Most policewomen doing clerical jobs in PHQ, range, district offices

BHOPAL : Home Minister Babulal Gaur, on Tuesday, asked police officers to post women personnel in their home districts and in field rather than forcing them to do clerical jobs in offices. Guar issued the instructions to DGP Nandan Dubey in view of the huge number of female police personnel doing clerical jobs in the police headquarters and in offices at district and range levels.

It is difficult for them to get low-cost rented accommodation women in cities outside their home town. They face various problems. Now, the instructions have been issued to post them in home districts,” Gaur said in the meeting with senior police officers.

The women personnel will be posted in field and they will be asked to do patrolling in day time. This would increase strength in field.  “I have also asked police officers to maintain patrolling and police jawans should be seen at public spots and squares,” he said.

After 30 per cent female quota implemented in government jobs, police force has got female personnel in considerable strength. They however, are only doing clerical job in police stations, police offices and in ranges. This has reduced the   police strength in field.

Better traffic management to check jams

BHOPAL: Home minister Babulal Gaur directed the officials to ensure traffic management in such a way that there was no traffic jam at the city squares. He said the public announcement system for improvement in traffic arrangement was good and effective and its feedback was good. He said this system should also be implemented in Indore.

Gaur said the municipal corporation needed to make arrangement for traffic warden beside police force for the proper running of buses in BRTS corridor. He said cooperation from city mohalla committees and Nagar Raksha Samitis could also be taken in this. Trucks should be made to park in the ground near Kokta Transport Nagar and it should be ensured that there is backlight in tractor-trolleys.
