Most of the burning ghats are on the banks of Ganges or other rivers.  The already tops in executing the clean Ganga mission schemes among the five states through which the Ganges flows.

The municipalities or municipal corporations in the State that maintains towns on the banks of Ganges are discarding cremation process through wood and will sole operate through electricity controlled measures.

The State has already sent names of 10 municipalities for clearance from the Central Government.

West Bengal now has electricity operated crematoriums functioning at Howrah, Nimtala, Maheshtala, Hooghly-Chinsurah and Halishahar, all of which are on the banks of the Ganges.

The crematoriums will be renovated with anti-pollution devices and the numbers of chambers in the crematoriums will also be increased.

A woman police officer will head each of these police stations and majority of the other ranks will constitute of women also.

In the first phase 20 women police stations were set up at Howrah, Barasat, Baruipur, Asansol, Jhargram, Contai, Chinsurah, Krishnanagar, Siliguri and Jalpaiguri Sadar, sub-divisional headquarters of Burdwan Sadar, Medinipur Sadar, Purulia Sadar, Bankura Sadar, Darjeeling Sadar, Sreerampore (Hooghly), Suri (Birbhum), English Bazar (Malda), Diamond Harbour (South 24-Parganas) and Barrackpore (North 24-Parganas) have got such stations.

WB CM Ms Mamata Banerjee has been working relentlessly for the safety of women across the State. It was her idea to have all women police stations in the state to combat women related crimes. In a police station where women will not only feel free and safe to report criminal cases against them, but where such cases will also be dealt with immense sensitivity and compassion.

In another innovative step, the West Bengal Government is launching a special police cell to deal with highway accidents. This cell will be known as ‘Highway Traffic Police’. Along with investigating accident cases on highways, they will also take prompt action so that accident victims get immediate medical attention and effective rescue missions.
