The Haryana Cabinet today on compassionate grounds decided to provide a government job to a woman whose father died during Operation Pawan in 1989.
Rohtash Singh's daughter Jaswanti Devi has been provided the position of clerk, an official release said.
The post was offered by relaxing the norms of a policy that gives employment in Class III and IV grade jobs to a dependent of an Army or a paramilitary personnel from the state who died in the line of duty, it said.
Singh died during Operation Pawan in Sri Lanka on May 14, 1989, the release said.
A decision to this effect was taken in a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar here.
The woman was 12 years old when he father died. Now, she has requested the government go give her the appointment as per the policy, the release said.
She holds MA and B.Ed degrees, and is eligible for the post of clerk. The present government has so far made 152 appointment under the policy, it said.
