The Circular is still valid(DOP&T’s O.M. No.14014/6/94-Estt.(D) dated the 9th October, 1998). Please see consolidated instructions on seniority issued by DOPT.(http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:yGPpoKcBZYEJ:www.persmin.nic.in/WriteReadData/Estt/OM_20011_1_2008_Estt_D.pdf+No.200111112008-Estt.(D)+dated+11-11-2010&hl=en&gl=in&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESixmVRzpUAu3zhOiB8GHrSguS16w3ZVHYVG-bGt-DN9LS-6j-tOhEQgeTOwBFUvpAxVjBUoCsm8J1H5mQEFKWi1DaIAtsFmu9d_ jf0cFUMOYYiSIr06X8cqQae_S1pDoIDtLCMb&sig=AHIEtbQw4OhDWA0PnW0alDbkMMiVK4iCiw)

As per an order issued by the P & T Department, seniority of officials appointed on compassionate ground is from the date of their joining the service. In their case there is no question of 'Selection' to treat par with direct recruits appointed through a 'Selection' process on merit.
