After Lucknow & Noida, Police Commissionerate System to be introduced in Kanpur & Varanasi

Equipping the new commissioners with executive magisterial powers, this system will facilitate improved and efficient policing.

After repeated high-level deliberations in the Uttar Pradesh cabinet, the state government announced on Thursday that Police Commissionerate System will now be introduced in Kanpur and Varanasi. This decision was taken after the commissionerate system in Lucknow and Noida successfully completed one year after their implementation. Given that the two cities reported a significant improvement in law and order conditions, Kanpur and Varanasi also expect a list of benefits through this project.

A step towards bettering law and order conditions in the state

With the latest decision of the state government, four cities in the state will now have police commissioners. As per the records for the last year, Lucknow and Noida marked a notable decrease in all kinds of crimes after this comprehensive measure was launched. Statistics indicate that murder rates diminished by half compared to the preceding year while robbery cases have gone down to almost 25% of the initial number. Additionally, incidents of vehicle theft and crimes against women have also reduced.

Observing these results, the state government was prompted to expand the implementation for the betterment of law and order in different parts of the state. Thereby, a framework for setting up the commissionerate system in Kanpur and Varanasi was worked upon. It can be anticipated that similar outcomes shall be seen in these cities as well.

State appoints first police commissioners for Kanpur and Varanasi

Soon after the declaration of the new establishments in the two districts, the state authorities also announced the names of the first police commissioners. While Aseem Arun will take charge in Kanpur, Satish Ganesh shall be the first police commissioner of Varanasi. Prior to this, Aseem Arun was leading the 'Dial 112' service while Satish Ganesh was designated as IG Agra. Under the new systems, Varanasi(District) will have 18 police stations under its jurisdiction while Varanasi (Rural) will have 10 stations. In addition to this, Kanpur(District) will have 34 stations while there will be 11 spots in Kanpur(Outer).

The new system will augment the powers of the police department and equip the new commissioners with additional magisterial functions as defined in Section 58 and Chapter 8 of the Code of Criminal Procedure and Chapter 10 (maintaining public order and peace). This will facilitate improved and efficient policing.
