Twin City Police Commissioner YB Khurania has asked officials of Infocity police station to work diligently to ensure it meets all the criteria needed for the certification.

Manoj Kumar Samant, inspector in-charge of the police station said there is need to bring down the number of pending cases to 50 to receive the ISO 9001 certification.

“We are working hard to become the second police station in the state and the first under the commissionerate police to accomplish this prestigious benchmark,” said Samant.
