The government department concerned will consider allotment of land only at places where the land is available and can be spared for the purpose after meeting the requirements of the government in the first instance.

Meanwhile, the state government has decided to engage additional 4,500 Special Police Officers (SPOs) out of ex-servicemen of the Army and Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) besides enhancing the honorarium of already working 5,500 SPOs to Rs 18,000 from Rs 14,000 per month, the release stated.

At present, 5,500 SPOs are already working in the state police on monthly remuneration of Rs 14,000. The decision to enhance their honorarium will put a burden of Rs 21.60 crore on state exchequer.
