No. E(NG)I-2016/IC-2/1

The General Manager(P)s,
All Zonal Railways & Production Units
(As per standard list).

Sub : Recording of educational qualification acquired during intervening period by compassionate ground appointees.

As the Railways are aware, wards/dependents of railway employees who die in harness/retire on medical grounds are given appointment according to their educational qualification on compassionate grounds against vacancies available in various Group “C” categories. However, in certain cases, such appointments are delayed owing to various reasons. During this waiting period, the candidate may acquire higher educational qualification(s) which were not mentioned at the time of application. AIRF have raised the issue in PNM with Board (Item No. 28/2016) that aid) educational qualifications as are acquired by compassionate ground candidates during such intervening period should be recorded in their Service Book.

The matter has been considered and accordingly it has been decided that at the time of actual appointment, if a compassionate ground appointee claims to have acquired educational qualification not mentioned by him/her earlier when applying for Compassionate Ground appoinment, his/her request for relevant entries in his/her Service Book may be examined on merit, on case to case basis and if considered feasible, such, entries in the Service Book may be made after due verifications. Railways may please ensure that the process of appointing on compassionate ground may not be halted because of the above dispensation.
Hindi version will follow. Please acknowledge receipt.
