In the ‘Anugrah cell’ cops could discuss all their family, personal or departmental issues apart from transfer, promotion and appointment related issues. 

Addressing the first meeting of the ‘monitoring cell’, DGP Awasthi asked officers to form the cell at district as well as range level where the lower police staff would personally meet the unit heads.
