Centre sanctions Rs 26 crore for police modernisation scheme

The federal government said on Sunday that the umbrella scheme for modernising and improving police forces in states and union territories will be extended for another five years.

The news: The umbrella programme of Modernisation of Police Forces (MPF) has been authorised for the period 2021-22 to 2025-26, according to a statement from the ministry of home affairs. All applicable sub-schemes are included in the scheme, which has a total Central financial outlay of Rs. 26,275 crore.

  • Internal security, law and order, police adoption of contemporary technologies, supporting states and UTs with drugs control, and “strengthening the criminal justice system by building a robust forensic set-up in the country” have all been included in the MPF project. For the upgrading of state police forces, the Centre will provide Rs. 4,846 crore.
  • The scheme’s other major aspect is the development of operationally autonomous high-quality forensic science facilities to enable scientific and speedy investigation through resource modernization. Under the central scheme for modernising forensic capacities, the government has sanctioned a budget of 2,080.50 crore.
  • For the Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir, insurgency-affected northeastern states, and left-wing extremism (LWE)-affected areas, an amount of Rs 18,839 crore has been set aside for security-related expenditure. According to the home ministry, with the adoption of the ‘National Policy and Action Plan’ for countering LWE, violent events in LWE-affected areas have decreased dramatically.
  • Six LWE-related programmes with a total Central investment of Rs.8,689 crore have been approved to promote this achievement. To cement the achievements, these programmes include Special Central Assistance (SCA) to Most LWE Affected Districts & Districts of Concern,” it stated.

The government has approved a budget of 350 crore for the formation of India Reserve Battalions and Specialized India Reserve Battalions. With a budget of Rs 50 crore, it has extended the central sector scheme of ‘Assistance to States and Union Territories for Narcotics Control.’
