Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana has undertaken a series of reforms under the guidance of Union home minister Amit Shah. The step has been taken to make law enforcement effective and accountable in the national capital.

Nearly, 500 Delhi Police personnel have been freed from security duties after an audit conducted in consultation with the home ministry. Instructions have been given to each police station to give details of those on active duty with the unit for force rationalization. Reportedly, 79 police station heads have been transferred with the restructuring of special police units like special cell and law and order chiefs.

In the security audit, it was revealed that a few serving and retired officers of Delhi Police had 24X7 personal security officers guarding not only the officers but also their wives and grown-up children. The security to some of these police officers including ex-police commissioners, ex-home secretaries, and others was given without threat assessment. Apart from this, CP Asthana instructed all police units to report the number of personnel on active duty with the intention of doing away with senior police officers carrying their staff with them to new postings.

Meanwhile, Asthana decided to restructure the top-heavy force with more than 14 Special Commissioners and several joint commissioners. Sources claimed that consultations are on with the MHA to post several senior officers out to newly created union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh for on-field experience rather than moving files around.

Furthermore, the special cell of Delhi Police has also been restructured and made more accountable. Instructions have been given to special cells not to conduct any solo operations without the knowledge of immediate superiors.
