400 police stations to be built in naxal affected states

400 police stations to be built in naxal affected states

To improve the security condition in naxal-affected states, the Centre has decided to build 400 police stations in 10 states. 

Naxal affected states always face security issues and to improve this condition, the government has given approval to build 400 police stations in these areas.



The information was received from an RTI query which also disclosed that the police stations will be built in 10 states including Andhra Pradesh, Chhasttisgarh, Bihar, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.

Each police station will be allocated Rs. 2 crore. The cost of construction will be borne jointly by the state and centre.

80 percent of the total cost will be borne by the centre and remaining 20 percent by state. In 2012-13, Rs 150 crore were allocated to these states, Rs 119.65 crore in 2013-14 and Rs 99 crore in the year 2014-15.

On May 9, 250 villagers were seized by Maoist rebels in Sukma district of Chhattisgarh on the eve of Narendra Modi’s visit to neighbouring Dantewada. With frequent incidents of abductions by naxalites, this step will benefit villagers and communities who have been suffering from this threat on a regular basis.
