Panaji, July 03, 2019 …. The Chief Minister, Dr Pramod Sawant asked the people entering into Government service to be sincere and have a humanitarian approach when dealing with the public. Dr Sawant was speaking at the function where letters of appointment of candidates to Government service on Compassionate ground were distributed to beneficiaries at the Secretariat, recently. Also present was MLA, Shri Prasad Gaonkar.

Dr Sawant said, “When you join Government service, you have to be the ‘sevak’ of the people.” The Chief Minister asked the beneficiaries to look after the dependents of those on whose behalf they have got the Government job. Dr Sawant said, “If we receive any complaint, we will take strict action against those who do not look after their dependents because the reason why you are getting this job is on Compassionate ground, wherein the family has lost its breadwinner, who was a Government servant.”

Dr Sawant concluded by asking the beneficiaries to constantly upgrade their skills, as this will increase efficiency in the job.

A total of 74 beneficiaries were given the letters of appointment. The  objective  of  the  Scheme for compassionate  appointment is  to  grant appointment  on  compassionate  grounds  to  a dependent family member of a Government servant who  has  died  while  in  service  or  who  is retired  on medical  grounds  before  attaining  the prescribed age, thereby  leaving  the  family without any means of sustainable livelihood.

Present on the occasion were Additional Secretary, Personnel, Shri Yetindra Maralkar, Under Secretary, Personnel, Shri Harish Adconkar,  Under Secretary, Personnel, Shri Shashank Thakur among others.
