“Henceforth, whenever any occasion/situation arises and preventive or other action is required at any of the state bhavans (houses), efforts should also be made to contact the resident commissioner or his representative,” the circular stated.

“Where delay can result in any commission of crime or escalate law and order problem or damage to life and property, appropriate legal action should be initiated without any delay. In such situations, assistance of the Resident Commissioner or his representative should be obtained at the first opportunity,” it added.
