History of M.P. Police Telecommunication

Police Radio (Wireless) unit came into existence in the year 1945-46. To begin with, Constables and Head Constables from DEF/SAF well versed in English were appointed to this unit. After the selection, Wireless Training used to be imparted to them to make them useful members of the Radio units.

On 1st November 1956, 16 district of Central Province, Madhya Bharat, Vindhya State and Bhopal State were merged to constitute the State of Madhya Pradesh. To provide communication facility back up  to the  Police force, one Radio unit headed by Shri N.C Ray, Senior Superintend of Police (Radio)was established. 58 Radio Stations were established with the disposal sets of Indian Army. In the year 1972, Government of India permitted to open new Radio Stations under Police Modernization Scheme and provided some equipments for Anti Dacoity Operations. State Government also  allotted some budget to purchase equipments. Additional Staff was sanctioned under Modernization Scheme of Government of India and under  Anti Dacoity Operations Scheme of  the State Government. For the maintenance of equipments, certain technical personnel were selected through an aptitude test of Constabulary having science education back ground,  these were appointed as Radio Technicians.

Keeping in view the need of Communication System for Anti Decoity operation and for strengthening of State communication system, trained Wireless Constables were posted at Police Stations. During  1980’s VHF Communication System was established upto thana level . By that  time disposal Army sets BC-191 and Valve type sets [mainly BC-191 , BC-375, Safi- 62 , HM -30 , MF-753 , GH- 650 ,GM-750 , LVS , GH-301 , Man Pack  LVB -213 , LVM -208 , GV -650  etc.] were in operation Teleprinters, Automation Massaging Switching System (AMSS), Solid State Radio Equipment, VHF lower band sets and Repeaters equipped with modern feature, 100 watt HF wireless sets, Electronic Tele-Printer (ETP) and exchange were also used till 1990’s. Cipher coding / decoding system, was in practic for maintaining secrecy of the communication to make communication reliable. In big cities, APCO phase I (P-25) based Radio Trunking Communication System was setup in 2004 at Ujjain, Bhopal, Indore and Jabalpur. POLNET Stations were set up in 38 districts in 2006 for inter distric and inter state messaging IDT, SMF battery Advanced technological devices like UAV (Unmanned aerial vehicle), PDA (personal digital assistant), VMS (variable messaging system) were put into service in 2014-16 to provide support to police force  for crowd management, traffic control, investigation etc. Tetra Based Communication Radio Trunking System has been established in 2016 in Ujjain. Analog HF sets are being replaced with digital HF since 2014. During this period old morsecode based communication has also been abandoned in view of availablility of latest and more reliable technology. In 2016 Radio Trunking System was established in Gwalior city after redeploying the old APCO phase-I system of Ujjain.

Organization of Telecommunication Branch

The Police Telecommunication Headquaters is situated at Bhopal; Additional Director General of Police is the head of the Police Telecommunication Branch. To assist the ADGP (Telecom) post of  IGP (Telecom) and SSP(Radio) are sanctioned at State Police Telecommunication Head Quarters.

After Re-organization in 1990, six Telecommunication zonals office at Indore, Bhopal, Gwalior, Jabalpur Raipur and Bilaspur were constituted each headed by SP (Radio) rank officer.  Each zone is further divided in to Telecommunication Ranges. Jabalpur Zone has five Ranges, DSP (Radio) were posted at Range level. After formation a Chhattishgarh, out of state of Madhya Pradesh, Bilaspur and Raipur Telecom Zones got merged into Chhattishgarh. In 2015,  Two more Radio Zones at Rewa and Ujjain, were created.

At each Districts, an Inspector rank officer has been made as Radio in-charge officer, after reconstitution and redeployment of Radio Staff by Government Order of 2017.

  By 1990 reconstitution of Radio cadre, three sub cadres of Operators, Technicians and Ciphers were created according to the need of the period. Where as some staff used to be directly recruited as Assistant Sub Inspector or Head Constables as technicians, most of the recruitment was at the level of Sub Inspector and Constables. Certain Constables were also trained as technical staff and taken as Head Constable Technicians. The staff directly recruited as Constables (Radio) usually worked as operators. Out of these operator Constables (Radio) and Head Constables (Radio), some staff used to be screened and given cipher training and were promoted and posted as Assistant Sub Inspector (cipher) directly. At Sub Inspector level 50% of staff was directly recruited and assigned as technical stream, where as promoted Sub Inspectors could be of either Technician, Operator, Cipher trade.

In view of revolutionary change in Information & Communication Technology (ICT) between 2005 -2015, Radio cadre has-been reconstituted & reorganized by Government Order in 2017. Now all the recruit Constables (Radio) are to undergo technical as well as operators basic course, trained all Head Constable (Radio) operators have to mandatorily undergo cipher training as part of pre-promotion course from Head Constable to Assistant Sub Inspector. At the level of Head Constable and above, all sub cadres/ streams / trades of operator, technicians and ciphers have been amalgamated & every Head Constable (Radio) is to perform technician’s job as well as that of operator and coding / decoding of cypher messages. Specialized training is being given to staff having higher qualification (Like B.E., B.Tech, BCA, MCA, etc) in the field of computer networking, hardware maintenance and software maintenance. Similarly, to provide equal opportunity of promotion to technical trade constables like Fitter, Welder, Carpenter and non-technical trade Constables like cook, barber, sweeper, G.D. Constables etc. all the posts of Head Constables (Radio) have been merged and made available for promotion equally on the basis of seniority to all Constables (radio), Constable (G.D.) & Constable (Radio) (T. M.) on the basis of seniority from the date of appointment.   

All inter districts Radio Communication has been shifted to departmental e-mail, NIC mail and digital HF. Technology has brought POLNET largely into disuse due to its obsolesce.

 Police Telecom Organization has a training centre at Indore, Police Radio Training School. Here basic training course for Constable (Radio) & Sub Inspector(Radio) is conducted along with pre-promotion course for all the ranks of radio cadre, in- service  course ,(Grade -2) and other specially training on CCTV, Dial 100 etc. The training school is headed by Director PRTS of (ADG or IG Rank) with assistance of Superintendent of Police PRTS & 4 DSP (Radio) .
