In case of [Dr Pradeep Rangrao Nalawade v. Poona College of Pharmacy]

The Bombay High Court on Monday emphasised that the right to pension is a valuable right vested with government servants which should not be denied on technical grounds.

A Bench of Justice GS Patel and Neela Gokhale observed that pensionary provisions should be interpreted liberally as a social welfare measure.

“The right of pension is a valuable right vested in a government servant. It is a social welfare measure as a post retirement entitlement to maintain the dignity of an employee. Pensionary  provisions must be given a liberal construction as a social welfare measure…the very basis for grant of pension must be kept in mind, i.e., to facilitate a retired government employee to live with dignity in the winter of his life and thus such benefit should not be unreasonably denied to an employee, more so on technicalities,” the order said.
