police1New year seems to have come with bad news for the police personnel in Navi Mumbai who are loosing hopes of getting houses in the city. Compared to the number of police in Navi Mumbai, the number of staff quarters is quite less. Sudhir Sharma met the police chief to know what lies ahead for his homeless officers. Government’s apathy towards constructing police staff quarters in Navi Mumbai, has become a matter of concern. More than 60% of police staff is deprived of houses in Navi Mumbai. Therefore, they are forced to live in rented houses. Even Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner Ramrao Wagh does not deny these facts. It must be noted that since many years Government has been making announcements about constructing quarters for the police staff but has never brought the plans into action. According to the Commissioner, a plot is available at Panvel for this purpose. Also the dilapidated buildings at Belapur and other places can be redeveloped. But Government’s negligence about the issue is making the problem more chronic. Figures say that the satellite city has 2518 police staff and only 865 houses are available for them. CP Wagh accepted that 60% of the police staff are deprived of houses. The commissioner is hopeful that Government will do something for the homes of the police personnel sooner than later.
