Srinagar, June 26: The Director General of Police (DGP), Kuldeep Khoda today said that Jammu and Kashmir Police Organization has launched several schemes for the welfare of its jawans, their families and retired personnel.
He said that during past six months from January 2010 till date Rs. 5.16 crores have been paid to benefit families of deceased police personnel out of Special Contributory Police Welfare Fund (SCPWF).
The DGP was speaking at a senior police officers meeting held at Police Headquarters (PHQ) today. He said several schemes have been launched in this regard, adding that Special Contributory Police Welfare Fund is under implementation to provide succour to the families of personnel who die in-service irrespective of the cause of death.
It was decided that the decision to this effect would be taken by the Central Police Welfare Fund Committee in its next meeting which is being convened shortly.
Elaborating. Khoda said that since January, 2010 more than Rs. 4.44 crores have been disbursed as special relief to the NOKs of deceased police personnel. Likewise during the period Rs.38 lacs have been disbursed to the NOKs of police martyrs as ex-gratia relief. He disclosed that more than Rs. 2 lacs have been paid as ex-gratia to the serving police personnel who have received injuries while performing their duties.
He further said that 30 retired police personnel have been benefited by disbursing relief to them during the period.
In addition Rs. 2.50 lacs are paid as insurance claim. However, the families of martyrs get additional Rs. 5 Lacs as ex-gratia relief, he added.
The DGP said that this special relief package has been possible because of the initiation of (SCPWF) which was started way back in 1983. Since this fund is exclusively generated by monthly contribution from police ranks with no supplementation from Government, the relief to the families of such personnel was enhanced from time to time with corresponding increase in monthly contribution.
The DGP highlighted the significance of contributory fund raised in the police organization to provide relief to the next of kins of deceased police personnel, adding that there was need to further promote this spirit for the overall welfare of force.
