In the backdrop of the G20 Summit to be held in the national capital, a watershed moment of India, government departments across the spectrum of ministries are working hard to showcase the grandiose of the country. Renovation work is in full swing to catch the eyes of foreign delegations. 

The Delhi Police department has planned to renovate 50 stations and a proposal in this regard was sent to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs last month.

The police stations at Aman Vihar, Kalkaji, Connaught Place, North Avenue, Chanakyapuri, Parliament Street among 50 will be refurbished with Delhi Police’s official red-and-blue colour scheme ahead of the G20 event, said officials, reported PTI.
