Latest about the Ex-gratia  case at Delhi High Court:
The Ex-gratia case was appearing daily in the cause list as a regular case / part heard since 4th April 2014.  Due to  the reason of list of advance fixed cases and fresh cases in the criminal matters in the roaster of the Hon’ble Judge who had heard this matter in part and the same cannot be heard by any other judge, we have no alternative but to wait.  Now since 1st January 2015, the Hon’ble Judge has been assigned the Company matters and the matters part heard by him will be listed as Special Bench matters before him every Friday.  Our Counsels are watching the position and would appear as soon as the matter would reach the stage of hearing in accordance with its position in the list.
            We remain concerned about the delay which is beyond our control. However, we are in touch with the lawyers about the remedies.   One remedy may be that we may file an application before the Judge praying to release the matter from the list of part heard matters.  But the risk is then this matter would be again listed in Regular matters to be heard by the judge hearing service matters afresh.  Presently the matters filed in 2001-2002 are being heard in that category and the delay would be much more in our case as our matter is of 2008. It is why we have to wait till the matter is listed and heard by the same judge who had already heard the matter in detail and only Bank’s Counsel has to conclude.

On 21-10-2009 Supreme Court gave final verdict in SLP 15805-10/2008 and set aside Madras High Court's Orders against the OERS optees-Chandra Ranganathan & Ors and restored the Tribunal's order.Supreme Court's decision ,no doubt is a severe set back and shocking to those sadistic elements in RBI and Govt who always wanted the optees to be deprived of the benefits u/s 1O (1OC). 
As a consequence, CBDT was made to  refund  more than 
`50 crores as per the most conservative estimates, to the optees concerned along with the interest which was imposed upon the exchequre by the  action of then management of RBI that  allowed itself to be (mis)guided by the advice of a  money spinner CA for reasons which are not far to seek...>
