He wrote to the case worker (via post to the Sheffied address) referring to 245CB and that he should have been awarded 3 years instead.
He got a response yesterday from caseworker that according to 245CB, it was correct that he was granted 2 years, as his last leave granted immaterial of whether it was post 6th April 2010, was indeed granted based on rules in place prior to 6th April 2010. (not the exact text, but in similar lines)
Update 2: My friend then wrote back to the case worker, stating that he had made this inference about 245CB, based on the experiences of people listed in this thread (and provided a reference to this thread) and also quoted experience of another friend who applied along the same timeline who was granted 3 years.
After this the case worker wrote back to him to return the BRP's, which my friend did, and he has now received new BRP's with a grant of 3 years.
Again 3 cheers to this forum (Moderators, respected gurus and all other members who are providing help and advice) and to all the members who are sharing their personal experiences for the benefit of others.
