February 13, 2024 – Dr Bhavani Rao visited the Southern Sector CRPF, Warnagal, Teklanagana 58 Battalion, to oversee the progress and implementation of the award winning “SAMEEKSHANAM – Love You Zindagi” program that is in progress.

The implementation of this course has seen a drastic reduction in suicides amongst Jawans in the Srinagar Sector.
The SAMEEKSHANAM course, now being implemented in the Southern States of India, is designed to enhance the personal and professional growth of CRPF Jawans and commandants, not only enhancing skills, but also their overall well-being, by focusing on strategies to strengthen cognitive and emotional resilience. Notably, the program also places a significant emphasis on promoting gender harmony.

This phase 2 of the program, during which the Jawans and commandants who became Master Trainers certified by Amrita University are themselves teaching the course in their respective battalions.

The initiative is a collaborative endeavour involving researchers and trainers from the Center for Women’s Empowerment and Gender Equality CWEGE,  Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, the South Sector CRPF and Telangana State Special Police TSSP.

A previous initiative led by Amrita in partnership with the Srinagar sector CRPF in Kashmir, was honoured with the prestigious “Smart Policing Award-2022” by FICCI. This award recognised the innovative approach covering critical areas such as Mental Health, Gender Sensitization, family well-being, financial literacy, and reflections on masculinity, which benefitted 28,000 CRPF personnel in Kashmir.
