Govt announces India’s Top 10 Police Stations for 2020
The Top 10 Police Stations in the country for 2020 are: –
|2||Tamil Nadu||Salem City||AWPS-Suramangalam|
|4||Chhattisgarh||Surajpur||Jhilmili (Bhaiya Thana)|
|6||Andaman & Nicobar Islands||North & Middle Andaman||Kalighat|
|9||Dadra & Nagar Haveli||Dadra & Nagar Haveli||Khanvel|
|10||Telangana||Karimnagar||Jammikunta Town PS|
This is in accordance with the directions of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing the Directors General of Police during the 2015 Conference in Kutch, Gujarat. The Prime Minister had directed that parameters should be laid down for grading police stations and assessing their performance based on feedback.
This year’s survey for best police stations was conducted under challenging circumstances by the Ministry of Home Affairs. It was difficult to access police stations located in remote areas during the Corona pandemic due to various restrictions on movement. Consequently, the survey was conducted in accordance with the guidelines of the Government.
The Union Minister for Home Affairs, Amit Shah has said that a vast majority of police stations short-listed from the thousands of police stations in the country are police stations located in small towns and rural areas. This is also true for those police stations which have been ranked among the top 10. This indicates that while availability of resources is important, more important is the dedication and sincerity of our police personnel to prevent and control crime and serve the nation.
