The DGP told ANI, "We have implemented eight hours shift for all the women police personnel in the state. It has been reduced from 12-hour shift."

Thanking Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and state Home Minister Dilip Walse-Patil, NCP leader and Baramati MP Supriya Sule tweeted, "The Maharashtra government has decided to reduce the working hours of women police officers from 12 hours to eight hours a day. This is a really good initiative by the state government as this will help to have better coordination between family and the duties of women officers."
