The allocation for the police department also saw a rise of 3.5 per cent to Rs 1,32,345 crore from the last year’s allocation of Rs 1.27 lakh crore.

Among the union territories, Delhi saw the lowest allocation, with status quo being maintained in Delhi’s share at Rs 1,168 crore, since the same amount was given in 2023-24.
