Government to recruit 500 PSIs soon

The state government would issue orders in a week for recruitment of as many as 500 police sub-inspectors (PSIs), Home Minister G Parameshwara has said


“The recruitment of PSIs was delayed due to some legal hurdles. In addition, job aspirants had sought to raise the maximum age limit to 30 from 28. All these issues have now been addressed,” Parameshwara said.

He was speaking to reporters here on Wednesday. The minister said that he had no knowledge about the proposed strike by policemen in June demanding pay parity. However, he said that the state government was committed to address pay disparity.

Talks would be held with the chief minister on adopting the salary structure implemented in other states.

Parameshwara said that it had been planned to construct 11,000 houses for police personnel and the work on around 5,000 units would be completed this year.

He said that the Congress high command would decide on appointment of a new president for Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee.
