As per the proposal approved by the state Cabinet which met under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday, these three awards will include CM’s Medal for Bravery, HM’s Medal for Excellence in Investigation and Haryana Police Uttam Seva Padak.

The officers and officials who are conferred these medals will be recognized with a medal along with colour display above the left pocket on the uniform, a certificate, scroll signed by the CM and home minister with a one-time cash reward of Rs 21,000. Six months extension in service after retirement for Group B and C police officials (if they are not availing of any other extension in service) will also be given to such personnel.
The Cabinet also decided to extend benefits to the sportspersons playing in various sports like boxing, wrestling, weight lifting etc, irrespective of their weight category.

The Cabinet also accorded approval to a proposal regarding exemptions in liability from paying of motor vehicle tax to educational institution buses of National Capital Region States other than Haryana including Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and NCT of Delhi while entering and operating in Haryana as per Reciprocal Common Transport Agreement. This will facilitate the seamless operation of educational institution buses of other NCR States in Haryana.

Haryana Cabinet has also approved the Haryana Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Rules, 2022 to put in place the system of assigning of preferential marks to non-transport vehicles through e-auction.
