Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC) is under statutory obligation to extend concession for Compassionate Appointment under relaxed standard of norms to the dependent family member of an employee who dies in harness and indigent circumstances while in service (inluding death by suicide, in case of missing employee if he had at least two years to retire and when an employee is retired on medical ground before attaining the age of 57 years).The limitation of such appointments is upto 5% of the direct recruitment made. Financial benefits received need not be a ground for rejecting the proposal viz-a-viz other adverse factors urging acceptance. In exceptional circumstances such appointment can be extended even when there is an earning member in the family.The services of an employees who has been extended Campassionate Appointment cannot be terminated.
It is, however, regretted that in ONGC, the above requirements are not being met with.
