To counter 'resignation wave', wage hike for SPOs on cards

Early Times Report

Srinagar, Sept 22: In the bid to prevent the allegedly "low paid" Special Police Officer(SPO)s from resigning from the duties in the wake of militant attacks, the government is contemplating to raise their wages.
Sources said the Raj Bhawan is concerned over the reports that some of the SPOs have left their jobs through video messages circulated on the social media.
Sources said the "government feels that the main reason" why the SPOs were thinking of leaving their jobs was their "low wages." "See these boys are paid around Rs 6,000 per month, which is too low. If their wages are duly hiked they will think twice before leaving the jobs," said a police official on the condition of anonymity.
He said till now it was only the SPOs who were "showing symptoms of leaving the job." "The genuine problem is that of their salary. If they are paid much in line with what the regular constables are paid it will be a different story," the police official said.
He said a proposal was being formulated to hike wages of the SPOs while the same would be sent to the Union Home Ministry for approval.
On September 21, three policemen were found dead in Wangam village in southern Shopian district, hours after their abduction by militants, triggering a wave of panic in the area and strong reaction from New Delhi which cancelled the proposed foreign minister-level talks with Pakistan. The Friday's killings forced many SPOs in the south Kashmir to announce their resignations, though the union ministry of home affairs and the J&K police denied any such move.
At least half a dozen videos surfaced on social networking sites, immediately after the killings, wherein policemen were seen announcing their resignations from service. But the police termed these videos as "rumours."
