New surrender scheme for naxals under consideration: Patil
Mumbai: Maharashtra government is considering a new surrender scheme for naxals and a proposal in this regard would come up for the state cabinet approval, Home Minister R R Patil said here on Saturday.
The revised scheme envisages increased compensation amount for surrendered naxals, the minister said, adding that a provision of Rs 2.41 crore will be made for the purpose.
The new scheme would help in ensuring that more naxals will surrender and would also be useful in speeding up development work in the naxal-affected region, he said.
