Sub : Remove the arbitrary ceiling on Compassionate Appointments.
The above demand was discussed as Item No.11 of the standing committee meeting of the National Council (JCM) held on 7-3-2019. The extract from the minutes of the above meeting is given below for your kind ready reference
Staff side placed the following views:
(a) The 5% ceiling may be increased to at least 10%
(b) Dependents of employees who dies/medically incapacitated while performing his duty; Like accident on workplace etc., should be granted immediate appointment on compassionate grounds, as a special case without including the same in the 5% ceiling limit.
(c) In the MoD, compassionate appointment to the service personnel are granted within the 5% of Civilian vacancies which is not justified and their appointments may be adjusted from amongst the vacancies of the service personnel.

Till date we have not received any instructions from the DOP&T in this regard. It is therefore requested that as agreed by the Chairman the above mentioned 3 proposals given by the Staff Side may be implemented by issuing necessary Government orders.
