In the mean time, it has come to the notice of the Government that many families of employees, who died in harness, are facing hardships since various appointing authorities could not make appointment on compassionate ground to the post of Lower Division Clerk in Regional Offices to deserving candidates for want of declaration of examining authority by the Government in terms of the said rule.
