1-10.    Police Station Jurisdiction - District and the railway police sub-divisions are divided into police station jurisdictions according to administrative convenience and in order to meet the requirements or the Code of Criminal Procedure [section 4 (1)(s)]. The boundaries of these jurisdictions have all been fixed from time to time on the authority of the Provincial Government, and are unalterable save under the same authority. Outposts are located where necessary for the control of crime and are subordinate to the police stations in the jurisdictions of which they are located. Normally, a police station is in charge of a sub-Inspector of police and an outpost in commanded by an assistant sub-Inspectors head constable.

            No alteration in the number of police stations and outposts or in the boundaries of police station jurisdictions may be made without the sanction of the Provincial Government.

The definition of “officer in charge of a police station,” in section 4(1) (p). Code of Criminal Procedure, empowers other police officers, in certain circumstances, to exercise the powers of such an officer.

The powers of sub-inspectors, who are not officers in charge of police station and junior officers, in dealing with unlawful assemblies, are explained in Rule 14-56(3).

1-13.    Classes and ranks of police officers - The expression “gazetted police officers” is applied to police officers appointed under section 4, Act V of 1861, and includes the Inspector-General, Deputy Inspector General, Assistant Inspectors General, Superintendent and Deputy Superintendents.

The expression “lower subordinate” includes all other enrolled police officers.


1-14.    The Commissioner - The Commissioner exercised through his district Magistrates a general control over the administration of his division in criminal as in other matters, and is specially responsible for the maintenance of co-operation between the police and the magistracy. 1[* * * *] He is expected to give attention to special reports and measures for dealing with special types of crime, [2]1[* * * *] the location of additional police quartered in disturbed areas and the work of the prosecuting agency.

It is the duty of the Deputy Inspector General of the range to keep the Commissioner of the division fully informed of tall matters of importance concerning the efficiency of the police and the state of crime.

1-15.    The District Magistrate - The District Magistrate is the head of the criminal administration of the district, and the police force is the instrument provided by government to enable him to enforce his authority and fulfil his responsibility for the maintenance of law and order. The police force in a district is, therefore, placed by law under the general control and direction of the District Magistrate who is responsible that it carries out its duties in such a manner that effective protection is afforded to the public against lawlessness and disorder.

In the exercise of this control the district Magistrate is required to inspect police stations. He shall exercise no executive authority in matter which concern solely the internal administration and training of the force, or in questions of discipline as between police officers and their departmental superiors, but his general control extends to all other matters. In all that affects the relations between the police and the public or the keeping of the public peace, the District Magistrate must be consulted and his orders complied with.

He may (a) require the Superintendent to furnish him with any documents relating to the conduct of any subordinate enrolled police officer in any case in which the conduct or character of such police officer is likely to affect his dealings with the public or the prevention and detection of crime; (b) direct the Superintendent to enquire into any allegation of misconduct or neglect of duty on the part of any subordinate enrolled police officer in any case in which such misconduct or neglect of duty affects, or is likely to affect, such officer’s dealings with public, or the prevention and detection of crime, and to submit the record to superior police authority ; and (c) direct the Superintendent to furnish information on any matter connected with crime, the criminal classes, the prevention of disorder or the distribution of the police force, or on any other matter not connected solely with the internal administration of the force.

It exercising his powers of control, the district Magistrate should avoid doing anything to weaken the authority of the Superintendent. All communications between the District Magistrate and the police shall, whenever possible, be conveyed through, and all instructions and orders to them shall similarly be issued from, the Superintendent.


The above rule covers the position of district Magistrates in relation to the railway police. The District Magistrate has no departmental authority over such police, but his responsibility for the criminal administration of his district includes that portion of the railway police jurisdiction which lies within it. He has, therefore, the same authority to call for information and to inspect police stations which he has in respect of the district police, and the same interest in the prevention, detection and prosecution of railway crime as in the in the case of district crime.

1-16.    Duties of Superintendent towards District Magistrate -  The primary duty of the Superintendent of Police is to afford the District Magistrate the utmost possible assistance, both himself and through the police force under his command, in the preservation of the peace and the prevention or detection of crime. He shall keep in close and constant personal touch with the district Magistrate and shall keep him fully and promptly informed both by personal conference and by written reports, of all matters relating to crime and public order. While it is his duty to initiate action of the police in such matter, he must keep the District Magistrate informed and be guided by his orders.

            The Superintendent of Police shall keep the District Magistrate informed of his movements generally when away from headquarters, and shall conform to his wishes should the District Magistrate, for reasons connected with the criminal administration of the district, require the Superintendent of Police to proceed to any place in the district or to remain at headquarters at any time.

