    I want to draw your attention towards the arbitrarily kept pending cases of compassionate ground in some Govt Deptts. They are delaying such appointment to excuse that they filled over 5% quota in the last 5 years so at present they are not taking interest to fill exist pending cases of compassionate ground as well as fill all Direct Recruitment Posts, without Compassionate Appointment. Kindly tell me with proof to solve such problems.
