HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao would set in motion allotment of house-sites for police personnel in the next 20 days, a press release from the DGP’s office said here on Monday.
Director-general of police Anurag Sharma on Monday held a meeting with heads of all district units of the state police. He has asked them to identify government lands to in another three days. The DGP also asked them to identify vacant government lands in district headquarters and sub-divisional centres to provide housing for police working over there.
Due to shortage of lands, he is of the view that building apartments is the only option for providing housing to police personnel. Even if sufficient lands were not available at one place, they could identify lands at multiple locations to meet the requirement, Sharma said.
Additional DGP Sudeep Lakhtakia asked all the units of police wings to organise themselves into a cooperative society and frame by-laws after holding meaningful deliberations. According to him, this is necessary to avoid any court cases between parties in the future.
He said that priority would be given to those who do not own land. He too asked them to find out the details of land available and the number of staff who require the same.
It is also learnt that there is a proposal to provide all IPS officers with Toyota Fortuner SUVs and all police inspectors with Toyota Innova cars.