1-17.    Authority of District Magistrate in regard to postings, & c - All postings, removals and transfers of officers in charge of police stations within a district, shall be made by the Superintendent with the approval of the District Magistrate.

            If the district Magistrate considers the presence of a police officer of or below the rank of sub-inspector prejudicial to the welfare of the locality in which he is posted, he may direct his transfer elsewhere within the district. In the case of dis-satisfaction with the work or conduct of officers above the rank of sub-inspector, District Magistrate shall communicate their complaint to the Deputy Inspector General of the range.

1-18.    Sub-divisional and subordinate Magistrates - The authority of a sub-divisional or a subordinate magistrate over the police is strictly limited to the powers given him by law in the exercise of his judicial functions. Any adverse comments on the proceedings of the police, which he may make, shall be communicated to the Superintendent through the District Magistrate. Similarly, if he considers that any police officer should be called on to explain his conduct, he shall report the facts of the case to the District Magistrate, who will take such action, as he considers necessary.

1-19.    Sub-divisional and subordinate Magistrate – Co-operation with - Sub-divisional and subordinate are held strictly responsible, under the control of the District Magistrate, for the maintenance of the peace of the area which is made over so their charge; though they have no extra-judicial authority over the police, they are not merely Judges. The law gives them many more powers than those required for hearing cases, and they are interested in every crime in their jurisdiction from the moment of its commission. The maintenance of law and order and the suppression of crime depend upon the join efforts of the public, the magistracy and the police and not upon the energy of any one of these alone. The most intimate and friendly co-operation between the police and the magistracy as a whole, and between particular magistrates and the police stationed in the area of their jurisdiction, is essential. Superintendents of Police must encourage such co-operation by every means and must sternly check all contrary tendencies. Gazetted officers and upper subordinates should cultivate friendly personal relations with all magistrates with whom their work brings them in contact, and every opportunity should be taken to keep magistrates informed of the state of crime in their ilagas. Conferences between magistrates and police officers, at which difficulties on either side can be discussed and remedies devised, should be encouraged; police officers coming in with chalans should frequently take the opportunity of obtaining an interview with the ilaga Magistrate and discussing with him the state of crime in their jurisdictions; and prosecuting officers, who form a valuable link between the investigating officer and the magistracy, should be instructed to pass on to magistrates any information of interest of importance regarding criminal matters of which they may be aware.


            The remarks of the Indian Police Commission, 1902-03, on the subject of relations between the police and magistrates are published as Appendix 1-19.

1-20.    Rights of sub-division and subordinate Magistrates to inspect police records - Sub-Divisional and subordinate magistrates are not authorized to inspect police stations or to record remarks or criticisms in inspection books provided that the District Magistrate, which the concurrence of the Deputy Inspector-General, may permit a Sub-divisional Magistrate, who is a senior Assistant Commission, to make such inspectors, and to record his remarks in the inspection book. A Sub-divisional, or Ilage Magistrate, may, however, in his executive capacity, call for any of the records and registered which deal with crime for a police station, and may request the officer in charge of a police station to come to him and explain them. The orders of Government regulating the production of police records in courts of law are contained in rules 27-24.

1-21.    Police to obey all orders issued in judicial capacity - The police shall obey and execute all lawful orders issued to them by judicial officers in the exercise of the powers conferred on them by law.

Appendix no. 1-18

Appendix no. 1-18

extract from the report of the indian police commission, 1902-03

            124.     Omitted.

This is the connection which the law intends to exist between the magistrate empowered to take cognizance of police cases and the police. It involves the first information being sent to this magistrate, his being able to watch the case from the first, to order investigation where the police are not investigating, or to investigation up to the very last. His connection with the case is intended to begin with the first information and to continue to the end; through out he is intended to exercise an intelligent interest in the. These provisions are very generally lost sight of. The intention of the law is defeated when the first information is sent, not as required by section 157 to the magistrate having jurisdiction, but nominally to the District Magistrate, really to a prosecuting inspector or other official at the headquarters, who files it until the case is sent up finally for trial. It is also defeated when the magistrate assumes what he imagines to be a judicial attitude, and never looks at a paper or takes any interest in the case until it comes before him in court, and proceeds to dispose of it with regard only to what is put before him by the parties without any effort to do what more he can to arrive at the truth. A valuable check on police work and valuable powers in criminal administration are thus lost.

            125.     The intention of the law is that the police and the magistracy should work together, the former investigating the case for the magistrate, and the latter conducting the magisterial enquiry or trial, weighing the evidence collected by the police, sifting further any points that have been missed or inadequately treated, hearing all that the accused has to say or adduce on his own behalf, and deciding the case in the interest of truth and justice.

