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.
It also provides for setting up The Police Complaints Authority, which shall inquire into allegations of 'serious misconduct' (rape, death and grievous hurt in police custody) against police personnel in supervisory ranks, on a complaint from a victim in the form of a sworn affidavit.
