The country's first Central Police University will be set up near Yamuna Expressway in Greater Noida. A ministry brochure said the Centre had given in-principle approval for the University and a 100-acre plot has been identified in Sector Techzone for it.
“The allotment letter for the national police university was issued on September 13 after all formalities were completed. We have already received about Rs 37 crore, 10% of the payment for the land, and another 20% is expected within a week. Once we get 30% of the cost of land, we will hand over its possession,” said Narendra Bhooshan, CEO of GNIDA.
The official said GNIDA would provide all necessary support for the university.
“It is a matter of pride that a national police university is being set up in our city. It is a much-needed infrastructure that will help improve the law and order situation of the country and intensify the training for cops,” Bhooshan added.