            126.     Omitted.

The courts should be encouraged to take notice of any misconduct on the part of a police office, or of any reasonable suspicion that he has been guilty of such misconduct. Unless such misconduct is established after hearing any explanation the police officer concerned may have to offer, or unless reference to it is necessary for the elucidation of the case, it is only just to him that no notice of it should be taken in the judgment; but a separate note should be at once forwarded to the District Magistrate, who should pay due attention to it, conducing by competent and impartial agency any enquiry that may be necessary, and absolving from blame any police officer who may after all be found innocent of fault, but taking adequate notice of any misconduct that may be established.


            The principles enunciated in the concluding portion of the above quotation have been accepted by the Provincial Government and are embodied in Chief Court Circular No. 7-3428-G, of 19th September 1903, which reads as follows:---

Chief Court Circular No. 7-3428-G, dated the 19th September 1903.

Dated Lahore, the 19th September 1903.

To – All Sessions Judges, District Magistrates and Subordinate Criminal Courts in the Punjab.

            The attention of the presiding officers of all criminal courts is called to the following extract from the proceedings of His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor of the Punjab in the Home (Police) Department, No. 1632-S, dated 30th August 1903:---

“ The Lieutenant-Governor agrees with the Inspector-General of Police that it is undesirable for magistrates to make remarks in criminal cases censuring the action of police officers unless such remarks are strictly relevant to the case and the officers concerned have had an opportunity of explaining their action. If remarks to which exception can be taken come to the notice of the Inspector General of Police, they should be referred for the orders of the Lieutenant-Governor, who will invite the attention of the Hon’able Judges of the Chief Court to any case in which action can appropriately be taken.”

            The Hon’able Judges trust that all courts will be careful in future to observe the rule laid down in these remarks. District Magistrates should themselves take whatever action seems desirable in any case coming to their notice in which the spirit of the rule has been infringed by any court subordinate to them.

CHAPTER II-Establishment

2-1.      Permanent establishment how fixed – The permanent establishment of a district is fixed on a careful calculation of the actual number of men required for fixed duties plus the percentage approved by Government as a reserve to provide for casualties and training in the various ranks. The establishment of each district is shown in a distribution statement in Form 2-1, issued by the Inspector General.

2-2.      Fixed duties – (1) The term “fixed duties” includes:---

(a)        Cantonment and city police.

(b)        Rural police stations and their subordinate posts.

(c)        Headquarter establishment; guards; escorts; specialists (e.g., traffic staff); armed reserves, and mounted police.

(d)        Office and court duties.

(2) Under division A the establishment required shall be calculated separately for (1) the investigation and station house staff (2) the watch and ward staff. No general scale can be laid down. In calculating the investigation and station house strength the principles by which the strength of rural police stations is fixed (sub-rul 3 below) shall be followed as far as possible, but additional provision will frequently be necessary for duties such as telephone orderlies, extra clercial staff, detective staff, a permanent lock-up-guard, & c. In estimating the beat staff it is necessary to plot out on a map after close study of local conditions, the number of fixed points (other than special traffic points) day and night beats, and patrols required for each town or cantonment. Careful consideration shall be given to economizing men by providing intermittent patrols instead of fixed points of beats, and by providing means of locomotion to enable a few men to cover a considerable area, wherever possible. When the number of beats, & c., has been fixed, the establishment necessary to furnish them shall be calculated on the basis of every man performing eight hours duty in each period of twenty-four hours. On this basis, the necessary calculations can be made for, and rotation of duties fixed between day and night duties, duties lasting throughout the twenty-four hours, and intermittent duties. Supervision over the watch and ward staff shall be provided at the rate of 1 head constable to every 10 Constables; 1 assistant sub-inspector to every 5 head constables and 1 sub inspector to every 100 constables. No ratio between police and population is prescribed, except that in the case of towns with a population of over 30,000 the total strength of police for watch and ward should not ordinarily exceed one constable to every inhabitants. In each case local conditions, such as the volume of commercial activity, the importance and frequency of fairs and festivals, the general criminality of the neighbourhood and the like must be considered.

(3) The strength of rural police stations (division B) is based mainly on the incidece of crime. A normal police station is held to be one registering an average of seventy-five cases a year. For such a police station the minimum staff shall be 1 sub-inspector, 1 assistant sub-inspector, 1 head constable (clerk and 12 foot constables. In police stations, where crime is very light the number of constables may be reduced to ten. For every fifty cases above the normal figure shown to be the annual average of a police station, the staff shall be increased by 1 assistant sub-inspector and 2 constables. This standard calculation may be varied for adequate reasons in special cases. The staff of outposts shall be calculated strictly in accordance with the duty it is required to perform.

