KATHMANDU, Oct 8: The Armed Police Force (APF) will remain under the center within the federal setup.

Homework is underway to see how the force will be operated under the federal setup, informed Home Minister Janardan Sharma, while inaugurating a conference for APF Senior Officials in the Capital today.

In a different context, he stressed the need for formulating policies to increase salary and perks of the security personnel to encourage them, while ending the perception that a good income would be made only through a peace keeping mission in a foreign land.

The process to formulate an internal security police has been in the final stage, he informed.

Also on the occasion, APF Inspector General Singha Bahadur Shrestha said the conference will serve as a way to formulate policies and strategies to strengthen APF’s organisational management.RSS
