One Nation, One Uniform

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his virtual address to the Chintan Shivir of state home ministers on 28 October 2022, suggested the idea of “One Nation, One Uniform" for police to have uniformity among various forces.

The two day (27&28 October) Chintan Shivir at Surajkund, Haryana, chaired by the Union Home Minister Amit Shah was attended by chief ministers of eight states and home ministers and deputy chief ministers of 16 states. Home Secretaries and Director General of Police (DGPs) of the States, Director Generals of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) and Central Police Organisations (CPOs) also attended the Shivir.  

Speaking on the occasion the Prime Minister said he thinks that the identity of the police across the country could be identical.

He also urged the state governments to review old laws and amend them to the current context as he batted for coordinated action by all the agencies to meet the emerging challenges of law and order and security.

Police a state subject 

Law and Order, Police is a state subject in India and the central government has no power on the matter. It is for the state government to decide the uniform of the state police and the uniform of the policies varies across the states in the countries.
