"The government of India selects best performing police stations out of 16,671 in the country every year to “incentivise more effective functioning of police stations and bring healthy competition among them,” the MHA said.

“The ranking process commenced with shortlisting of the best performing police stations in each State on the basis of addressing property offence, crime against women, crime against weaker sections, missing persons, unidentified found person and unidentified dead bodies. The last parameter has been introduced this year,” MHA said in a statement.

The statement said that the rankings were in accordance with the directions of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Directors General of Police conference in 2015. He had directed that parameters should be laid down for grading police stations and assessing their performance based on feedback.
