Remove arbitrary ceiling on compassionate appointment: Item No. 10 Explanatory Notes – Charter of Demands – All India Strike 2nd Sep, 2015

2015 SEPTEMBER 2nd ALL INDIA STRIKE – CHARTER OF DEMANDS AND EXPLANATORY NOTES
CHARTER OF DEMANDS.

Item No. 10 Remove arbitrary ceiling on compassionate appointment.


On the plea of a Supreme Court directive, Govt. introduced a 5% ceiling on the
compassionate appointments. When the matter was taken up by the Staff Side in
the National Council the Government was unable to produce any such direction of
the Supreme Court. Despite that, the official side refused to withdraw the said
instructions limiting the appointments to 5% of the available vacancies. In one
of the National Council meetings, presided over by the Cabinet Secretary solemn
assurance was given to the Staff Side that the issue will be revisited in the
light of the discussion, but nothing happened thereafter. It is pertinent to
mention in this connection that the compassionate appointments in the Railways
continue to be operated without any such ceiling. In the Department of Posts
hundreds of candidates selected by Selection Committee were denied jobs. The
list of selected candidates was scrapped. These candidates approached the Court
and obtained a favourable order. But the Court directive was made applicable to
only those who approached the Court. The standing Committee on Department of
Personnel in one of their report has termed the scheme of Compassionate ground
appointments as a sacred assurance to a fresh entrant that if he dies in
harness, his family shall not be left in lurch. Such an assurance is being
breached by the provisions of limiting such appointments to 5% of vacancies.
This condition, therefore, must be done away with.
