Minister of State for Home Affairs Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary said in a written reply in the Lok Sabha that a revised Model Police Bill, 2015 has been prepared and placed in public domain for comments. He added that the revised bill is based on comprehensive modifications of the 2006 Model Police Act.
He pointed out that “Public Order” and “Police” are “State subjects” as per entry 2 of the list II of the VII schedule of the constitution of India. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the State Governments/UTs administration to implement the various police reforms measures. The Centre has persuaded the States from time to time to bring the requisite reforms in the Police Administration.
