After that, one day multi-purpose camps would be held every month at Tehsil level where officers would listen to and redress complaints on the spot," he said.

"Annually, Rs 1 Crore in all will be allocated to police stations for resources just to conduct proper investigation. Beat system, dialogues between the police and community groups will also be further made stronger.

In order to ease investigation, 35,000 police personnel working in the field would be provided CUG mobile phone facility and other resources so that their functioning regarding investigation is not affected," he said.
