3. Para 7 (a) of the circular dated 23.07.2021 provided that as on 31.12.2019, total sanctioned post in MTS cadre is less than MTS in position strength in EPFO. Though a regional office or a state may have vacancy in MTS cadre but as an organizational perspective, in-position strength is over-saturated and, hence, no appointment in the cadre of MTS shall be considered by any cadre controlling authority till further direction from Head Office. However, in view of limited number of vacancies in MTS cadre, it has now been decided that cases where applicant is eligible for MTS cadre and it has been established that there is more penury in the family, ACC (Zone) may consider compassionate applications for the post of MTS subject to the availability of vacancies under compassionate quota in MTS Cadre in the concerned State/Zone.

4. Zonal offices and Regional Offices are requested to ensure that applications for compassionate appointment are processed in the light of the aforementioned instructions and earnest efforts are made to ensure their timely disposal.

5.The above guidelines will come into force with immediate effect and will be applicable to only prospective cases i.e. cases where date of death/retirement on medical grounds/date of missing is after the date of issuance of the circular.

This issue with the approval of the Competent Authority

Yours faithfully,

(Uma Mandal)
Additional Central P. F. Commissioner (HRM)
