Seemanth K. Singh as CPC does not have enough powers

Commisioner Seemanth Kumar SinghMangalore: The new office building of Mangalore City Police Commissioner office premises, has been opened with great fanfare and jubilation by local police and the state department. Both CM and DGP-IGP had attended the opening ceremony and addressed the gathering on Saturday. It appears that the Commissioner of Police has been given a posh building without adequate powers to exercise with the grade it brings.

Since his appointment in April 2010, the police city commissioner has only curtailed powers to exercise. All applications except those relating to revenue(which go to the revenue collector or Deputy Commissioner), can be submitted to CPC.

But discretionary powers in issuing gun licences, or permitting amusement parks even clamping of Sn.144, are not handled by present CPC Seemanth K.Singh even after 2 years. Is this true?

The local people find that city police Commissioner should be given more powers to deal with various situations that arise in this coastal region.
