Bengaluru, DHNS: 35% increase recommended by Auradkar committee. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday said the Finance Department has been directed to positively consider the Home Department’s recommendation to hike the salaries of constables, head constables, assistant sub-inspectors, sub-inspectors, inspectors, deputy superintendents of police and superintendents of police (non IPS) by 35%.

He was speaking at the Police Commemoration Day at the Karnataka State Reserve Police?grounds in Koramangala after paying tributes to the policemen who had laid down their lives in line of duty.

“The Committee to Examine Disparities in Pay and Allowance of Police headed by Additional Director General of Police (Recruitment) Raghavendra H Auradkar has submitted its report to Home Minister G?Parameshwara. I don’t have differences with the Home?Minister on implementing the recommendations. I have directed the Finance Department to consider the Home Department’s proposal positively,” said Siddaramaiah, who holds the Finance portfolio.

Referring to the recent incidents of suicides by a few policemen, the chief minister said, “Policemen should think about their families before committing suicide. The government has decided to appoint counsellors in every district to prevent policemen from committing suicide. I request policemen and farmers not to commit suicide.”

As many as 473 policemen across the country, including 22 in the state laid down their lives while serving the country in the last one year. “I pay rich tributes to them on behalf of the state and the people,” he said.

School for police children

Siddaramaiah referred to the deaths of PSIs Mallikarjun Bande and Jagadish while on the duty and DySP Kallappa Handibag’s suicide. The government considered the three cases as special and extended financial help to their family members, he said.

Policemen serve round-the-clock and hence have very little time for their families. The state government is planning to open CBSE schools for the children of the policemen. The government is constructing a Rs 15-crore residential complex in Bengaluru for policemen coming to the city for official works. A decision has been taken to open police canteen at every unit, Siddaramaiah said.
