വര്‍ദ്ധിച്ച പി.എഫ് പെന്‍ഷന്‍ നാലു മാസത്തിനകം നല്‍കണം.: ഹൈക്കോടതി

വര്‍ദ്ധിച്ച പി.എഫ് പെന്‍ഷന്‍
നാലു മാസത്തിനകം നല്‍കണം.:
 ഹൈക്കോടതി

സേവനകാലത്തെ അവസാനമാസം വാങ്ങിയ ശമ്പളത്തിന് ആനുപാതികമായി പി.എഫ് പെന്‍ഷന്‍ നല്‍കണമെന്ന ഹൈക്കോടതി വിധി അനുസരിച്ചുള്ള പുതുക്കിയ പെന്‍ഷന്‍ നാലു മാസത്തിനകം നല്‍കണമെന്ന് ഹൈക്കോടതി വിധിച്ചു. 

മാതൃഭൂമിയില്‍നിന്നു വിരമിച്ച ജീവനക്കാര്‍ സമര്‍പ്പിച്ച നാലു കേസ്സുകളിലാണ് ഈ വിധി. 2018 ഒക്‌റ്റോബര്‍ 12 ന് ഇതു സംബന്ധിച്ചുണ്ടായ ഹൈക്കോടതി വിധി ഇതിനെതിരെ ഇ.പി.എഫ് സ്ഥാപനം സമര്‍പ്പിച്ച പ്രത്യേകാനുമതി ഹര്‍ജിയില്‍ സുപ്രിം കോടതി ശരിവെച്ചിരുന്നു. ഈ വിധി ഇനിയും നടപ്പാക്കിയില്ലെന്ന് കാണിച്ച് എന്‍.പി രാജേന്ദ്രന്‍ തുടങ്ങി 94 മുന്‍ ജീവനക്കാര്‍ സമര്‍പ്പിച്ച റിട്ട് ഹരജിയിലാണ് 2020 ജൂണ്‍ 5-ന് ജസ്റ്റിസ് എ മുഹമ്മദ് മുസ്തഖ്  വിധി പറഞ്ഞത്. തുടര്‍ന്ന് ഇതേ സ്വഭാവമുള്ള മൂന്നു കേസ്സുകളിലും ഇതേ വിധിയുണ്ടായി. 

ഇ.പി.എഫ്.ഒ സമര്‍പ്പിച്ച റവ്യൂ പെറ്റീഷനും കേന്ദ്ര സര്‍ക്കാര്‍ നല്‍കിയ പ്രത്യേകാനുമതി ഹരജിയും ഇപ്പോഴും സുപ്രിം കോടതിയുടെ പരിഗണനയിലാണെന്ന ഇ.പി.എഫ് തടസ്സവാദം ഹൈക്കോടതി സ്വീകരിച്ചില്ല. 2018-ലെ കേരളഹൈക്കോടതിയുടെ വിധി നിലനില്‍ക്കുന്നുണ്ട് എന്നും ഇതു നടപ്പാക്കേണ്ടതാണ് എന്നും കോടതി വിധിച്ചു. 
അഡ്വ. വി.വി നന്ദഗോപാല്‍ നന്വ്യാര്‍ ആണ് ഈ കേസ്സുകളില്‍ ഹരജിക്കാര്‍ക്കു വേണ്ടി ഹാജരായത്.
