Allowance for medal winners hiked

New Delhi, May 16, 2013, DHNS:

The Union Home ministry has asked states to enhance monetary allowance for police personnel decorated with gallantry medals for exhibiting valour.

The ministry wrote on May 10 to chief secretaries of the states and heads of paramilitary, investigating and intelligence agencies to hike the allowance, which is 50 per cent more than the existing remuneration, to recipients of President’s Police Medal for Gallantry and Police Medal for Gallantry with immediate effect.

A police officer who has got President’s Police Medal for Gallantry gets Rs 1,500 per month.

Now, under the revised schedule, he will get Rs 3,000 per month.

Similarly, the police medal for gallantry and each of bar to police medal for gallantry recipients will now get Rs 2,000 per month instead of Rs 900 per month.

Home Department Under Secretary G C Yadav has written that “The payment of the allowance continues to be in force subject to all other terms and conditions contained in respective statutes rules governing the award of the above medals.”  The Finance Ministry has already given its consent to the Home Ministry to hike the monetary benefit to decorated officers. 

 In 2008 also, the ministry had increased the remunerations for valiant officers by 50 per cent.

 Earlier, the President Police Medal winners were getting Rs 750 per month while police medal recipients were getting Rs 450.
