The revised RMP to be applied are as laid down in Annexure 1.

3. Periodicity of CRC meeting: In respect of all applications for compassionate appointments received from January to December of a calendar year, the CRC meeting will be held by all circles once in a year, between January to March of the next calendar year.

4. Cut-Off Date: Date of death or date of retirement on medical grounds will be considered as cut off date for the purpose of assessing the indigent condition of the applicant under RMPS for compassionate appointment.

5. Circle specific vacancy: The vacancies to be utilised by a Circle for compassionate appointment in a year should not be more than 5% of the vacancies in Direct Recruitment Quota in Group C Posts in a year.

6. Place of Posting: As far as administratively feasible, applicant appointed on compassionate grounds will be posted at a place as per preference indicated or near his /her home town or in same division in which the applicant is residing, subject to availability of vacancies.

8. Date of effect of these guidelines: These revised guidelines will come into effect from 1st October 2020. Cases recommended by previous CRC to be considered by subsequent CRC will be considered based on these revised point system. All cases closed so far will not be reopened.

9, Instructions issued by DoPT from time to time related to compassionate appointment will continue to be guiding factor while deciding the cases.
