Tripura Reserves 10% of Policing Positions for Females

The Tripura government in India is implementing a 10% quota to reserve positions for females at all levels of policing.

This is an initiative to increase the current percentage from 4%-10%, with the possibility of a further increase depending on the response. The goal is to combat crime against women and other vulnerable groups. The state has also introduced seven all-women police stations with four more in the works.

The government’s decision is welcomed by Akhil Kumar Shukla, the Tripura Director General of Police, stating he believes it will greatly assist in handling crime involving women.

“From now onwards, 10 per cent posts would be reserved in all types of recruitment in police force for women.” – Ratan Lal Nath, Education and Law Minister
