Compassionate Appointments : Relative merit points and revised procedure for selection - Ministry of Defence

Compassionate Appointments : Relative merit points and revised procedure for selection – Ministry of Defence

D(Lab)
Sub: Scheme for compassionate appointment – Relative merit points and revised procedure for selection. 
The undersigned is directed to say that the Department of Personnel & Training under the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions is the nodal department for Government of India’s Scheme for Compassionate Appointments. While considering requests for compassionate appointment, a balanced and objective assessment of financial condition of the families of the applicants has to be made taking into account the assets and liabilities and other relevant factors. The main object of the Scheme is to alleviate the family of the deceased government servant/member of the Armed Forces from indigence and help it get over the emergency. Accordingly, vide Ministry of Defence I.D. No.271/93/D(Lab) dated 2.11.93, Ministry of Defence had developed a 100-point weightage system containing various parameters/attributes to decide the most deserving cases amongst the large number of applicants. The weightage system was revised in 2001 vide Ministry of Defence ID No. 19(4)/824-99/1998-D(Lab) dated 9.3.2001. Consequent upon implementation of the 6th CPC Report, parameters of all these attributes were further revised in 2010 vide MoD note No.19(3)/2009/D(Lab) dated 22.1.2010 and 14.5.2010. Presently, the attributes on 100-point scale are – Quantum of Family Pension (20 points); Terminal Benefits (10 points); Monthly income of family from other sources (05 points); Movable/immovable property held by the family (10 points); No. of dependents (15 points), No. of unmarried daughters (15 points); No. of minor children (15 points) and Left over service (10 points). As per the practice, compassionate appointment is given to the highest score earner.
2. Now, consequent. upon implementation of the 7th CPC pay structure, the financial parameters are required to be revised again. Certain organisations/ formations under Ministry of Defence have been requesting for revision of relative merit points and procedure for selecting the most indigent applicant(s) for compassionate appointment after death/medically boarding- out of the Government servant/member of the Armed Forces on whose income the family was wholly dependent.
3. As per 7th CPC structure, the minimum pension stands revised from if 3,500 pm. (as per 6th CPC) to 1 9,000 p.m. which approximately comes out to be 2.57 times the old pension. The Govt. of India have also approved this factor of 2.57 for working oUt revised pay, based on which DCRG, Family Pension and Leave encashment are calculated. Accordingly, the monetary parameters/attributes such as Family Pension, Terminal Benefits, Monthly income of earning member(s) and income from property and latest market value of the Movable/Immovable property have been revised by the multiplying the fitment factor of 2.57 or so, for arriving at the present-day weightage points. However, other non-monetary parameters/attributes viz. No. of Dependents, No. of Unmarried Daughters, No. of Minor Children and Leftover Service have been kept unchanged.
4. Accordingly, with the approval of the competent authority, various parameters on the loo-point scale of weightage system stand revised as under with immediate effect:-
(a) Basic Family Pension 1 Monthly Amount received under National Pension System
(20 points)
(b) Lump sum amount received by the family on death of Govt. servant (i.e. DCR Gratuity, GPF/PPF A/c balance, Leave Encashment, CGEGIS, LIC/PLI etc.) Lump sum Amount received under NPS etc.
(10 points)
(c) Annual income from movable/immovable property as well as Annual income earned by other member(s) of the family
(05 points)
(d) Movable/immovable property of the family (Latest Market Value) including Fixed Deposit/Bank balance etc. but excluding the lump sum amount received as mentioned in (b) above
(10 points)
(e) No. of dependents
(15 points)
(f) No. of unmarried daughters
(15 points)
(g) No. of minor children
(15 points)
(h) Left over service
(10 points)
(Total 100 points)
5. The revised guidelines will take place with immediate effect. However, cases already considered by the Boards of Officers constituted for considering requests for compassionate appointment as per the previous guidelines need not be re-opened.

