High Court Ruling: Married Daughter Also Eligible For Govt Job After Dad’s Death
Allahabad: A married daughter is eligible for a government job on compassionate grounds just as a son is, after the father’s death. That was the ruling of the Allahabad High Court which was hearing a petition filed by one Manjul Srivastava, challenging an order rejecting her claim for such appointment following her father’s death, as she is married.
Justice JJ Munir passed the order stating that a daughter is regarded as a family member of a deceased government servant in the same manner as a son.
The court stated that if a married son is eligible for such an appointment, then the rejection of a daughter’s candidature only because she is married is discriminatory, reported Hindustan Times.
