A Welfare Wing Of Telangana State Police
A full-fledged Welfare Division at Police Head Quarters, under the direct control of Inspector General of Police, handles and co-ordinates various welfare activities carried out under the auspices of T.S. State Police Welfare Society, for which the DGP is the President. The Society initiates and undertakes all social and economic welfare measures aimed at ameliorating the conditions of members of the TS Police and their families, to afford relief in all deserving cases where such help is not forthcoming from other Government and Non-Government agencies.
Bhadratha started to provide social security to all the Police personnel and their families.

Policeman works when the rest of the world sleeps. Due to irregular timings, professional hazards, stressful job, policemen get into serious health problems. Sometimes they have to undergo major surgeries and suffer from serious diseases of heart, kidney and cancer. Many times they are not in a position to get treatment in good hospitals and clear the bills. They are put to great mental and physical stress when they get into serious health problems. The re-imbursement facility given by the Government is cumbersome and not able to fulfill their needs. To overcome all these difficulties an innovative scheme called “AROGYA BHADRATHA” has been designed and introduced.
