JAMMU, July 5: Non-Gazetted Police Pensioners’ Welfare Forum held protest to highlight their demands, here today.
Large number of non-gazetted police pensioners assembled outside Press Club here and raised slogans in favour of their demands.
The protest was led by Chairman of the Forum Ajit Singh, who while speaking said that Government is giving the effect of its Order No 229-F of 2014 dated 7-10-2014 regarding pay anomaly, from the date of order though the effect should be given from the year 1996 when fifth Pay Commission was implemented throughout the State leaving only police department.

He criticized the Government and the Police Department for ignoring the just and genuine demand of the poor police pensioners, stating that since the Forum launched their struggle to get their rights, Government is constituting committee after committee but doing nothing to redress the issue.
