Director General of Police G P Singh officially kicked off the testing campaign by himself undergoing the BMI test at a programme at the 4th Assam Police Force headquarters at Kahilipara in Guwahati on Wednesday. Sources said that the Assam DGP recorded a BMI of 30 which corresponds to “full fit” on the BMI index scale.

It may be mentioned that on May 16, the Assam Police sent out strict directions to all police personnel allotting them three months time to reduce their weight. This order was passed for all police personnel including IPS and APS who are obese.

This order was passed after directives issued by Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and in a bid to check the overall health and fitness levels of police personnel. All cops were granted time till August 15 to reduce their weight.

According to the report  the BMI recording of the police personnel is needed to be below 30. If a cop’s BMI is above 30 then he/she will be given another 3 months to lose weight. The extended deadline will continue till the end of November. However those who fail to meet the weight reduction goal by this time wil ne presented with the option of a Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS)
