Introduction to NRI Wing
        Persons of Indian origin residing abroad and NRIs face the constraint of inability to be physically present at all times in India and have short time at their disposal during visit to India on account of which they are not able to follow up their personal cases relating to their property issues and other matters in India, mostly because of procedural delays in inquiries conducted by police and court cases. Therefore, inquiries pertaining to the NRI complaints are necessarily required to be time bound. Also, in order to ensure fairness and transparency in cases where there are allegations that inquiry through the local police is likely to be biased, these matters are now being examined in the NRI Wing.
        Government of Punjab established the new office of NRI Wing at Phase-7, Mohali on 22nd August, 2013 and this Wing is presently headed by Addl. DGP rank officer who has been designated as Addl.DGP/NRI Wing, Punjab. He is assisted by team of AIGs, DSPs, SHOs of NRI Police Stations and about 268 Police personnel of various ranks have been attached from different units of Punjab Police
        15 NRI Police Stations duly notified and having independent jurisdiction for entire State of Punjab are functioning under the supervision of ADGP/NRI Wing.
        A control room is also functioning in NRI Wing at its office at SAS Nagar, Mohali round the clock for attending to complaints of NRI's
