The Allahabad High Court has set aside the order of the Chief Medical Officer of Meerut not to include a married daughter in the definition of family. The court has said that even a married daughter comes under the definition of family. On this basis, an order has been issued to give job to the married daughter in place of the father under the deceased dependent quota.
The High Court has given this order after hearing the petition of Aruna of 119-J Block Colony Mohalla Khajuri, Door Parikshitgarh, Meerut. Aruna challenged the order of the Chief Medical Officer dated 11 December 2018 in the High Court. In this, the CMO rejected Aruna’s application for job in place of father in the deceased dependent quota, saying that she is married and does not come under the definition of family.