(4) In division C, headquarter establishment shall be calculated in exact detail of authorized posts to be filled. Under this heading shall be included all enrolled personnel of the Lines establishment, instructors, orderlies, of all descriptions, and upper subordinates, who do not come under any other division. Guards shall be calculated at the actual strength required to form each guard, four constables being allotted to each sentry post, the number of constables allotted to each sentry post being fixed in accordance with rule 18.5(5) and a second head constable being provided for each guard which furnishes more than two sentries. The strength required for escorts shall be calculated on the scales laid down in Chapter XVIII in relation to the average demands in the district for treasure and prisoners escorts, other than the escorting of under-trial prisoners to and from the Court. Provision may be made, if necessary, for escorts at sub-divisions as well as at head quarters. The staff of specialists shall include the special detective staff or traffic staff and such other personnel as may be authorized for particular duties not included in any other division. The strength required for traffic duties shall be calculated on the lines prescribed in sub-rule (2) above for watch and ward duties; other special staff shall be calculated in strict accordance with actual duties to be performed.

(5) Court and office duties (division D) shal be calculated according to the actual number of posts to be filled both at district headquarters and at sub-divisions and other magisterial headquarters on the scale prescribed by Pol8ice Rules or other competent authority. In addition, establishment shall be provided, on the scale prescribed in Chapter XVIII and on the basis of the average daily number, for the escort of under-trial prisoners to and from the Courts, and the guarding of such prisoners in Court, at district headquarter and all other places where such escorts are permanently required.

(6) In the calculation of fixed duties no provision shall be made for reserves or for reliefs otherwise than as provided in the foregoing sub-rules. Deficiencies in strength of short duration shall be met by curtailment of duties; those of longer duration, caused by leave, other than casual leave resignations, etc., shall be made good from the reserves referred to in rule 2.3 below.

2-3.      Reserves – Reserves in the various ranks are fixed to provide for casualties and training. Reserves in the ranks of gazetted officers are included in the cadres, as fixed by the Government of Pakistan. [4][*   *   *]. That in the rank of sub-inspectors at 15 percent of the sanctioned number of Pakistani inspectors and sub-inspectors; that in the rank of head constables at 14 percent of the sanctioned number of assistant sub-inspectors and head constables and that in the rank of constable at 16.5 percent of the number of constables sanctioned for fixed duties The strength of armed reserves and mounted police is fixed for each district in accordance with the orders of the Provincial Government.

2-4.      Authorized duties – In calculating establishment every duty for which proper authority exists shall be included, and authority shall be obtained from the Inspector-General for any duty the necessity of which can be established, if it is not already authorized. Police shall on no account be supplies, except as provided in rule 2-16 or for other emergent and purely temporary occasions, for duties which are not so authorized.

2-5.      Permanent additions to the ordinary force – All proposals for the revision of establishment shall be submitted officially through (1) the district Magistrate, (2) Deputy Inspector General of Police, (3) Commissioner and (4) the Inspector General of Police for the orders of Government. A proposition statement in Civil Account Form No.5 shall be submitted in cases which relate to a general revision of establishment or which cannot be set out clearly without it. Proposals for minor changes in establishment are required to be accompanied only by statement showing the increase are reduction in the annual cost, which the proposal involves.

2-6.      Method of submitting proposal – (1) Proposals shall be accompanied by a copy of the distribution statement – Form 2-1 and a concise and comprehensive statement showing the object of the proposed revision and the date from which it is intended that it shall have effect. Whenever the figures for the reserve represent less than the percentages prescribed in rule 2-3 calculated on the revised establishment, application shall be made for the necessary increase to bring up the reserve to the authorized scale. In the case of proposals for the reduction of establishment, reserves shall be similarly adjusted. The channel of submission shall be as in rule 2-5 above.

(2) Proposals affecting upper and lower subordinates shall be submitted on separate forms.

2-7.      Initial and annual charges – In all application for revision of establishment due provision shall be made for initial charges of Rs.200 in the case of each upper subordinate and      Rs. 10 in the case of each lower subordinate on account of clothing; and Rs.15 on account of beds and boxes in the case of each lower subordinate added to the strength. Provision shall further be made for the following annual charges:---

2-8.      Calculating rates of pay and grades – In calculating the cost of pro-posted revisions of establishment the pay of appointments shall be estimated at the mean rate of pay of the time-scale of the rank concerned. In the case of ranks for which selection grades are authorized such proposed new appointments shall be shown in each of such grades as may be required to maintain the authorized percentages thereof. In the case of proposals for reduction of establishment similar adjustments shall be made. The allotment of posts to selection grads shall be made in districts officers for the rank of constables, in range offices for the rank of sub-inspectors and in the Central Police Office for other ranks.


