These provisions are part of the new comprehensive anti-Naxal policy announced by the Chhattisgarh Cabinet on Friday by Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, a senior government official said on Saturday.
While the state has a Naxal surrender and rehabilitation policy and provisions for compensation during Naxal violence, this is the first time such a policy has been enacted on a wide scale, officials said.
Based on the region’s three-pronged “development, trust and security” strategy, the new policy addresses targets and works across government departments in education, health and conflict-affected areas, the regional official said.
