A section of the Jammu and Kashmir Police personnel have not been paid their salaries for the last two months, documents accessed by Moneycontrol have revealed.

The police personnel including IPS officers from the Union Territory, who get their salaries under New Pension Scheme, have been informed that their salaries have been withheld because of “non-availability of budget”.

In a latest development, signals have been sent to various quarters saying “Salary for the month of November 2022 in favour of officers/ officials drawing their salary under NPS Scheme (641- pensionary charges) has not been drawn due to non-availability of budget. Inconvenience is regretted. The matter has been taken up with police headquarters J&K for allotment of funds.”

However, sources said the salaries for the month of October too have not been credited into their accounts.
