The Home Ministry has approved entitlement of air travel to all personnel of Central Armed Police Forces, CAPFs. The Ministry approved the entitlement of air travel on Delhi-Srinagar, Srinagar-Delhi, Jammu-Srinagar and Srinagar-Jammu sectors to all the personnel of CAPFs. 

The decision will immediately benefit approximately 7 lakh 80 thousand personnel of the CAPFs in the ranks of Constable, Head Constable and ASI who were otherwise not eligible earlier. This includes a journey on duty and journey on leave, that is while going on leave from Jammu and Kashmir to home and return.

This facility is in addition to the existing air courier services for CAPFs that have been steadily extended in all sectors by the Home Ministry to help the jawans cut down on travel time during their journey to and from home on leave.

In Jammu and Kashmir Sector, it may be recalled that Air Courier Service for CAPFs jawans was approved for the Jammu-Srinagar-Jammu sector. Subsequently, the Service was extended to cover Delhi-Jammu, Jammu-Srinagar, Srinagar-Jammu and  Jammu-Delhi sector in December 2017. 

The number of flights was further extended in December last year. The Home Ministry said, in addition, air support is also provided from Indian Air Force as and when required.
