In order to facilitate the processing work of applications for employment on compassionate ground, a common check-list was introduced vide Memo. No. 201-Emp dated 30.12.2010 as per Annexure-P of the memo ibid. However, a question has arisen as to whether the check list, mentioned in Memo. No. 201-Emp dated 30.12.2010, would continue to be in effect consequent upon introduction of the West Bengal Scheme for Compassionate Appointment, 2013, issued under Notification No. 251-Emp. Dated 03.12.2013 and subsequent changes in the guidelines issued under Notification No. 26-Emp., dated 1st March, 2016.

After careful consideration of the matter, the Governor is pleased to approve a modified proforma Check List (Annexure-P) in supersession of the previous checklist vide Memo. No. 201-Emp dated 30.12.2010.

All concerned are now being requested to follow the check list in course of dealing with such prayers for employment on compassionate ground in die-in-harness/ retired incapacitated cases.

It is to be noted that Part-I to III of the Annexure are applicable in general to all the establishments and Part-IV of it is applicable only to the Secretariat establishments.

Establishments other than the secretariat may also follow the proforma at Part-IV for their own use after making necessary alteration to it.

This issues is subject to the condition that the check-list will be read with relevant G.Os in force.
