The principles of consideration for compassionate appointment have been firmly settled and have been reiterated by the supreme court. The object of compassionate appointment is to enable the family of the deceased employees to tied over the sudden financial crisis due to death of the bread earner which has left the family in penury and without means of livelihood, it is an exception to the normal rule of public employment, it is a concession. The basic intention to grant compassionate appointment is that on the death of the employees, his family is not deprived of the means of livelihood, It can not be claimed by way of inheritance. Compassionate appointment cannot be treated as a Bonanza. It is not disbursement of gift. It is not sympathy syndrome. It is meant to provide minimum relief for meeting immediate hardship to save the bereaved family from sudden financial crisis due to death of sole bread earner. If employer finds that financial arrangement made for family subsequent to death of the employee is adequate members of the family can not insist for compassionate appointment. There is no general or vested right to compassionate appointment. Compassionate appointment can be claimed only where a scheme or rules provide for such appointment. Where such a provision is made in an administrative scheme or statutory rules, compassionate appointment must fall strictly within the scheme or, as the case may be, the rules.
