Sir/ Madam ,

Please refer to Board’s letter F.No.A.12012/52/2018-Ad.III B dated 15th May, 2019 wherein a standard operating procedure based on a 100-point scale was circulated for compassionate appointment to ensure transparency and maintain uniformity and to avoid litigation in the selection process.

4. In case of tie even after applying the factor of per dependent available income, then the left-over service of Government  Servan t can be This is suggested as it is felt that longer the  left-over service of the deceased, the more is the impact on the family. Applicants related to Government  servant with  higher  left-over  service would be considered over the one with lesser left-over service.  In case of tie even then, the next factor can be No. of physically /mentally challenged dependents & unmarried /divorced daughter(s). In case of tie even then, the next factor can be age of the applicant, with  elder applicants given preference.
