J&K Surrender Policy to Win over Local Militants. Worried over the growing number of local youths taking to militancy, the Jammu J&K Govt has drafted a policy for rehabilitating those willing to shun arms and return to the mainstream. Almost 100 youths have joined the militant ranks this year so far. Militants placed on the list of the Subsidiary Multi-Agency Centre a nodal agency comprising officials for security and intelligence inputs will be eligible for incentives. A militant who has surrendered will be referred to as a “renouncer”. He will surrender only before the designated authority’s divisional commissioners, district magistrates, top police officers and heads of operational units not below the rank of Commandant. Entitled to Rs 5 lakh-6 lakh as fixed deposit, the “renouncer” will be able to withdraw the money after the lock-in period of a minimum three years, subject to continued good behaviour as certified by the CID.
