For police stations in Navi Mumbai awaiting new buildings, the wait is almost over. Development plans have been approved for the police station buildings where new structures had been proposed. Construction work of some of the police stations has also begun.
As many as four new police stations had also been approved for Navi Mumbai. The new police stations — Turbhe MIDC, Rabale MIDC, Khandeshwar and Kamothe — were sanctioned to cater to the growing population of the city.
Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner Ahmad Javed said the plans for the police stations awaiting new buildings were approved by the authorities concerned. "Among the police stations which were to have new buildings, we have approved plans for the Kharghar, NRI Coastal, Kamothe, Nhava Sheva and Turbhe police stations. Construction work has started at the Kharghar and Kamothe police stations. The work is on and will be completed in the next few months," said Javed.
Javed revealed that the City and Industrial Development Corporation of Maharashtra Limited (CIDCO) had prepared the plans for three of the police stations which are awaiting their new structures.
"CIDCO has prepared the plans for three police stations, while the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) authorities have prepared the plans for the Nhava Sheva police station, and the Police Housing Corporation have prepared the plans for the new Turbhe police station," said Javed.
The new Turbhe police station will be located close to the Palm Beach Road near Sanpada. The police had acquired land for the project and had bifurcated the existing Turbhe police station into the Turbhe MIDC and Turbhe police stations.
"The Turbhe police station was bifurcated to ensure that even the MIDC belt would have enough police presence, and so that residents of Sanpada would not have to come to Turbhe to approach the police. The new police station, although called Turbhe police station, will cater mostly to Sanpada residents," said Javed.
