'Police' and 'Public order' being State subjects, the State Governments have their own surrender and rehabilitation incentives to bring Left Wing Extremists cadres into the mainstream. The Government of India reimburses the claims made by the State Governments on the rehabilitation of surrendered LWE cadres under the Security Related Expenditure Scheme, subject to a ceiling of rs.2.5 lakh for higher ranked and rs.1.5 lakh for middle/ lower ranked LWE cadres. The additional incentives given for surrender with weapons/ammunition are also reimbursed which range from rs.10 to rs.35,000 per weapon depending on type of weapon surrendered from detonator to Light Machine Gun, Rocket Launcher etc. In addition, a monthly stipend up to rs.4,000 per month per surrenderee is paid for a maximum period of 36 months for vocational training for the surrenderee.
