Police in the Indian province of Maharashtra are taking part in a huge IT training project involving the education of 120,000 officers from 900 far-flung stations. But the project's sheer size, coupled with IT infrastructure inadequacies, threaten to derail its progress. Part of a government drive to computerise India's police forces, the training coincides with efforts to establish IT systems in all police stations throughout Maharashtra. The training is being delivered through a network of 78 Zee-affiliated training centres, alongside a dedicated IT training centre set up by Zee at the force's Mumbai HQ.
