Modernisation of police scheme needs speedy implementation
9/23/2018 10:41:18 PM
Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Sept 23: The increase in attacks by militants on Jammu and Kashmir police has put into focus the speedy implementation of 'Modernization of Police Forces' scheme in the state.
There has been an increase in attacks by militants which shows their sheer desperation as police have been at the forefront along with other security forces in dealing with militants. At the same time, there has been an inadequate infrastructure for the police forces.
The 'Economic Survey' report had said that JK Police Personnel are living in a "bad condition".
Earlier, the Comptroller and Auditor General of India had also criticized J&K government for providing "poor infrastructure and lack of basic facilities for the state police force that needs it the most in the country".
To overcome the inadequate infrastructure, the government has started 'Modernization of Police Forces' scheme in the state.
The objective of the scheme is to gradually reduce the dependence on the Army and the central armed police forces to control "internal security, law and order situations" by equipping the state police forces adequately and strengthening their training infrastructure.
The scheme has been started for providing cops with secure police stations, training centers, police housing (residential), equipping the police stations with the required mobility, modern weaponry, communication equipment and forensic set-up.
However, an official of police department said that that implementation of the scheme was not going at fast pace. "There has to be speedy implementation of the scheme so that police could deal with militants effectively," the police official said. The official said that police needs all required infrastructure to deal with the crimes. "JK police is the only forces in the country which has to deal with crimes and simultaneously with militants. They need a special attention," the official said.
Earlier this year, the government also constituted a high level committee for speedy implementation of the 'Modernization of Police Forces' scheme in the state.
Chief Secretary is heading the committee while Administrative Secretary Planning and Development and Monitoring department, Administrative Secretary Home department, Director General of Police, J&K and Administrative Secretary Finance department as its members for its proper monitoring. "The commitee has to ensure that scheme is implemented effectively," the official said.
The official said that Jammu and Kashmir government has been strengthening the number of its police personnel to reduce the dependency on the central forces.
As per the official figures of the Home Department, around 16,000 recruitments have been done for the last eight years. Between January 2016 and 2017, around 6000 recruitments have been made in the JK police. The strength of police personnel in the state has reached nearly 90,000.
A senior police official said the state remains dependent on central police forces and the army even when there is a minor law and order problem in the state. "The state has inadequate police personnel of its own. Government has initiated the process to make recruitment in the J&K police at a large scale and strengthening its training infrastructure to reduce the dependence on central forces," the police official said.
The Union Home Ministry last year approved recruitment of additional 10,000 special police officers (SPOs) in the state police force.
Home Minister, Rajnath Singh, in his last year visit to Kashmir had reiterated that Government of India (GoI) was creating ample job opportunities for youth in Kashmir, while emphasizing that the special police recruitment drives will be initiated in the valley.
