Present, former DGPs welcome police commissionerate system in Lko, Noida

Tuesday, 14 January 2020 | PNS | Lucknow

Uttar Pradesh’s Director General of Police OP Singh as well as many of his predecessors on Monday hailed the state cabinet decision to implement police commissionerate system in Lucknow and Noida.

“Till now police have to depend on the district administration for its work. The way in which urbanisation has increased and scenario has changed, the need was felt for quick decision,” DGP OP Singh told reporters soon after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced the decision to introduce police commissionerate system in Lucknow and Noida here on Monday morning.

“That’s why we felt that commissionerate system is needed. It will help in smart and sensitive policing,” the DGP said, adding that it would also be helpful in totally integrated policing.

“It is evident that the police will now have the rights of a magistrate,” commented former DGP Brijlal while thanking Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for the bold decision.

He said a myth had been broken that the police commissionerate system could never be implemented in Uttar Pradesh.

He said this system was already in force in 71 metro cities of the country.

The former DGP congratulated Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on behalf of  the people of the state, bureaucracy, police officers for this decision.

He said this decision reflected the strong will of the chief minister, adding that in this new system, the police had got direct powers for ensuring law and order and controlling crimes. “It (police) will be able to provide relief to the people by taking quick decisions. The law and order of Uttar Pradesh is already very good, it will improve further and the people of the state will benefit from it,” he added..

Former DGP AK Jain praised the Yogi government for implementing the police  commissionerate system. He said that “we are moving towards smart policing and this is a good move for a change in policing beyond the scope of the  Police Act, 1861,”

“Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has taken a strong  political step. Over the decades, many governments have taken steps in this  direction but had pulled back because of lobbying. This system will not  only improve law and order but will also prevent crime against women, he  added.

Former DGP Vikram Singh said that the implementation of the police commissionerate system in Lucknow and Noida was no less than a revolutionary step.

Congratulating Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath  for this, the former DGP said that the entire state and police department was very grateful to  Yogiji for taking this initiative.

He said that after Independence, lots  of efforts were made towards implementing the system. He said the Dharmveer  Commission strongly recommended this in 1977 but it could not be done.

“This  system is already running successfully in 71 districts in 15 states across  the country but it had not been implemented in Uttar Pradesh for some  reasons. The present government has implemented it with its strong will,” he  said.

Former DG KL Gupta called this decision a bold step of the state  government.

He thanked Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and said that this  issue was pending since 1977 and had been implemented by the UP government today.
