Chennai: A Bill seeking to replace the ordinance on police reforms as part of its efforts to comply with Supreme Court directives was passed by the Tamil Nadu Assembly yesterday.





The House adopted the Tamil Nadu Police (Reforms) Act 2013 rejecting opposition amendments after Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, who holds the Home portfolio, opposed them and clarified on the points raised.

The Bill has provisions included determining the tenure of the DGP, allowing a two-year tenure for a officer in-charge of a police station, police district or Commissionerate, establishing a State Security Commission and a Police Complaints Authority.
