Ex servicemen to get 6% reservation in police, land at low cost

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Friday said the government has decided to give six per cent reservation to ex-service men in recruitment in police force and provide land at low cost for establishment of their colonies.

"We have decided to give six per cent reservation to the ex-servicemen in the police force so they get re-employment," Swaraj said while addressing an election rally here today.

In a bid to woo ex-servicemen who form a large chunk of voter base in this village, which shares border with Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, Swaraj said the government has decided to provide land at low cost to the ex-servicemen so that their colonies could be established.

"We will encourage herbal farming so that an ex-servicemen can get extra earning from herbal framing," she said.
