Compassionate appointments in Public Sector Banks

The Scheme provides for compassionate appointment in the following cases :-
i) when an employee dies while performing his/her official duty as a result of violence, terrorism, robbery or dacoity; or
ii) when an employee dies within five years of his/her first appointment or before reaching the age of 30 years, whichever is later, leaving a dependent spouse and/or minor children.
The above information was submitted in a written reply to a question in Parliament on 30.8.2013 by the Minister of State for Finance Shri.Namo Narain Meena.
