MP-Poonam-MahajanThe chief minister, who holds the home portfolio, said weekly offs of police officers often get cancelled for security duties.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that police personnel would get a full day’s salary whenever their weekly off is cancelled.

Speaking in the Legislative Assembly, Fadnavis, who holds the home portfolio, said weekly offs of police officers, irrespective of their rank, often get cancelled for security duties.

“A hawaldar (constable) got allowance of Rs. 60 if the weekly off is cancelled. The allowance varied from post to post. We have now decided to hike the daily allowance and the police officer would get one day’s salary if the weekly off is cancelled,” Fadnavis said.
