Police Force Complains About Ration Money

KL Report

SRINAGAR

The Jammu and Kashmir Police officials across the state have complained that they have not received ration allowance for the last six months.

According to reports received by a local news agency, KNS, police force in the state is desperate to know why their rations allowances have been stopped during the last six months. “We used to get allowance since decades but as the new government came into power in the year 2009, we don’t know what happened to these allowances. For some months we received it and this allowance was stopped immediately,” said a police official while pleading anonymity. He further added that Rs 600 was being paid to them as ration allowances.

Pertinently, the former Director General of Police Kuldeep Khoda had facilitated enhancement of these allowances from Rs 450 to 600. The other paramilitary forces, CRPF, BSF get the benefit of Rs 1800 on monthly basis.

“Since this government took over, we seldom used to get the allowance but for the last six months not even a single penny was provided to us under ration allowances,” said another Police official again wishing not to be named. He further added that the grant is being issued by centre to the states.

The Director General of Police (DGP) Ashok Prasad when contacted told KNS, the issue has already been taken up with the authorities but the allowances have already been issued to the armed police in the state. The DGP further informed that it is the Home Department which provides these allowances and the matter has already been taken up with the concerned department.
