Recognition to women for their bravery: J&K govt
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government
today said that due recognition is being given to women in the
state for their acts of bravery against militants.
In a written answer to the question of Indu Parwar
(nominated) in the state assembly today, Chief Minister Omar
Abdullah said, "Police medal for gallantry was awarded to
Inspector Shahida Parveen and Sher-i-Kashmir Police Medal for
gallantry to inspector Gulshan Akhtar in recognition of their
acts of gallantry and bravery in 2008."
He said that as and when warranted, recommendations for
national level recognition will be made to the Centre.
In reply to a question raised by MY Tarigami (CPIM), the
Chief Minister said that Special Duty Allowance (SDA) was
enhanced from 20 per cent to 50 per cent in respect of SSG
(Special Service Group) personnel on operational duties with
effect from January this year.
He said that the SDA is being granted to SSG in light of
the extremely difficult nature of their work and other risks
involved in the performance of the duties.
