Treat paramilitary forces as ‘organised services’: HC

New Delhi, Sep 3 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Thursday directed the central government to consider all paramilitary forces, including the Central Reserve Police Force, Border Security Force and Indo-Tibetan Border Police, as “organised services”.

A division bench of Justice Kailash Gambhir and Justice Najmi Waziri said group A officers of paramilitary forces should be treated as “organised services” and thus be given all benefits including non-functional financial upgradation (NFU) from 2006.

The court allowed the pleas filed by more than 200 serving and retired officers of the paramilitary forces seeking the court’s direction for grant of NFU to them alleging the deprivation of the financial benefit is “affecting the morale and efficiency of the officers”.

They had sought direction for central government to treat them as “organised cadre” and grant them the NFU benefits.

“NFU is given to all other group cadre ‘A’ organised services but these officers were denied saying they have not been accorded organised service status,” said the plea.

The high court order will benefit about 10,000 officers, said senior advocate Rekha Palli representing the officers.
