Police” is a State subject falling in State List in the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution of India. It is primarily the responsibility of the State Governments to fill up the vacancies in the police force in their respective States. The Centre also issues advisories from time to time to the States for filling up these vacancies in the States and to bring in the requisite reforms in the police administration to meet the lawful expectations of the people. The Centre also maintains Central Armed Police Forces like BSF, CISF, CRPF, ITBP. However, they are deployed to assist the State Governments and UTs in maintaining public order on their request. The debate on Police reforms has been a long-standing one, and has spanned over more than four decades. Over these years, several commissions have been set up at the highest levels of Government and they have submitted their reports and recommendations.
