Short­listing of candidates with regard to CGIT case.

This is further to the guidelines given by the Central Office to Zonal Offices with regard to short­listing of candidates having worked up to 04.03.1991. It is now understood that Zonal Offices have directed the respective Divisional Offices under their jurisdiction to collect all the
data & lists received from Central Office. Further, they have been asked to sort out the data/lists and short­list the candidates in accordance with the guidelines stipulated by the
Central Office. 
All Units are expected to be in touch with their respective Divisional Offices and give the list of our candidates in advance to P&IR Department/DO, which we had provided earlier while admitting the case in the Supreme Court i.e. candidates having worked as at
04.03.1991. At the same time, all Units should bear in mind that the conditions & guidelines laid down by the Central Office is not in the true spirit of the Supreme Court Judgment dated
09.08.2016. Hence, All India Life upholds the Contempt Petition filed and the same is expected to come up for hearing during July 2017, after the Supreme Court re­opens on
03.07.2017.
Meanwhile, All India Life would be submitting a supplementary list of candidates in the Supreme Court, who have genuinely worked/working temporarily in LIC up to 09.08.2016, but
were not petitioners in the case. This was also informed to the C.O. Management during the discussion held by our Delegation on 25
th instant.

Thanking You

At the conclusion of the above discussion, Delegation put forth before the Management on the status of the following pending demands:­
i) 5 Days Week
ii) One more Option for Pension. Management admitted that there is no progress on the above issues.
iii) 2014­15, 2015­16 Bonus for eligible employees. Management informed that they are still awaiting instructions from the Ministry on this,
since they have answered all the queries long back as required by them.
iv)  On ‘Sign­out’ instructions where 2 factor biometrics has been implemented.
Management acknowledged the Protest Letter given by All India Life in this regard and
in reply tried to give a feeling that it is only connected for availing the meal coupon and so
‘Sign out’ requirement should be taken in a positive spirit.
However, Delegation refused to buy the Management’s justification and argued that
Management should refrain from implementing it, since it amounts to mistrust on the matured
employees of the Corporation.

UPDATE ON MEETING WITH LIC MANAGEMENT ON CGIT BY SH.MANOHAR VEIGAS, GENERAL SECRETARY, AILIEA

AIL 212017 (3)
To: All Zonal/Divisional Units:

Dear Friends,
Sub:- Our meeting with the Executive Director (Personnel) , LIC of India,
Central Office, Mumbai regarding implementation of the directions
given by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in CGIT case.

***************************

We would like to inform you that a delegation of our Association consisting of S/Sh. Manohar Viegas, Kalapi Desai and S.S. Jain, General Secretary, Vice-President and General Secretary of Co-Ordination committee Delhi respectively met with the LIC Management represented by Sh. Sharad Shrivastva, ED(P) assisted by two other senior officers at 11.30 am on 25/05/2017.
We wanted to know from the management regarding the implementation of the directons given in the judgment by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India for absorption of Temporary, Badli and Part time employees who have worked in LIC starting from 20/05/1985 till the date of the judgment i.e., 09/08/2016. Management said,” you have already filed a contempt petition against us.” to which we said since you have not cared to reply the legal notice and demand notice served by us , so much so even our Association has not been taken in confidence in this matter , nothing has been shared so far with us by the management, so we were constrained to file the contempt petition before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. Our main petition was decided by the Supreme Court of India in our favour thus conceded all our demands as enumerated in our main petition. We further told that the review petition and curative petition as filed by the Management were also dismissed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court. Workers covered in this case are very much agitated since for more than three decades have already gone when the case was raised and filed for adjudication. The copy of the contempt petition was served to the LIC advocate dully acknowledged.
Management informed us that lists of all candidates who have worked as Temporary, badli and part time during the period from 20/05/1985 to 04/03/1991 have already been sent to all the LIC Zonal Offices. They are scrutinizing these lists. It was very specifically conveyed by the management to our delegation that the lists of candidates who have been represented by the parties before the Hon’ble Supreme Court only will be entertained. The management has specifically stated further that the applications received in the Central Office from the workers in response to the advertisement given by the management on 31/07/2015 will be entertained as per rules.
On behalf of our Association in very strong words management was told that the said stand of the management is not acceptable to us. It was also pointed out that had the aforesaid action could be legally binding then the matter would have been over then & there itself. What was the necessity thereafter for the management to file the review and curative petitions before the Hon’ble Supreme Court which were both dismissed. We stressed that all workers represent by us from 20/05/1985 to 09/08/2016 have to be absorbed unconditionally. Management continues to take a stand that they are acting as advised by their advocates.
Our meeting concluded with the assurances given by the management that our Association will be taken in confidence and the informations relating to the case will be shared with us after the management has come to some conclusion.
We have informed the management that we are likely to submit a supplementary list of workers who are members of our Association.
Management knew it well that it is only and only our Association who raised an Industrial Dispute in this matter.

At the beginning of the discussion itself ED(P) told us that All India Life has filed the Contempt Petition, but why?

We told Management very clearly that you have failed to share with us since 22nd February 2017 and equally did not implement the Supreme Court Judgment dated 09.08.2015. The Management immediately acknowledged the same and proceeded for further discussion.

THE INITIAL FEED BACK ON LIC RESPONSE TO LIFE’S CONTEMPT PETITION

We feel pleasure in sharing our feed back on the response to the contempt petition served by LIFE General Secretary Shri Manohar Veigas upon the LIC management on 08/05/2017. Pursuant to the petition, LIC begun the process of absorption although in a manner in which utter chaos and ambiguities, anomalies abound. Those who waited for a period of more than three decades are being once again denied their rightful employment simply by putting irrelevant and ambiguous conditions for eligibility as a candidate for absorption as per the orders of the Honorable Supreme Court. The entire exercise by LIC management is against the spirit and soul of the Judgement, which says that permanent employees should be recruited to execute jobs of permanent nature in the corporation.
We have been receiving thousands of queries from country wide regarding the procedure to be adopted and we have also tried our best to define the procedure and other modalities as shared by zonal authorities of different zones to our zonal office bearers.
We also are awaiting the written notification from LIC Management for further action on the absorption issue. Till any written communication is received by LIFE we have to wait patiently before any more updates.
However it is requested that the Bio data form on this website be filled either online or downloaded and sent offline to enable us to assess the candidate’s claim to employment and provide adequate and necessary support where required.
The response to the initiative of LIFE in the CGIT case has been overwhelming and we are thankful to all of you for it.
