The following broad points are for the knowledge of families seeking Appointment on Compassionate Grounds: -
 
Normal time limit for appointment on compassionate grounds is five (05) years from the date of occurrence of the event entitling the eligible person to be appointed on this ground.
 
This period of five years may be relaxed by the competent authority, subject to the following: -
i)             The case should not be more than twenty five years old as reckoned from the date of death.
ii)              The widow/widower of the deceased employee should not have remarried.
iii)            The benefit of compassionate appointment should not have been given at any time to any other member of the family
iv)       The circumstances of the case should be such as to warrant relaxation of the time limit of five years.
 
Offering of compassionate employment is not a matter of course. The financial condition of the family of the deceased employee is also kept in view while considering such requests. Since the object of C.G. appointment is to give immediate financial assistance to the bereaved family to tide over the financial crisis, while giving appointment on this ground it is not necessary for the administration to give employment as per qualification of the candidate or status of the deceased employee.
 
The appointment on compassionate ground, in the case of dependants of partially medically de-categorized staff who seeks voluntary retirement, will be considered only for the eligible Group D categories. Such an appointment will only be given in case of employees who are declared partially de-categorized at a time when they have at least 5 years or more service left. 
 
Educational qualification possessed by the ward/spouse of the ex-employee at the time of submission of application for compassionate ground is only to be considered.
 
No consideration of Compassionate Ground appointment in the case of casual labour. However, the GM can exercise his personal discretionary powers for giving appointment to eligible and suitable wards of such casual labour on compassionate grounds as Casual labour (fresh face)/ substitutes who dies in harness after having been assigned temporary status or who dies due to an accident while on duty provided the casual labour concerned is eligible for compensation under the Workmens Compensation Act 1923.
 
 
Normally the persons seeking appointment on compassionate grounds should fulfill the conditions of eligibility regarding age and educational qualifications prescribed for appointment to the posts or grade concerned. However, the upper age limit can be relaxed on merits of the cases. The lower age limit of 18 years for appointment in Govt. can be relaxed up to one year with the personal approval of the GM. Relaxation of the lower age limit beyond one year will require the approval of the Ministry of Railways.
 
Matriculation is the minimum educational qualification for Group C and erstwhile Group D. However, in case of appointment of a widow/wilfe not fulfilling the requirement of prescribed qualification, she can be appointed in Pay Band-I with Grade Pay Rs. 1800/- provided the appointing authority is satisfied that the duties of the post, erstwhile group D, against which she is being appointed can be performed with the help of some on job training. The ward, not in possession of prescribed qualification can be appointed as ’Trainee’, as defined in RBE No. 102/2012,  in Pay scale of 1S subject to acquiring minimum qualification within a period of 05 years.
 
The Suitability test for Group C posts comprises the Written test & Viva-voce (to be conducted on the same day), while only Viva-voce is conducted for erstwhile Group D posts. Sample paper of High School level can be seen on Annexure below. The level of the paper for Graduate level will be higher.
