The ‘divorced’ daughter cannot be treated in the same way as the ‘widowed’ or ‘unmarried’ daughter


The Supreme Court has reserved a process of the High Court of Karnataka who argued that a divorced daughter will fall into the same class as a single or widowed daughter with the end of the civilian services of Karnataka (appointment on compassionate motifs), 1996.

The seat of Justices MR Shah and Aniruddha Bose emphasized that standards swaying the date of thought of the application ought to be the premise of thought of guarantee for empathetic arrangement.

For this situation, the writ candidate’s mom was utilized with the Government of Karnataka as Second Division Assistant at Mandya District Treasury. After she kicked the bucket, the writ solicitor documented an application for arrangement on merciful arrangement. That was dismissed on the ground that there is no arrangement given under Rule 3(2)(ii) of Karnataka Civil Services (Appointment on Compassionate Grounds) Rules 1996 for separated from girl.

In offer, the court summed up the perceptions made with regards to the award of arrangement on humane ground in prior decisions remembering the new one for N.C. Santhosh versus Territory of Karnataka (2020) 7 SCC 617.

  Alluding to the Rules, the court noticed that main ‘unmarried girl’ and ‘bereaved girl’ who were reliant upon the expired female Government worker at the hour of her passing and living with her can be supposed to be ‘reliant’ of a perished Government worker and that ‘an unmarried little girl’ and ‘bereft girl’ just can be supposed to be qualified for arrangement on sympathetic ground on account of death of the female Government worker.
