Chief Minister Police Rank constable HC & ASI upgradation committee.
The Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Parvez Khattak in light of the letter of Inspector General of Police Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Nasir Khan Durrani has constituted a special committee for the up-gradation of pay scale and shuhadda package of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police.

The committee will comprise of Minister for Labour & Mineral Mrs. Aneesa Zaib Tahir Khaili, Minister Finance Muzffar Said, Advisor to CM for Information Mushtaq Ghani, Secretary Finance and Secretary Home & Tribal Affairs at its members and AIG Finance CPO as secretary of the committee.

The committee has been directed to submit its report within 15 days keeping in view the existing pay scale of constabulary and junior rank officers and shuhadda package of the Punjab and Islamabad police. It may be recalled that vulnerability of police officers in KP is much higher than other provinces as they have been declared targets of the militants who keep on attacking them for their demoralization. On the other hand KP police fought the war against terror bravely and courageously and sacrificed more than 1200 precious lives in line of duty. Despite all these professional achievements and sacrifices unfortunately their perks and financial compensation are far less than other provinces. It merits mention here that previously too the IGP had moved a case of up-gradation of KP police on 15th June 2016 which was retuned back on the ground that the government wanted to maintain a balance with other provinces as a that time they had not upgraded the pay scales. Later on the IGP wrote a letter on 29th Nov. 2016 for reviewing the earlier decision in this regard. However keeping in view the morale of the constabulary the IGP had once again taken up the case with the provincial government for the up-gradation of constables from BPS-05 to 07, HC from BPS-07 to 9 and ASI from BPS-09 to BPS-11 and Shaheed package for constabulary from Rs. 3 million to Rs.10 million, in January 2017 on which the government has finally constituted the above mentioned committee.
