The Centre has okayed the Thirty Three Per cent quota for the female candidates in Police Department in Delhi and Union Territories. This decision has been welcomed by every body. It was the much awaited decision as the women empowerment is actually incomplete without including the women in the Security Forces.
This decision can be seen as the response of increasing crime against women such as rapes and other cases of molestation. This decision will provide extra strength and confidence to this much deprived entity which claims to be half of the total population.
It may be expected that this step will help in curbing the crimes against them a lot.
Impact of 33% Reservation –
This reservation will be proved boon in many ways. As per the quota the women will get the Constable and Sub Inspector rank jobs. Even there shall be the provision of reservation for the SC, ST and other category female candidates.
The first impact will be that the women will come out in large nos to join the Police Force which was not considered good for the female candidates. Second the females issues which were taken insensitively by their male counterparts shall be taken in a responsible way by the Women Cops.
This step will improve the face of the Police Force which is notorious for its rude behavior. So in a way we can say that this a great step in the right direction. We hope this decision will improve the status of the takers of law and order as well as provide security to the women of the society.
