The State’s director general of police, Ashok Kumar has directed that police personnel posted in the nine mountainous districts be granted weekly leave from the new year. He informed that in order to boost the morale and enhance work efficiency of the police personnel, in the first phase the head constables and constables posted in all police stations, posts and police lines will be granted weekly off from January 1, 2021 onward. This step is being taken on an experimental basis in the nine mountainous districts of Pauri, Tehri, Uttarkashi, Chamoli, Rudraprayag, Almora, Pithoragarh, Bageshwar and Champawat.

He also stressed on the need for focusing on improving the fire response time and training of fire service personnel.
