Cabinet approves Rs 492 cr for police training academy
New Delhi: To bring uniformity in training state police officials, the Centre on Friday approved setting up of a central academy in Bhopal at a cost of Rs 492 crore.
"The Union Cabinet today has given its ex-post facto approval for creation of the Central Academy for Police Training (CAPT) at Bhopal and has approved the creation of one post of Director, CAPT in the rank of Inspector General of Police," an official statement said.
A total outlay of Rs 492 crore has been provided under the 12th Plan for the CAPT, it said.
The proposed academy will also train trainers for police officials directly recruited by the states through their public service commission.
"Taking into account the dearth of training facilities for the Deputy Superintendents of Police, directly recruited by the State Governments and inadequate facilities for training of trainers, the academy at Bhopal, i.E. CAPT, headed by a Director, in the rank of IGP, has been approved," the statement said.
The Madhya Pradesh government has identified about 400 acres of land in Bhopal for setting up the academy.
