Mumbai Police: Improved Sanitation Facilities for Women’s Division

On Wednesday, March 8, Mumbai's Nagpada and Byculla Police Stations received improved sanitation facilities through Tata Capital in partnership with Habitat for Humanity India. The initiative's aim is to provide women police officers access to enhanced sanitation infrastructure. Sanjay Pandey, Mumbai Police Commissioner presided over the handover ceremony.

The refurbished sanitation facility at the Nagpada police station includes two restrooms that will benefit around 40 women constables and 5 officers. The restroom at Byculla police station, on the other hand, is expected to benefit around 50 women constables.

With a view to enabling access to an improved sanitation infrastructure for the women in uniform, the new facilities will include a separate toilet and bathroom, hand wash area and bunk beds for resting. The upgraded amenities also include storage space.

“Access to better toilet facilities will ensure greater dignity for women officers in the force and help create a better work environment for them,” said Sanjay Pandey, Mumbai Police Commissioner.

“Mumbai Police are the backbone of this city. Women police officers have always been at the frontline in upholding law and order, especially during the pandemic to mitigate COVID-19 related risks. Given the tough conditions in which they work, we need to be sensitive to their sanitation requirements. By upgrading the toilet facilities for women police officers at Nagpada and Byculla police stations, we aim to resolve their sanitation problems and help improve their work environment,” stated Dr Rajan Samuel, Managing Director, Habitat for Humanity India.

Pandey was joined by other eminent dignitaries that included Yamini Jadhav, Member of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly; Amin Patel, Member of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly; Vishwas Nangre Patil, Joint Commissioner of Police, Law and Order; Dr Dnyaneshwar Chavan, Additional Commissioner of Police; Sarosh K Amaria, Managing Director - Tata Capital Financial Services Ltd; Dr Rajan Samuel, Managing Director of Habitat for Humanity India and singer Vaishali Samant.
