Reason for denial of appointment on compassionate ground
The appellant sought information related to the denial of compassionate appointment to the dependent of his deceased father who was an employee of the bank. The Public Information Officer (PIO) provided part information. During the hearing, the appellant submitted that the information provided did not specify the reasons behind the denial of compassionate appointment to his mother after the demise of his father. The respondents clarified that all the available information had already been provided to the appellant.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) stated that if there is any file noting or any other record showing the reasons for the bank deciding not to give any compassionate appointment to the mother of the appellant must be disclosed. The Commission directed the PIO to provide the photocopy of the file noting or any other record from the relevant file in which the case of the compassionate appointment of the mother of the appellant had been considered after the death of his father. If no such file noting or record is available, the PIO should state the same clearly.
