Dear Client,
Compassionate appointment in brief is a concept, recognizes that the family of an employee of the State, who has died while in service, is left to fend for itself without its wage earner on whom it was dependent.

As for your query yes the dependent of the deceased is entitled for compassionate appointment. However the dependent could be the wife, son or daughter of the deceased.

Moreover your appointment on the compassionate basis is to be considered after 7 years, however the ORDNANCE FACTORY BOARD, MINISTRY OF DEFENCE, AYUDH BHAVAN kolkata vide order dated 27.06.2016, decided to lift the ban of 3 years. But eventually it is required from us to satisfy the court for delay.
