Meet Shri A.K. Verma, an executive engineer to India's Central Public Works Department (CPWD), He took an earned leave in December 1990 and since then, he never came back to work. What is weird his story is that it took his company 24 years and one month to fire him "for unauthorized absence from duty." Yes, His company took 24 years to realize that he should be fired.
Verma used extensions of his initial leave but they were not granted, But he still refused to come to work. In 1992, he received an inquiry against him and in 2007, the then-minister of urban development hrew charges on him. However, he was still not terminated until now.
