THE STATE Cabinet, meeting here on Tuesday, may approve amendments in the rules concerning appointments in Government service on compassionate grounds and consider a proposal to double the discretionary fund of the Chief Minister from Rs 4 crore to Rs 8 crore.
The Cabinet meeting, to be chaired by the Chief Minister Shiv charan Mathur would discuss the sub-committee’s report on appointments on compassionate grounds.
Sources said the proposal provides giving a lump sum amount of Rs 1 lakh to the dependents of the daily wagers who were employed by December 1988.
In case of the dependents of regular employees, if no posts were available in the department, they would be considered for employment against contractual teachers posts. If the posts of contractual teachers were not available, the dependent would be given a lump sum amount.
The sub-committee has also proposed that in future if any post were not available to accommodate the dependents of the deceased, five years’ salary of the deceased on the basis of his last drawn salary would be paid to him/her.
The meeting would also consider a proposal from the Health Department whether the rules for regular appointment of the doctors already appointed on contractual basis should further continue for two years.
