I have a similar issue. My name is Cynthia, 61 years of age, from Mumbai. My husband of 36 years, left for office on 03rd Feb 2009 and did not return home. Details as follows -
03/02/09 - Husband went missing.
06/02/09 - Missing person complaint lodged at police station.
01/03/09 - Letter sent to office requesting opening locker for any clues.
15/03/09 - RTI application sent to office for more information.
27/04/09 - Application made and authorised by police station to show missing person on television.
27/04/09 - Confirmation from CID branch of showing on television.
15/10/09 - Letter from office acknowledging missing complaint.
15/03/10 - Memo from office regarding willful absence.
31/03/10 - Order from office intimating retiirement from service.
09/09/2010 - Memo from office regarding pay deduction for missing period and confirming that the same WILL NOT be treated as "BREAK IN SERVICE",
29/10/10 - Certificate from police stating inability to trace the missing person.
02/11/10 - Letter from office stating grant of family pension and retirement dues on submissing of police certificate and indemnity bond.
10/11/10 - Police certificate submitted.
12/11/10 - Letter form office acknowledging receipt of police certificate and providing breakup of dues.
15/02/11 - Indemnity bond submitted.
The office wanted an indemnity bond that is done through registrar. We appproached multiple lawyers who said the same is not possible anymore as that process does not exiist any longer. Only notarization can be done. we even visited the registrar who threw out the bond straightaway.
Right now given the behaviour of the administrative people at the office, they are trying to purposefully create hurdles in the process. Inspite of having got all possible confirmation letters, they are now saying issue is gone to legal and they will sack my husband from service due to his absence, etc.I am having a very hard time as have no means of sustenance. On top of that, am a heart patiient. Am eligible for the central government health scheme, but the office is not releasing that card too.
I need any help I can get in getting this issue sorted.
Thanks and regards,
Mrs Cynthia Fernandes
