DIMAPUR, JULY 28: A former employee of the State’s Youth Resources and Sports Department has filed a case against the Department authorities over their failure to release a certain amount of money resulting in the retired employee being deprived of pension benefits.
According to the petitioner Abau Viluo, a retired Typist, an amount of Rs 35,07,700 was incurred in construction activities related to departmental staff quarter.
“It is the contention of the petitioner that the said amount had been incurred during the service tenure of the petitioner with the requisite consent of the respondent authorities but the respondent authorities did not make the payment during the petitioner’s service tenure. Due to non-disbursal of the said amount till date, the petitioner’s pension benefits have not yet been finalised”, stated an order issued on Thursday.
Justice Manish Choudhury ruled that notices returnable in four weeks be issued to the respondent authorities.
He fixed the next hearing after 4 weeks.
