The Maharashtra government has reviewed its policy of awarding people who give inputs on Naxals activities. It has now decided to increase the maximum award money for information on Naxals from Rs 60,000 to Rs 1 crore.
An informer could win a cash reward of Rs 1 crore for credible inputs on CPI (Maoist) general secretary Ganapathy.
Under the old policy drafted in 2006, a person was awarded between Rs 10,000 and Rs 60,000, based on the notoriety of the Naxal operative and his or her role in the rebel outfit.

The state has now drafted a new policy, Rs 60 lakh will be given for information on members of the politburo or the central military commission of CPI (Maoist). Rs 2 lakh will be given for providing information on members of the Maoist committee.
“The informer risks his life in collecting information about the activities of the Naxals. People will also be more keen on providing information about Naxal activities if the prize money is increased. The present amount is miniscule compared to the risk… and thereby there is a need to increase the award amount,” the home department said in a circular.
This new award scheme will be limited to the districts of Gadchiroli, Gondia, Chandrapur, Nanded, Yavatmal and Bhandara.
