NEW DELHI: The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the proposal for grant of organised group 'A' service (OGAS) to Group 'A' executive cadre officers of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) or paramilitary forces.

The Cabinet also gave the nod for the extension of benefit of Non-Functional Financial Upgradation (NFFU) and Non-Functional Selection Grade (NFSG) to the group A service officers of these paramilitary forces , said Union Minister Prakash Javadekar.

The decision will benefit around 1,200 such officers, he said while addressing a press conference after a Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Minister said that the benefit would be availed by the group 'A' officers of the Central Reserve Police Force, Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force, Border Security Force, Central Industrial Security Force and the Sashastra Seema Bal.

"It was the long pending demand of these paramilitary forces. Their officers of Group A service were not availing the benefits so far. It will also improve their financial as well as cadre status," Javadekar added.
