Assam Police Central Distress Fund
Home » Welfare Schemes » Assam Police Central Distress Fund

Aims and Objectives
It has been long felt that Assam Police employees and their families face a lot of financial hardships in case of any distress caused due to death/ accident or due to acute medical problems e.g. permanent disability due to injuries caused on duty or any other serious injuries on duty leading to hospitalization etc. In such cases, financial assistance from the government at times is a time consuming process and the relief required may not be immediate or complete. In consultation with senior officers and the different units of the Assam Police, a resolution was taken and thus the “Assam Police Central Distress Fund“ was established in order to provide immediate financial assistance to the employees and their families in addition to the regular financial assistance from the government. Subsequently, a bank account was opened in the above name in the State bank Of India. Finance will be created by voluntary subscription from willing employees of all ranks.

Only those employees who pay voluntary subscription will be eligible to receive relief from this fund.

Amount of Relief
Immediate financial relief is processed as per scale below:

a) In case of Death: - Due to extremist action/ accident on duty Rs. 1,00,000/-
b) Treatment for serious injury in accident on duty, in case of hospitalization, up to a maximum of Rs. 20,000/- subsequently raised to Rs. 50, 000/-
c) For getting artificial limbs for injury on duty:- Actual expenses incurred for treatment and purchase of artificial limbs.
d) Permanent disability for injury on duty – Rs. 50,000/-
e) Financial assistance is also given to Police officers/ men who become victims or sustain injuries in the hands of extremists even if such an incident takes place when they are not on duty.

Scheme of Voluntary Subscription
Voluntary subscription is collected as per the annual rate of subscription (given below) from the salary of August, to be drawn in September every year, from all willing employees of Assam Police –

The DDOs shall send the nominal roll of subscribers along with the Bank Draft in favour of the Assam Police Central Distress Fund. Records of the names of the employees who pay voluntary subscription, who thereby become eligible for relief from this fund, are maintained at the Assam Police Headquarters, Ulubari, Guwahati. All account records relating to the fund are operated at the Assam Police Headquarters.

Further, an employee, who has not contributed voluntary subscription, can opt for this scheme and become eligible for relief from this fund effective from the date of payment of voluntary subscription.
