What is ‘One Nation, One Uniform’?

While addressing the Chintan Shivir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi pitched the idea of ‘one nation, one police uniform’ to promote a single uniform for all police in India. Currently, each state has the liberty to have its own number or insignia. Presently, most of the police forces adorn different shades of khaki-coloured uniforms. A few states like Kolkata, Tamil Nadu and Goa have adopted white uniform. The vision of “one nation, one uniform” is to create common identity for law enforcement in India, making it easier for the citizens to recognize police personnel anywhere in the country.
