Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on 1 May announced a weekly off for the police personnel who work round-the-clock on all seven-day of the week.
The state government is also planning to recruit over 7000 more personnel to strengthen the Haryana Police, he said while inaugurating the office building of the Commissioner of Police in Gurgaon.
Over 12 thousand posts of police personnel are lying vacant in the state, which also increased the burden on other employees. Following it, the Khattar government will appoint ex-servicemen below the age of 50 years as special police officers on ad-hoc basis at a remuneration of Rs 14,000 per month.
Significantly, the office building, constructed on 5.5 acres of land at the cost of Rs 28 crore, has been given a silver rating by the Indian Green Building Council.
