Designating the retired CAPF personnel as Ex-CAPF and Ex-Servicemen Status

The Ministry of Home Affairs has issued an OM to provide the status of “ex-central police personnel” to more than 15 lakh Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) personnel on par with the “ex-servicemen” status of the armed forces. However, the ministry has put the onus on the respective state governments, leaving it to them to offer the post-retirement benefits to the CAPF personnel.  The text of OM is reproduced here:-

  13. Govt haven't declared any separate quota for ex-capf, only requested to state govt. to give ex-servicemen status to ex-capf. It seems that quota of ex-servicemen may be used for ex-capf....wait for any clarification from govt in this regard.
