SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir Police has decided to enhance the special welfare, for the next of kin of cops who die in service, from Rs 12 lakh to Rs 15 lakh.

The decision to this effect was taken at the 13th Central Police Welfare meeting chaired by Director General of Police S P Vaid at the police headquarters here.

“It was decided that the special welfare will be increased from Rs 12 lakh to Rs 15 lakh payable to the next of kin of the police personnel in the event of his or her death while in service,” a police spokesman said.

It was also decided that the ‘retirement gift’ be enhanced from Rs 50,000 to Rs 60,000.

“For Special Police Officers (SPOs), the special relief in the event of death has been increased from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 2.50 lakh,” he added.

Vaid said it was because of the support from the Government that the ration money was doubled and the ex-gratia relief to the martyrs was increased to Rs 20 lakh. (AGENCIES)
