Vadodara Police is on a major digital drive these days. All the paper files and documents at the Police Bhavan are being digitised.

The idea is to ensure that the staff has a clean workplace so that it motivates them work more productively,” said city police commissioner, Manoj Sashidhar in conversation with The Times of India.
Several rooms in the Police Bhavan are being emptied to make room for police personnel.

“Cupboards full of records are being emptied and every document is being made digital. The room too will be refurbished,” said Sashidhar.
