- There are numerous queries every day as from the readers being aspirants for their appointment in their respective banks on the grounds of compassion. I have been replying each of such queries but the task is onerous and cumbersome. It appears the candidates don’t bother to go through different posts released on the topic from time to time; if they do so the need for all concerned to raise individual queries does not arise and it saves time. The problem is in two parts:
- The guidelines on compassionate appointments released by the Government of India are actually the resumption of guidelines issued much earlier but discontinued later with the difference that they are not as liberal as those issued in the past. The stipulations are so grotesque and confusing that the bankers are having their own interpretations with the result that any benefit is hardly extended to the spouse or other dependent(s) of the family of the deceased. Bankers by and large prefer to pay ex-gratia in lieu of appointment to save the cost. This alone hardly serves any purpose to extending adequate relief to the family of the deceased employee.
The guidelines of the Government of India are effective from 5th August'2014 which means that those affected earlier to this date are altogether debarred of any relief. The demand from every nook and corner of the country is to consider all such cases without any fixed level for the purpose. All concerned channels are trying their best to secure release of such a bar but there is no sort of any development in the matter till now.
- We are working hard to secure justice to the aggrieved spouse or the eligible dependents of the deceased staff and as soon as some thing tangible emerges in the matter this shall immediately be published on this blog. Till then the aggrieved persons are advised to bear with us and wait for a visible outcome.
