Mumbai: The Maharashtra Minority Development Department has provided training to 7,000 students from the minority community over the past two years, to prepare them for police recruitment.

Minority Affairs minister Naseem Khan has stated this in a press release.

"To help them prepare for the police recruitment drive undertaken by the Home Department, the Minority Development Department would further give them a month's training," the statement said.

"According to the Sachar Commission report, there is a low representation from the minority communities in the police department. Therefore, for the welfare of minorities, the Prime Minister has laid down 15 point programme," it added.

The statement further says that the 500 candidates, who had successfully completed their training, have been selected for the police force.

The minister also urged that those candidates, who want to apply for the police posts, can register themselves on the website www.mahapoliceonline.org.
