Why In News?

On October 21, 2023, Bihar Director General of Police (DGP) RS Bhatti told the Police Memorial Day program at the Special Armed Police (B-SAP 5) complex in Patna that financial assistance of Rs 25 lakh will now be given to the families of the martyred policemen of the state. Earlier the compensation amount was only Rs 2 lakh.

Key Points:

  • This decision has been taken for the welfare of the policemen and this amount should be made available to the dependents of the martyr as soon as possible, so that their problems can be solved.
  • This amount will not be payable in case of policemen committing suicide. Along with Indian Police Service officers, Bihar Police Service officers will also be able to get such benefits. On the initiative of Police Headquarters, about lakhs of policemen have been included in this benefit.
  • This amount of grant will also be given in case of death during the raid. At the same time, this amount will also be given in cases of death during militant encounter, criminal encounter, landmine, Naxalite attack, riot, accident or death during treatment after getting injured in these incidents.
  • The DGP has also announced changes in the accommodation and transfer-posting policy of Bihar Police. These changes will be completed soon to maintain balance between the personal life and duty of Bihar Police officers and personnel.
  • The state government is working on a systematic housing policy, so that the families and children of all the officials and personnel who are on duty can stay at one place, study and live a normal life.
  • The policy of second transfer posting of Bihar Police is also being changed, so that there is a balance between personal responsibilities towards your family and responsibility towards duty. Considering that the number of women is going to be one-third, a change in policy is necessary.
  • It is known that every year Police Memorial Day is celebrated on 21st October.
  • On October 21, 1959, 10 brave soldiers were martyred in an attack by Chinese invaders on a base of the Central Reserve Police Force in the snowy heights of Ladakh on the India-China border. After this, in the conference of Inspectors General of Police in 1961, it was decided that every year on 21 October, Police Memorial Day would be celebrated throughout the country, since then this tradition has been going on.
