Home guards seek job regularisation

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 24 - The All Assam Trained Home Guard Association, which has been demanding regularisation of jobs along with other facilities for the personnel recruited as home guards, has asked the State government to fulfill their long-standing demands.

The home guards� association has held several discussions with the State government and the authorities concerned regarding their fundamental demands.

�After several rounds of discussion in the past, we were assured of some positive steps to address our long-pending issues, but, even after six months of the assurance, no concrete results came out. Even the issue of a pay hike was not properly addressed by the authorities and we got a meagre hike in the backdrop of skyrocketing prices of essential commodities,� said a statement issued by the association.

The association also said that other issues affecting the home guards remained totally unaddressed.

The association has also demanded amendments to the Assam Home Guards Act 1947 and increase in the upper age limit of constable recruitments in the Assam Special Reserve Force (ASRF) and Assam Industrial Security Force (AISF) battalions from 38 years to 45 years. It further asked the government to give 80 per cent priority to the home guards while recruiting police constables.
