The order is not being implemented as EPFO have raised about Exempted/un exempted category issue after implementing in some cases.The EPFO is making a mockery of Supreme Court Judgement and harassing pensioners.Govt is also silent despite various assurances given on the floor of Lok Sabha and also to various MPs who did raise the issue on personnel levels also. Really painful. more  
The amount of pension paid by EPF is not sufficient to survive even 1 day in a month. it should be abolished as it does not serve purpose of provided subsistence support. more  
Supreme court must intervene and tell EPFO to implement its order intoto within a time frame. If it does not follow, SC must sent notice to the Union Govt for not implementing its order. more  
Govt & Epfo does not want to implement this. The junior HRD minister Mr. Kusgwah who later resigned on the eve of MP Rajasthan election, made reirees'representatives' who met him believe that he is favourably considering the implementation, later in a TV interview (before he resigned) said Govt can't implement it to every one & can give it to only those who had approached SC & got the verdict. He also mentioned that that GOvt is considering Rs 2000 minimum pension. All that boils down is that the GOvt is trying to take us for a royal ride. Now with the election code coming up in next 2 months don't expect any action from this Govt. We should organise to file a case in SC requesting a pro active implementation by Govt/ Epfo. Since EPFO has all the information in their records, they should inform all eligible the amount to be paid for availing enhanced pension & the amount of pension with arrears that they are eligible. EPFO also should adjust the amount to be paid from the arrears. Now EPFO is insisting to pay the amount first.' more  
This issue has been a struggle since a long time and hope before elections we see light of the same.
What people are asking are what has been promised by the govt. more
