Mother of the petitioner moved an application dated 22.12.2004 before respondent no. 2 for appointment of the petitioner on compassionate ground under the scheme for appointment on compassionate ground of dependents of deceased employees. The grievance of the petitioner is that his request for appointment on compassionate ground has been rejected by respondent no. 3 vide impugned order dated 7.12.2006 on the ground that provision of compassionate appointment has been abolished and replaced by payment of compensation in lieu thereof.  The order dated 17.12.2006 is as under :-

           Counsel for the petitioner has urged that copy of the circular letter abolishing appointment on compassionate ground issued by the Union of India has not been supplied to the petitioner despite repeated requests made by him as such it may be filed by the respondents in their counter affidavit. He placed reliance on application dated 20.11.2006, appended as Annexure 5 to the writ petition moved by the Secretary to the Shreyas Gramin Bank Employees' Association, Aligarh Unit inter alia stating that the provision for giving  money in lieu of compassionate appointment to the dependent of a deceased employee is not applicable to the Shreyas Gramin Bank as it was not a member of Indian Bank Association.

No other point has been argued by the petitioner.

A bare perusal of Annexure 5 to the writ petition reveals that the Shreyas Gramin Bank Employees' Association, Aligarh  was in possession of the aforesaid circular letter on the bais of which it has been stated that Shreyas Gramin Bank is not a member of Indian Bank Association as such, the aforesaid scheme does not apply to the said Bank.

The contention of counsel for the petitioner that the petitioner has not been supplied the copy of the aforesaid instructions issued by Union of India is contrary to what appears from perusal of record.

The scheme has been abolished as such, neither any direction for appointment on compassionate ground can be issued to the respondents nor High court, by order, can direct the respondents to appoint the petitioner.  His case cannot be considered now for compassionate appointment as the scheme for consideration of dependents for compassionate appointment has been abolished and the petitioner does not have any legal right for such relief.. Fishing and roving enquiry only on the mere allegation that copy of circular letter has not been supplied to the petitioner cannot be directed by this Court.

For the reasons stated above, the writ petition fails and is dismissed. No order as to costs.

Dated 7.3.2007
