GUWAHATI, July 25 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today approved the proposal from the Home Department for creation of 400 posts of technical advisers in the Assam Police on contractual basis with a view to reducing the pendency of cases in all police stations to 50 per cent within a year. Rs 6.4 crore has been proposed in the coming budget for the purpose.
The technical advisers to be mostly inducted from retired inspectors and sub-inspectors of police would temporarily fill up the 400 posts of inspectors and SIs presently lying vacant in the police stations.
The technical advisers would also be inducted from the financial sector to deal with banking/non-banking frauds as well as from the judicial sector to tackle cyber crimes. The technical advisers would aid, assist and advise the SPs in respect of disposal of pending cases and also during investigation, said an official press release here.
The technical advisers would get a fixed salary of Rs 20,000 per month.
Induction of technical advisers is a part of the three-pronged Mission Mode of Assam Police to improve interface with the public.
