DOPT OM [Para 3 of O.M.  No. 14014/3/2011-Estt(D) dated 26.07.2012]  10.  BELATED REQUESTS FOR COMPASSIONATE APPOINTMENT (a)  Ministries/Departments can consider requests for compassionate appointment even where the death or retirement on medical grounds of a Government servant took place long back, say five years or so. While considering such belated requests it should, however, be kept in view that the concept of compassionate appointment is largely related to the need for immediate assistance to the family of the Government servant in order to relieve it from economic distress. The very fact that the family has been able to manage somehow all these years should normally be taken as adequate proof that the family had some dependable means of subsistence. Therefore, examination of such cases would call for a great deal of circumspection. The decision to make appointment on compassionate grounds in such cases may, therefore, be taken only at the level of the Secretary of the Department/Ministry concerned. (b)  Whether a request for compassionate appointment is belated or not may be decided with reference to the date of death or retirement on medical ground of a Government servant and not the age of the applicant at the time of consideration. 

Therefore on the basis of above information, you may apply for the job

The application for compassionate job in this case is nothing but a wastage of time stationary and money.


Given facts indicate that she is perhaps a known earning daughter of two government servants in case she's unmarried and not employed anywhere or earning less than 9,000 rupees per month she is entitled to get the family patient of his father as well as mother.


Energy need to be directed to fruitful purpose of being added in family pension