2-5.      Additional Police under sections 13 and 14 – (1) Sections 13 and 14 of the Police Act V of 1861, regulate the employment of police officers at the cost of individuals, and the appointment of police officers in the neighborhood of railways and other works.

Thus if a constable is deputed to attend a private function, such as a wedding, which involve his absence normal duty throughout the whole of one working day, say from sunrise to midnight, he will be considered as having performed over-time duty and will entitled to extra remuneration, but should the duty involve his absence from sunrise to sunset of the following pay, he will not considered as on over-time duty and will be entitled to no remuneration in addition to his pay. Superintendent may, however, use their discretion in dealing with cases in which, in their opinion, the 24 hour rule cannot in fairness be applied.

The rules regarding enrolment, discipline, etc., of such special police are given in Appendix No. 2-24(3).

APPENDIX No. 2-24(3)


1.         When the entertainment of special police officers becomes necessary, or desirable, efforts should be made to appoint volunteers under section 17 of the Police Act (V of 1861) up to the numbers and in the various ranks required. No unwilling person should be appointed unless sufficient volunteers cannot be found.

2.         Under section 17 of Act V of 1861, residents of a disturbed area may be appointed special police officers of any rank, but no such police officers shall be appointed to a rank equal to that of the senior officers of the regular police present on the spot.

3.         Special police officers shall be subordinate to, and be under the orders of, the senior officer of the regular police present on the spot.

4.         Special police officers should ordinarily be chosen from among the respectable, loyal, and influential persons of the neighbouhood whose authority is likely to be respected by the masses and who are likely to use their influence to prevent disturbances. It is not desirable ot choose ring-leaders of contentious factions unless such ring-leaders are really influential persons and in no case should a special officer be appointed as a punitive measure.

5.         When special police officers are appointed, the more influential and useful from amongst them may be appointed to senior rank above the others, and be required to enforce discipline as laid down in police rules among the special police officers appointed under their command.

6.         Whenever possible special police officers of good social standing should be encouraged to bring with them their tenants and dependants, who will ordinarily be enrolled as special police officers of the lower subordinate grades, a post being to the special police officer through whose agency the lower subordinates are enrolled, subject to the provision of rule 2 foregoing.

7.         Special police officers of the lower subordinate ranks will ordinate may, with ordinarily be armed with batons or lathis at the discretion of the Superintendent of Police.

8.         An armlet or brassard with the letter S. P. and Serial No. should be issued to such special police officer other than those appointed to rank as upper subordinates.

            NOTE.  Special police officers of the rank of upper subordinate may, with advantage, be given a Sam Browne belt with a revolver or sword if such articles are available.

            9.         A special police officer of the rank of upper subordinate will be entitled to receive all courtesies due to an officer of his rank, but his authority will extend only to special police officers under his orders and not to officers of the regular police. Influential persons of superior social standing who may be enrolled, should, as a rule, be employed on staff and supervising duties and given relatively higher rank than others of lower status similarly enrolled. Such persons should not have menial or unreasonable duties assigned to them, but the object should be to employ them in the manner best suited to make their personal influence effective.

            10.       Discipline – The requirements in this respect should usually be light. Any conditions of the office which might be regarded by local residents as offensive and unnecessarily irksome should not be insisted on. Physical drill, for instance, would in most cases be inappropriate and the saluting of petty officers unnecessary, while parades or attendance at the police station, when necessary, should be so regulated as to cause as ltitle inconvenience as possible.

            11.       A copy of sections 17 to 21 inclusive of Police Act (V f 1861) and also a copy of rules relating to the enrolment, etc., of special police officers shall be given to each special police officer as soon after enrolment as may be possible.

            12.       Superintendent of Police entertaining special police will arranged for their feeding by the purchase and distribution of food according to the following scale:-

1-1/2 lbs. atta, or in lieu rice 1-1/2 lbs.

4 oz. dhal.

4 oz. fresh meat (or in lieu 4 oz. gur).

1/2 oz. tea.

1/2 oz. salt.

1 oz. gur.

1-1/2 lbs. fuel.

Spices 1/6 oz. chillies

1/6 oz. turmeric or 1-1/2 oz. in all as available.

1/6 oz. garlic

or by a cash payment of the cost of these articles at a rate to be notified by the Inspector-General when special police are entertained.
