to the Haryana chief secretary to form a list of all such cases from all the government departments so that they could be worked on as fast as possible.
The HC has granted liberty to all public sector undertakings and state organisations to seek a copy of all the unavailable paper books from the registry of the high court by routing their applications through the office of the Haryana advocate general.
According to a TOI report, Haryana has identified 31 cases of statutory corporations and two cases of statutory boards in card to the employees who have been waiting for their pensionary benefits for a long time. All the statutory boards and corporations have been instructed by the Haryana government to evaluate all such pending cases, the report added.
