Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court has ruled that even a married daughter of a deceased government employee is eligible to get a job on compassionate grounds.

The court held that excluding a married daughter on the grounds of sex is considered illegal and unconstitutional.

Justice M. Nagaprasanna on December 15, observed that the marital status of a son doesn’t make any difference in law to his entitlement for seeking a job on compassionate grounds while considering a writ petition filed by Bhuvaneshwari V.

Puranik. Justice M Nagaprasanna directed the state government to consider the petitioner’s claim and pass an appropriate order within a month. He struck down the word “unmarried” in Rule 2(1)(a)(i), Rule 2(1)(b) and Rule 3(2)(i)(c) of the Rules, 1996, holding it violative of Articles 14 and 15 of the Constitution.

The Judge said that a married daughter doesn’t cease to be a part of the family after marriage and the law cannot just assume that a married son alone continues to be a part of the family.
