Mumbai: Maharashtra government has decided to provide jobs on priority basis to a family member of the state employees, who fall to terrorist activities while on duty.
"The employment will be with immediate effect as per the availability of the post and without a waiting list," Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan said here today.
As per the 2007 government resolution, recruitment for jobs to be provided on compassionate grounds, are done from a waiting list.
"Because of the list, those from families of officers and employees who are killed while on duty, do not get employment on time," he said, adding that the new rule will be applicable to officers and employees from grade 1 to 4.
According to the new rule, kin of those killed in naxalite or terror attacks will be given priority.