6. However, for considering belated requests for compassionate appointment where the death/disablement of Govt. servant/member of Armed Forces took place long ago, weightage points towards ‘Terminal Benefits’ may be awarded in the following manner:-
(a) For cases where death of the deceased Govt. servant occurred prior to 9.3.2001, parameters of ‘Terminal Benefits’ given in MoD ID note dated 2.11.1993 will be applicable;
(b) For cases where death of the deceased Govt. servant occurred on or after 9.3.2001 till 21.1.2010, parameters of ‘Terminal Benefits’ given in MoD ID note dated 9.3.2001 will be applicable; and
(c) For cases where death of the deceased Govt. servant occurred on or after 22.1.2010 till 31.12.2015, parameters of ‘Terminal Benefits’ given in MoD ID note dated 22.1.2010 will be applicable.
7. All the concerned are advised to strictly follow these weightage points and guidelines keeping in view the instructions issued by the DoP&T/MoD, from time to time for assessing comparative merit of the applicants for compassionate appointment.

Dear Sir,
Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and feeder posts in a common grade - Fixation of Pay - Reg.
Ref.: (i) Deptt. of Expenditure, MoF's OM No.7/14/2010-E.III(A) dated 05.07.2010 and OM No.F-2- 1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015

Through this missive, your kind attention is drawn towards Department of Expenditure's OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015, whereby it was decided that, in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and subsequently promotional grade merged with the feeder grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, the benefit of pay fixation shall be allowed under Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

In this connection, it is stated that, some of the government employees, who have got promotion/financial upgradation between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, exercised their option to switch over to 6th CPC from the date of such promotion/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 as per option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure's OM dated 05.07.2010, as the same was more beneficial to them at that time. In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that, initially they opted to switch over to revised pay structure w.e.f 01.01.2006 prior to issuance of OM dated 05.07.2010.

Now, as per instruction of the Deptt. of Expenditure's OM dated 16.10.2015, the benefit of pay fixation is being allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, in those cases where promotional/financial upgradation took place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and who opted 6th CPC w.e.f. 01.01.2006.

However, it has to come to our knowledge that, the benefit of pay fixation allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, as per the provision of Deptt. of Expenditure's OM dated 16.10.2015, is not being extended to those employee who have opted to switched over to the Railway Servant (RP) Rules, 2008 with effect from the date of promotional/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 by exercising the option made available vide Deptt. of Expenditure's OM dated 05.07.2010(as mentioned in para 2 above), although fulfilling other conditions for getting the benefit of fixation as per the instructions in Deptt. of Expenditure's OM dated 16.10.2015.

It has also come to our knowledge that, some of the Railways have made a reference on this issue seeking clarification regarding extending the benefit of the above mentioned fixation to these employees after providing opportunity for re-option to switched over to the RS(RP) 2008 (or CCS(RP) Rule, 2008) w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of any subsequent date opted earlier. It is also understood that, Railway Board (Ministry of Railways) has referred this issue of revision of option to switch over to the 6th CPC in view of unforeseen events etc. to the Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of finance). Despite elapse of more than 12 months, no response has been received in this regard from Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of Finance) to resolve the genuine demands of these employees.

In this connection, it is stated that as these are the unforeseen developments or change of rule, the opportunity to revise option for fixation under the Rule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 may be given to these employees in these conditions, as it is more beneficial for them as now. Had they were aware with the fact that any such benefit of pay fixation would be extended in future (as has been provided vide Deptt of Expenditure's OM dated 16.10.2015), they would not have exercised their option to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. from their respective dates of promotion/financial upgradation as per the option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure's OM dated 05.07.2010.

In view of the above, you are requested to issue necessary clarifications in this regard to all the Ministries/Departments of the Government of India, so that, the aggrieved staff should get the opportunity to re-exercise their option under rule-6 of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 and get the benefit of pay fixation provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure's OM dated 16.10.2015, so as to avoid financial loss to the affected staff.
With Regards!
