Agartala: Tripura’s Chief Minister Manik Saha has confirmed his government’s commitment to introducing a one-third (33%) reservation for women in all forthcoming police recruitment initiatives, including the specialized force Tripura State Rifles (TSR), as reported by PTI. Following his attendance at the passing-out parade of the newly established 14th and 15th battalions of TSR at the KTDS Police Training Academy in West Tripura district, the CM stated, “In the current recruitment for the new battalions, 10 percent women’s reservation was implemented as the 33 percent mandatory rule was introduced after the commencement of this recruitment drive.” He further added, “However, in all future government recruitment endeavors, including TSR, we will ensure a 33 percent reservation for women.”
Earlier this year, the state government mandated a 33 percent reservation for women in all government recruitment processes.
Following the addition of these new battalions, the Tripura State Rifles (TSR), renowned as one of the nation’s premier counter-insurgency forces, now boasts a total of 15 battalions.
“The TSR jawans who joined the passing out parade have undergone rigorous training with Border Security Force (BSF) personnel. The TSR is known for uprooting insurgency from Tripura,” he said.
Claiming that the law and order situation in Tripura is “very good”, Saha said the state came “fifth from the bottom” on the crime graph of the National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB).
“Union Home Minister Amit Shah has been in touch with me over the performance of the state police as well as the TSR and wanted to know if they have any issue or problem. I had a word with the police officers to know how the government could create more facilities for the police,” he said.
DGP Amitabh Ranjan and other senior officials also witnessed the colourful passing-out parade of the newly recruited TSR jawans.
