No salary cut enforced on police officers & jawans: DGP Nagaland clarifies

Kohima, March 31 (NE): The DGP Nagaland, T John Longkumer, IPS clarifies that Police Department has not enforced one day salary cut from police officers and jawans towards the Chief Minister Relief Fund.

There is an erroneous report going around that Police Department has enforced a one day salary cut from police officers and jawans towards the Chief Minister Relief Fund. This is not true, DGP Nagaland said on Monday, March 30, 2020. The contribution is voluntary, he added.

He also disclosed that, the IPS and NPS Association and the branches in the Police headquarters voluntarily contributed Rs. 25 Lacs to the Chief Minister Relief Fund on Monday.

Contributions are voluntarily and accepted whether from a jawan or an officer and no amount is fixed. It’s an amount decided by the contributors, whether it’s Rs. 10 or 10,000 it’s upto the individuals, he further stated.

The DGP said ‘We have decided that giving is a Christian virtue and nobody can question or judge that fundamental right of the individual’, and hope that this would clarify any doubt.

If anybody has further questions, they can address to the official social media pages (Facebook & Twitter) of Nagaland Police, he added.

Shri T. John Longkumer, DGP, President & General Secy of IPS Association, President of NPS Association, on Monday, March 30, 2020 handed over a cheque of Rs. 25 lacs to the Chief Minister Relief Fund on behalf of the Association.
