Sub: - Scheme for Compassionate Appointment – Relative Merit Points and Procedure for selection

The objective of the Scheme for Compassionate Appointment is to grant appointment on compassionate grounds to a dependent family member of a Government servant dying in harness or who is retired on medical grounds, thereby leaving his family in penury and without any means of livelihood. It is to relieve the family of the Government servant concerned from financial destitution and to help it get over the emergency. Keeping, I view the objective of the Scheme, the existing instructions relating to compassionate Appointment have time and again been reviewed/modified/simplified so that the system finally derived at shall be more transparent, efficient and uniform in nature.

The efficacy of the Scheme is based on its transparency. It is this aspect, which is foremost and hence while considering a request for appointment on Compassionate grounds by a Committee, a balanced and objective assessment of the financial condition of the family has to be made taking into consideration its assets and liabilities and all other relevant factors such as the presence of earning member, size of the family, ages of the children and the essential needs of the family etc. This is done to assess the degree of indigence among all the applicants considered for compassionate appointment within the prescribed ceiling of 5% of the direct recruitment vacancies.

The existing position has been reviewed in this Department and it has been decided by the competent authority that to achieve the objective of the scheme of the Compassionate Appointment and to ensure complete transparency, merits of the cases can be conveniently decided by allocating points to the applicants based on various attributes indicated in the references of DOP&T from time to time. Accordingly the Department has worked out a system of allocation of points to various attributes based on a hundred point-scale as indicated in the tables below: -

IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE, CASES WHERE THE WIFE OF THE DECEASED OFFICIAL HAS APPLIED FOR COMPASSIONATE APPOINTMENT FOR HERSELF, SHE SHALL GET 15 ADDITIONAL POINTS AS GRACE POINTS. THIS WILL BE IN LINE WITH THE GENERAL PRINCIPLE THAT THE WIDOW NEEDS TO BE GIVEN PREFERENCE FOR COMPASSIONATE APPOINTMENT.

The above system of weightage not only awards objectivity to the entire method but also ensured complete transparency and uniformity in the selection process. The above method should be strictly followed with immediate effect, keeping in view the instructions issued by the Department of Personnel & Training from time to time.

This has the approval of Secretary (Posts)

At present the applicants for the Compassionate appointment are getting chances in three consecutive years. As a result of this, for a few years, there would be a mixed category as applicants. ( 1. The applicants, who received terminal benefits and pension in the pre-revised Pay . 2. The applicants, who received all benefits as per the 6th CPC.) Hence the new mark system should be restricted only to the second category.
