NOINO President Shri Prakash Javadekar (MP, Rajyasabha & BJP spokesperson) was on a visit to Mumbai on
Friday 24th February 2012. He met the Current-in-charge of LIC, Shri D K Mehrotra. He was accompanied by Shri Ganesh Kamath, GS, NOINO; Shri Dattaraj Prabhukhanolkar, GS, NOINO, Mumbai unit; Shri Manish Patankar, President, Mumbai unit & Shri Suryakant Gawade, EC member, Mumbai IV.
The meeting was a short one. After exchanging pleasantries, Shri Javadekar touched on the following issues:-
1. One more pension option:--- Shri Mehrotraji replied that this was not possible at the moment due to the Government's approach in this matter. Moreover, LIC has the capacity to bear the burden of the remaining 14% employees who have earlier not opted for pension. But GIC may not be able to do so for their employees. Hence there is a hitch. However, the management will again make efforts to secure the option once again. Javadekarji said that he would also be using his good offices to secure this option.
2. EFEAP:----- Shri Javadekarji, who is well aware of all the important issues in LIC, also raised the issue of problems due to EFEAP implementation. Shri Mehrotra replied that all attempts were made to resolve the issue on an urgent basis.
3. Problems due to transfer of Housing loan portfolio to LICHFL:- Shri Mehrotra replied that efforts were being made to remove all impediments.
4. Biased & Arrogant attitude of SDM's in Srinagar(NZ) & Ahmedabad(WZ):---- Javadekarji stressed the fact that NOINO will not tolerate the arrogant & biased attitude(towards NOINO members & activists) of the SDM's in Srinagar & Ahmedabad & said that the management should immediately rectify the matters. Shri Mehrotraji assured to look into the matter immediately.
NOINO will continue to follow-up all the pending issues till its logical end.
