TWO HUNDRED FORTIETH REPORT
ACTION TAKEN BY GOVERNMENT ON THE RECOMMENDATIONS/ OBSERVATIONS CONTAINED IN THE TWO HUNDRED THIRTY EIGHTH REPORT ON DEMANDS FOR GRANTS (2022-23) OF THE MINISTRY OF HOME AFFAIRS
(Presented to Rajya Sabha on 13th December, 2022)
(Laid on the Table of Lok Sabha on 13th December, 2022)
Proposal to increase leaves to CAPFs personnel from 75 days to 100 days in a year
Recommendations/Observations in respect of which replies of the Government have not been accepted by the Committee
3.6.9 The Committee observes that the CAPFs function under much duress, given the nature of their duty which requires their postings in harsh climatic conditions. So, to ease their mental state and reduce stress, leaves at appropriate intervals are a necessity, so that they can spend time with their families. The Committee notes that the Ministry is examining/deliberating on increasing the leaves of CAPFs personnel. It recommends that the proposal should be considered positively and finalized at the earliest, as it would boost the morale of the CAPFs. Proposal for additional posts may also be positively considered for enabling the decision.
(Para 4.3.17 ibid)
3.6.10 The present dispensation governing leave provides 75 days of leaves (60 days earned leave and 15 days casual leave) for those who are posted in the field.
3.6.11 The modalities are being worked out so that jawans can spend about 100 days in a year with their families.
3.6.12 The Committee notes that at present, 75 days of leave are provided to the personnel who are posted in the field, and there is a proposal to increase that to 100 days. The Committee is of the view that the Ministry must speed up the roll-out of this proposal at the earliest for the benefit of jawans. The Committee would like to be informed about the progress made in this regard
