Chandigarh, May 16
In a bid to improve policing and induce vim in the officers, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma has decided to go in for professional recording of Body Mass Index (BMI) of all Assam Police personnel, including IPS and APS officers.
The government plans to give three-month time to all Assam Police personnel and then start BMI assessment in next fifteen days. Those who are obese (BMI 30+) category would be offered another three-month time to reduce weight (till November End).
Post that VRS option will be considered for the personnel if they still surpass the permissible parameters, except for those dealing with medical issues like thyroidism.
The information in this regard has been shared by Assam DGP, GP Singh.
