*As on 01.01.2006                     NR – Data not received

            ** All India total of actual excludes the States of Andhra Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu & Pondicherry.

            The  sanctioned   and actual strength of Central Police Force (including Railway Protection Force) as on 1.1.2007 is 7,98,530 and 7,27,509, respectively.

            As ‘Police’  and ‘Law & Order’  are State subjects as per the vII schedule to the Constitution of India, the States are competent  to raise police force as per their law & order, internal security and allied requirements.  However, the Central Government has been supplementing the efforts of State Governments in modernizing  their police forces in terms  of infrastructure, to meet challenges to Internal Security, effectively and to reduce their dependence on Central Police Forces.

This information was given by  the Minister of State   in the Ministry of Home Affairs, Shri Mullappally Ramachandran,   in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today
