11,000 police personnel to be recruited in Maharashtra
Nagpur, Dec 16. (PTI): Admitting that the Maharashtra Police were "over-burdened" by a shortage of 55,000 personnel, the State Government on Friday said, it has taken remedial steps like the recruitment of 11,000 personnel every year.
The Government will also increase the allocation for security in the budget for 2007-08, Deputy Chief Minister R R Patil, who holds the home portfolio, told the Legislative Council here.
Replying to a resolution tabled last week by the opposition, he said the budgetary allocation for security in the State was 3.7 per cent, against a national average of 5.3 per cent.
