The father of the petitioner is stated to have died during his employment with the respondents on 28.1.2000. It would be pertinent to mention that the father of the petitioner was engaged as a Helper Cleaner in the office of respondent No.5.

For the aforesaid purpose, he is stated to have submitted an application dated 29.11.2000 (Annexure P1) followed by a legal notice dated 17.8.2005 (Annexure P2). It is, however, pointed out that no decision has been taken thereon till date.
