Chief minister H D Kumaraswamy on Wednesday said he would discuss with Home Minister G Parameshwara the recommendations of the committee, headed by ADGP (recruitment) Raghavendra Auradkar, for 35% salary hike for policemen, starting from New Year.

Auradkar Committee had submitted its report on pay hike in September 2016.

911 two-wheelers given

Kumaraswamy was speaking at a programme to hand over 911 two-wheelers to policemen in the city. The two-wheelers were purchased at a cost of
Rs 7.11 crore.

The chief minister said the policemen were doing a good job in providing security to the citizens and hence, facilities have been made to help them get to the spots at the earliest.

Parameshwara said the Bengaluru city police were working effectively. Two-wheelers have been provided to the policemen to strengthen the logistics, he added.

T Suneel Kumar, police commissioner, said the vehicles would be allotted to 108 law and order police stations, 44 traffic police stations, two women police stations and other divisions in the city.

The Hoysala vehicles work under the central supervision under the commissionerate.
