The sensational superannuation case which was listed to be heard in the Supreme Court today has been reportedly deferred again. According to source, the case was listed in number 6 for hearing today. However, the case could not be heard as the SC had hearing on some other important and sensational case. It was also learnt that two other cases listed ahead of the superannuation case are also deferred. Source also said that the SC may likely take up the superannuation case tomorrow, however, the same can only be confirmed tomorrow. It may be recalled that the Nagaland Senior Government Employees Welfare Association (NSGEWA), who were affected by the Superannuation Act had earlier challenged the Act in the Gauhati High Court. However, the High Court had given its judgment in favour of the state government following which, the Association had taken the case to higher court and filed another petition in the Supreme Court. As per the amended Act, Nagaland government had re-fixed superannuation age of the government employees at 60 years or 35 years in service which ever is earlier. The Act came into effect during the latter part of last year affecting thousands of state government employees. It may be mentioned that following the NSF demand to fix the length of service at 33 years or 60 years of age or whichever comes first, the government of Nagaland introduced the Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment (2nd Amendment) Bill 2009 and passed the same and ultimately became an Act.
