 All of the JSS troops that were on the demobilization list were given Tk. 50,000 by the government to reintegrate – even those that were in jail at the time.1

The Accord also called for those who had lost their jobs with the government to be reinstated. According to the last PCJSS report, out of the 78 Jumma who were employed by the government during the insurgency and had lost their positions, 64 were reinstated to their former positions.2
