35% reservation for Women in police recruitment

Just read an article that Nitish Kumar has announced 35% reservation for women in police recruitments. Happy to read this as it is another step in the right direction of empowering woman in Bihar and improving the status of woman in Bihar. A good step in my view.

43,000 new vacancies will be filled up in the Police department over the next 5 years. That's about 8500 recruitments every year. This would mean that 15,000 women will join the police department in the next five years. Kudos on the right step to empower women.

On another note, Bihar today has got just 69 cops per one lakh people against the national average of 143. A lot still needs to be done. I hope the 43,000 recruitments happen in time and help further improve the law and order situation in Bihar, not only in the large cities but also in the smallest pockets of Bihar.

More details can be found in the NDTV article "35% reservation for women in police recruitment in Bihar:Nitish Kumar"
