The matter of NCCT delink from NCUI which came up for hearing on Wednesday in the Delhi High Court went in for a long haul with the next date given after 4 months.
NCUI representative Ved Prakash Setia who had been to the Court to pursue the matter on Wednesday said the NCCT case could not be taken up due to piles of cases before the Court. The High Court has once again deferred the matter for hearing on 14 April, he added.
The lingering matter is benefitting everybody except the cooperative movement. Lawyers are charging fat fees while NCUI and NCCT look helplessly, said a NCUI top official on condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, efforts by NCUI’s top leadership to have an out of court settlement, also seems to have borne no fruit so far. The news of the hearing in the case of NCUI-NCCT has lost its importance as no progress takes place except postponements after postponements.
