The Delhi Police have received a new fleet of 250 vehicles to increase its motor vehicle fleet.
Lt. Governor Shri VK Saxena flagged off 250 newly procured vehicles of Delhi Police that will add significantly to the efficiency and mobility of city’s police force in wake of the ever-increasing operational requirements.
The vehicles, including 100 Ertiga and 150 Bolero, were flagged off from Baansera, a lush green asset created on the Yamuna Bank near Sarai Kale Khan.
The Ministry of Home Affairs had approved the procurement of 850 Light Motor Vehicles as ‘fresh authorization’ for Delhi Police to supplement its existing motor vehicle fleet.
The officials said that the fleet of 250 vehicles introduced is the first tranche of the 850 vehicles that comprises 300 Maruti Ertiga, 200 Mahindra Bolero, 100 Mahindra Scorpio and 250 Toyota Innova. The remaining vehicles will be added gradually to the fleet.
These vehicles, to be deployed strategically across the national capital, will ensure swifter mobility of the police besides improving the visibility and enhancing the efficiency of the Delhi Police.
