Draft for surrender policy being given final brushes
1/29/2019 10:06:44 PM
As a result of growing anger against the killing of militants and the Government of India and the state Home Department are likely to issue a draft of new surrender policy for the militants. The new policy may be implemented during the current year. When the policy gets implemented it could reduce the level of anger and there could be a possibility for a high percentage of voting. Separatists plan to give a call for voting boycott, whether during the Lok Sabha or the Assembly elections. The motive of the new policy is to motivate voters to come out heavily and vote in strength The detailed draft of the policy has been circulated among the security and intelligence agencies for their comments, suggestions and feedback. The suggestions of security agencies will be incorporated in the final policy.
An official, wishing anonymity, said GoI wanted the policy to be incorporated before the upcoming Lok Sabha election but due to the policy still being in the draft stage, the final policy would be implemented after the new government is elected at New Delhi.
As per the proposed draft, the militants whose names figure in the Subsidiary Multi-Agency Centre, a conglomerate of security and intelligence agencies, would be eligible for incentives.
As per the revised policy, a militant can surrender only before divisional commissioners, district magistrates, top police officers and heads of operational units not below the rank of Commandant. Any militant who gives up his arms would be referred to as a "renouncer". According to the draft policy, a "renouncer" would be entitled to Rs 5-6 lakh as fixed deposit and would continue to get Rs 4000 monthly interest from the bank on the amount. After 10 years, the militant can get the deposit cashed out if CID accords him a good behaviour certificate the draft states.
The National Conference-Congress coalition government headed by Omar Abdullah in November 2010 had introduced a policy to facilitate the return of ex-militants belonging to J&K, who had crossed over to Pakistan. Routes like Joint Check Post Wagah, Attari, Salamabad or Chakan Da Bagh crossings on the Line of Control and Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi were identified for return of the former militants but the policy failed to yield the desired results as ex-militants started returning through Nepal.
The revised draft policy also mentions that a "renouncer" can seek self-employment under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) and Himayat schemes along with possible accommodation in the two capital cities of the State. This is the time for militants or those who think of joining militant outfits to surrender and as a renouncer get these benefits. That is a must of the youth in Kashmir because the security forces, including the Army, are after them and the way daily encounters take place in which two to four militants get killed. This way it is difficult for militants to survive because the security forces have decided to carry out multidimensional and multi-direction operations. And under these circumstances it may be difficult for any militant, including so called commanders, to escape death and parents too have started appeals to their wards to surrender.
