CAT refuses plea for compassionate appointment


The Central Administrative Tribunal has refused to interfere with the decision of the UPSC to defer the appointment of a person on compassionate ground saying it suffered from no legal infirmity.

The Tribunal passed the order on a plea of one Mohan Singh, whose father was an UPSC employee, seeking directions to the Commission to make his compassionate appointment expeditiously.

"The applicant's prayer in relation to impugned intimation (relating to consideration of his name for compassionate appointment) conveyed to him is misconceived as it relates to furnishing of information under the RTI Act, which is devoid of any legal infirmity based on which it can be quashed," the Tribunal, comprising Member D P Sharma, said.

It noted that the the Compassionate Appointment Committee had considered Singh's name against such vacancies.
