In a presentation to the Seventh Pay Commission this week, they have argued that the police "is a uniformed service, it must also be brought under the One Rank One Pension Scheme recently offered to the defence services."

Pointing to the work pressure, the police said, in 2013, it has registered 66,40,378 fresh cases and caught over 74,20,000 people for various crimes.
