Class I job on compassionate grounds – yes, it’s possible!

Information availed under the Right to Information Act has revealed how set ruled and regulations can be overlooked by those in power to benefit their supporters. The matter pertains to appointment of an additional district attorney (ADA), a class I officer, on compassionate grounds, whereas the rules clearly state that only class III and class IV appointments can be made on such grounds. The story dates back to February 2007 when district attorney (vigilance department) Shimla, Ravinder Dhaulta, died on 09.02.2007 and then his son Vikas Dhaulta was finally given appointment as an additional district attorney vide a cabinet decision dated 13.07.2007. The family is said to be in good books of the then Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, who is believed to have taken special pains to make the out-of-the-way appointment.
