NFU dream of paramilitary to end; MHA moots withdrawal of tag

NEW DELHI: The home ministry is working on a proposal to do away with the ‘organised services’ status, which ensures timely promotion and salary hike of officers, and subsequently reject the demand for additional monetary benefits to officers of paramilitary and defence forces.

At a high-level meeting chaired by Union home secretary Rajiv Mehrishi recently, it was mooted that as Government officers were already enjoying “very high salaries”, such a non-functional upgrade (NFU) should be reviewed and withdrawn in consultation with the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC).

The meeting was held in the backdrop of a recent Supreme Court directive asking the Centre to re-think on giving monetary benefits to Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) such as CRPF, BSF, ITBP, CISF and SSB as was done in case of ‘organised services’, including the IAS and the IPS. (AGENCIES)
