The Karnataka High Court has ruled that children born of second marriages are also entitled to compassionate employment.

Justice R Devdas passed an order to this effect last month, in a petition filed by one Lohit Gowda. Gowda had filed an application for compassionate employment with the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) after his father, a former employee of the BDA, passed away. However, in March 2018, the BDA rejected his application on the ground that Gowda was born out of his father's second marriage.
