NOIDA: Prantiya Rakshak Dal (PRD), which was established as a voluntary group with the intention of providing employment for rural youths who are able to foster communal harmony, lacks adequate staff, at least in Noida.Gautam Budh Nagar currently has four PRD firms with a total sanctioned staff of 420 people.The four organizations employ only 172 workers, according to Rishi Kumar, the district youth welfare and PRD officer.Various government departments and residential societies send requests for PRD staff, but he says we are unable to fulfill the demands due to a shortage of personnel.

Noida police have sent us a demand for 270 personnel, but Kumar said we are unable to provide them with the necessary personnel for everyday duties.Officials said that the Yogi Adityanath government recently increased the daily allowance for the PRD workforce from Rs 375 to Rs 395, and that the state government is considering lowering it to Rs 600.The Lucknow department of youth development and PRD announced in June that 45 members would be added to the force for Gautam Budh Nagar for the financial year 2022-23.The recruits' preliminary training has been completed at Rashtriya Raksha University in Gandhinagar.

PRD's budget for the financial year 2022-23 has been set at Rs 160 crore.The 172 PRD troops from GB Nagar are currently stationed at government schools, ITI institutes, Mandi Samitis, government offices, traffic checks, and also at police stations.Mental wellbeing, in addition to physical fitness, is also a crucial consideration in the selection process.The members will be required to have a fitness certificate issued by a government department or any other relevant authority.
