Compensation for disabled jawans increased by government
June 20, 2017
Compensation for paramilitary personnel who have suffered a 100% disability due to injuries in action has been increased from Rs 9 lakh to Rs 20 lakh.
This will apply to all central paramilitary personnel whose disability has come about during service on or after 1 January 2016.
For cases with less than 100% disability, the compensation amount is likely to be reduced in proportion to the degree of disability. There are 10 lakh personnel in eight forces that come under the home ministry. They are: Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Force (BSF), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP), Assam Rifles (AR), National Security Guards (NSG), Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) and National Disaster Response Force (NDRF).
These forces are stationed in some of the most hostile environments like Jammu and Kashmir and the northeastern region.
