Punjab amends rules, jobs for martyrs’ married siblings

Chandigarh, November 18

Amending the existing Policy of Appointments of Honour and Gratitude, the Punjab Cabinet on Wednesday gave its nod to provide jobs in the state services to married siblings of three unmarried soldiers killed in Ladakh's Galwan valley in June.

The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh in recognition of the supreme sacrifice made by Sepoy Gurtej Singh, Sepoy Gurbinder Singh and Lance Naik Saleem Khan.

As per existing rules, only dependent family members or next of kin are given government jobs in such cases. But in the case of the three soldiers no dependent family member existed, hence the government decided to make an exception and give jobs to their married brothers.
