Chandigarh, April 17: In response to yesterday’s appeal by Chief Secretary Karan Avtar Singh, Executive Committee of the IAS Association and senior officers of Punjab Police on Friday decided to urge all officers in their cadres to voluntarily contribute 30% of their salary for the next three months to the CM Covid Relief Fund.

At a meeting, senior IPS officers recognised the hard work being done by the Police officers of various ranks working in different districts of the State, at great risk to their lives, both from coronavirus and also from criminal and anti-social elements. They also appreciated the whole-hearted commitment of the Police rank and file to combat the challenge, especially the field officers, who are working on the frontlines of the fight against CoVID-19, even at great personal cost.

The officers decided that, given the urgent need to support the poor people suffering extreme hardships in this scenario, an appeal should be made to all officers to contribute 30% of their salary for the next three months to the Punjab CM Relief Fund-Covid 19, said DGP Dinkar Gupta.

The EC of the IAS officers, at a separate meeting, expressed similar sentiments and hoped that all IAS officers would set a strong example for other State Government officials to emulate. ACS Vini Mahajan said the officers were unanimous in the view that it was necessary to extend all possible support to the needy in this hour of crisis.
