“Our area is diverse, having various commercial establishments, pubs, bars, many restaurants, hotels and Oyo, housing societies, slums, Labour camps, hostels, bungalows, and old and new developments. Therefore, the issues are also different,” representatives said.


In reply to this, Inspector Pandhre assured he will personally look into all this, and the DB team will be roped in whenever needed. He expressed his gratitude towards citizens for coming together and organising such a dialogue. He focused on increasing patrolling and curbing the nuisance and hooliganism. Strict action will be taken on the commercial establishments that cause a nuisance to residents.

He also said that the Shantata Committee, which includes eminent and socially active citizens, will be restructured, acting as a thread between residents and police.


He also focused on issuing Identity cards and registering senior citizens with the police station for better communication and help.

Naka Bandi will be done from time to time. Monthly review meetings with residents will be organised.


He also mentioned that along with the police, the excise department plays an important role in keeping a strict watch on the Bars and Wine shops; they also need to be roped in. Therefore, a joint meeting of the Police, Excise dept, and PMC officials will be organised soon.
