I am seized of an extraordinary situation in which a spinster,retired central government pensioner underwent an unsuccessful operation for removal of a brain tumor and is now in coma.As luck would have it her only surviving sister,also a pensioner is in a critical state,but conscious.They have no other immediate family,but are being taken care of by kind hearted relatives.The situation warrants that they both need to be admitted to different institutions for continued care for which substantial deposits have to be made and monthly expenses are to be paid for.
In the case of the person who is in coma ,her pension for the past few months are in her bank account and she will continue to draw pension as long as she survives.The bank when approached,was willing to pay small sums as per norms upon production of a certficate from the doctors attending on her and other fomalities which is not practical.
In the case of the other lady who is conscious,her signature is inconsistent due to infirmity and has to be attested by the doctor every time to enable withdrawal of money from her account.
Is it possible to get a decree from a court directing the bank to release the amount required towards deposit and monthly expenses directly to the institution looking after the comatose lady?
What are the possible solutions in case of the second lady?
