Yogi govt's U-turn on ending services of 25,000 Home Guards

Updated 16 Oct 2019 12:43 PM

Under pressure from the Supreme Court to pay them at par with the Police constables, the Yogi Adityanath government on Tuesday terminated the services of 25,000 Home Guards in the Uttar Pradesh Police Department.

In an order, the state Police headquarters in Prayagraj stated that 25,000 Home Guards will be relieved from their duties.

"The decision to end 25,000 Home Guard services was taken on August 28 this year in a meeting chaired by Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary," said an order issued by Additional Director General (ADG) B.P. Jogdand.

More than 99,000 Home Guards also stand to lose regular employment, as the state government has cut the number of days they are required to report for duty from 25 to 15 days.
