Review of Scheme for Compassionate Appointment in the light of the 6th Pay Commission recommendations.
The above order issued by DOPT and it exposed that for appointment on compassionate grounds, in exceptional circumstances Government may consider recruiting persons not immediately meeting the minimum educational standards. Government may engage them as trainees who will be given the regular pay bands and grade pay only on acquiring the minimum qualification prescribed under the recruitment rules.
The emoluments of these trainees, during the period of their training and before they are absorbed in the Government as employees, will be governed by the minimum of the – 1S pay band of Rs.4440-7440 without any grade pay. In addition, they will be granted all applicable Allowances, like Dearness Allowances, House Rent Allowance and Transport Allowance at the admissible rates.
The same shall be calculated on the minimum of -1S pay band without any grade pay. The period spent in the -1S pay band by the future recruits will not be counted as service for any purpose as their regular service will start only after they are placed in the pay band PB-1 of Rs.5200-20200 along with grade pay of Rs.1800.
