Over 9000 personnel left paramilitary in 2010

Over 9,000 personnel have left central paramilitary forces this year owing to reasons varying from domestic problems to deployment in remote and difficult terrains, besides VRS schemes and death or disability.



New Delhi: Over 9,000 personnel have left
central paramilitary forces this year owing to reasons varying
from domestic problems to deployment in remote and difficult
terrains, besides VRS schemes and death or disability.

The highest attrition has been reported by CRPF with
3,522 personnel quiting their job, Minister of State for Home
Affairs Ajay Maken told Lok Sabha in a written reply today.
It was followed by BSF with 3,000 and CISF with 1,417
personnel leaving the forces. In total, the attrition rate up
to June 30 this year in the six paramilitary forces was 9,036.

"The main reasons for attrition are superannuation,
retirement, removal from service on account of disciplinary
proceedings, death or disability, resignation and voluntary
retirement.

They also include "family, personal or domestic problems,
separation from family for long durations, difficult duties in
remote or hard areas, sickness, mental depression, psychiatric
and emotional cases," Maken said.

Other reasons cited by him were fear of punishment for
wrong doings, attractive alternative employment and reduction
of qualifying service for full pension after the sixth Central
Pay Commission.
Maken said steps have been taken to prevent the high
attrition rates. They include transparent leave policy,
revamping of grievance redressal machinery, provision of
telephone facilities to troops, increased risk and hardship
allowance, yoga classes for better stress management, better
facilities and others.
