17th Dec. each year Pensioners Day is celebrated for the memory of Shri D S Nakara. We all know that the honourable Supreme Court’s Constitutional Bench in DS Nakara case had given the land mark Judgment on 17.12.1982, which has given remarkable dignity to the Pensioners. Till then Pension was considered as “bounty” by general public but DS Nakara Judgment declared it “Deferred Wages” giving the Pension we receive a respectability which we cherish so much. We are equally thankful to the Judges of the Honourable Supreme Court which gave this Judgment.
Let us propagate this message on this day even amongst ignorant pensioners and all others. Happy pensioners day once again.
