The Additional IGP has proposed that each police station should have a notice board with a complaint section where people can go and register their complaints against the police. This can also be done by calling on the police helpline, Madadgar-15.

Further, the IGP will pay ‘surprise visits’ to police stations to see if the police are complying by rules.
