Does a woman who got job on "compassionate grounds" after husband's death become ineligible after remarriage? The Bombay High Court will decide this question in a writ petition that was filed last week. Ms Sangita, the petitioner, got the job with the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) after the death of her husband who was an employee there. But after she remarried, the MCGM sacked her saying that according to the rules a former employee's spouse who got job on compassionate grounds cannot be retained after remarriage, the petitioner claimed. However, Ms Sangita's lawyer argued before the division bench of Justices F.I. Rebello and C.L. Pangarkar on Tuesday that such a rule violates fundamental rights. The court has given the civic body two weeks to file a written reply.
