The IGP of Punjab, Faisal Shahkar, has introduced the IGP Merit Certificate for the Hafiz-e-Quran children of Punjab Police personnel.
Details indicate that kids who are memorizing or have memorized the Holy Quran would receive Rs. 1 lac under the IGP Merit Certificate, and that a notification has also been released in this regard.
The notification specifies that the officers or officials have 15 days to complete and submit the form. The Punjab Police Welfare Fund would award cash prizes to the qualifying children after verification.
Earlier this month, Chief Minister (CM) Punjab, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, had announced to provide free education to children of Punjab Police’s martyred officers.
He announced this decision at the ceremony of the ‘Police Martyrs Day’ that was arranged in Lahore on 4 August and declared that the provincial government is working on introducing legislation for free education for the children of the martyred police officers.
He asserted that the new legislation will also raise the compensation sum granted to the grieving families of the killed officers. He gave the families of the martyred police officers assurances that their loved ones’ sacrifices would not go in vain and that the country would always hold them in the highest regard.
