  1. The applicant in this Original Application has prayed for the following reliefs:-

    I. Hon''ble Tribunal may kindly be pleased to direct the respondents to consider the case of the applicant No.2 for grant of compassionate appointment and make the payment of pension to applicant No.1 with all consequential benefits holding therein that Deshraj Yadav is not entitled to apply for compassionate appointment and not entitled to get compassionate appointment being not the son of legally wedded wife Bhagunti Bai and as Bhagunti Bai gave her consent for considering the case of Raja Bhai, her son, for compassionate appointment.
