By Bizodisha Bureau, Bhubaneswar, February 7, 2020: Odisha Cabinet on Friday approved the action-taken report of 5th Finance Commission.

Besides, it cleared the framing of Odisha Civil Service (Rehabilitation Assistance) Rules 2020 by repealing the old one and Rural Piped Water Supply projects in Sundargarh district.

The Orissa Civil Service (Rehabilitation Assistance) Rules, 1990 will be repealed with subsequent amendments.

As per the provision, the appointment will be given to an eligible family member of the deceased government servant who dies while performing the duty. The concept is based on the premise that the family in question will not be forced to starvation in the event of the sudden demise of the wage earner.

The existing rehabilitation rules ensure a maximum of ten per cent of the total vacancies in a year in Group C and Group D posts shall be earmarked to be filled by applicants under the scheme.

The government has now decided to raise the ten percent quota to fifty percent in Group D posts so that the applicants will get the maximum opportunity for appointment under the rehabilitation scheme.
