Two J&K Police Women Battalions with 2014 posts approved by SAC

TSL News Network

JAMMU, JAN 14: The State Administrative Council (SAC) which met here today under the chairmanship of Governor, Satya Pal Malik accorded sanction to the raising of two women battalions of Jammu and Kashmir Police along with the creation of 2014 posts of various ranks for these battalions.

          The posts include 2 posts of Commandants, 6 posts of Deputy Commandant, 14 posts of Dy.SP, 14 posts of Inspector, 4 posts of Inspector (M)/ Tel, 46 posts of Sub-Inspector, 4 posts of Sub-Inspector (M)/Tel, 46 posts of Assistant Sub-Inspector,  10 posts of Assistant Sub-Inspector (M), 320 posts of Head Constable, 8 posts of Constable (Tel), 1402 posts of Constables/Tel, 138 posts of Followers, 2 posts of Medical Officer, 4 posts of Medical Assistant and 2 posts of Nursing Assistant.

            The two battalions will be raised exclusively for women on the pattern of Border Battalions.  The move is aimed at equipping the J&K Police to effectively deal with crimes against the women and give due representation to the Women in the Police force.

          Due to inadequate representation/availability of women police personnel at various levels and to address the issues of gender based violence faced by women, State Government had taken up the issue of raising of Women Police battalions with the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).

          The recruitment to these two women battalions will be completed within one year from the date of sanction. The raising of a women battalion will involve financial implications of Rs 235.86 Crore of which Rs 105.11 Crore will be provided by Government of India and Rs 129.94 Crore will be State share.
