Creation of a specific Police Sector Skill Development Council (PSSDC) under the aegis of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and channelising funds for training of police personnel through the same would go a long way in creating the basic institutional framework for making sure that states give adequate attention to training of the constabulary. The involvement of private sector, which has been involved in imparting soft skills, under public private partnership model would be a prudent way ahead.
