The Panvel Post

Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai

Confused by Name and jurisdictional area, New Panvel Police station (Panvel Taluka police station) suffers from low strength and disconnection from its people.

Panvel talukaCalled as new Panvel police station, but have no relation with New Panvel or its people, a police station in Panvel is staying far away from its people. Name of the Taluka police station in Panvel itself is confusing with its Jurisdiction area. Started in 1985 Panvel Taluka police station controls rural areas and villages in Panvel Taluka. With 28 years of working, Taluka police station has played an important role in maintaining peace in Villages. In 2006 the police station came under Navi Mumbai police. But currently the police station is suffering from different problems and struggling to reach its jurisdiction area.

82 villages in Panvel Taluka come under the jurisdiction of New Panvel Police station, but have the strength of only 70 staffs including 10 officers. Police station cannot have even one police man for each villages. The station found it’s very hard to reach every problem of villages or Panvel rural limits. Disconnection from the jurisdiction area is another problem faced by villagers. A villager of Vavanje, a village in Panvel Taluka but far away from Panvel city, has to travel more than fifty kilometer to reach his police station. Number of police chowky is very less in villages and thus increases the problem. Dwellers of the villagers are often financially backward and living by agricultural works or in small industries near to them.

Police never chose to visit the area, due to the distance. Though controlling the rural area, Police station is situated in municipal limits and far away from villages. Villagers never chose to travel this distance to register complaints. Service and presence of police in the villages are very poor due to less strength of staff and unusual distance. Apta, a village in Panvel Taluka near to Rasayani , affected largely as villagers have travel more than 25 kms, when there is Rasayani Police station near to the village. New Panvel police station often found deserted not due to the absence of complaints, but because of difficulties to complain.

Sunil Bajare, senior inspector of New Panvel police, said “we have very less strength of staff and we are looking after 82 villages which is a hectic job. we are not able to reach all the villages and their problems. Distance between the police station and villages are emerging as a major problem. we are trying to reach those villages by allowing policemen go there”.
