In the wake of back-to-back drug cases surfacing in the city, Police have decided to take stringent steps to curb the menace. They are closely monitoring educational institutions and IT companies to prevent the Drugs usage. 


IT companies are opening up one by one in the wake of the easing of corona restrictions. Employees who have done work from home so far are arriving in the city. Under the current circumstances, the police are setting up anti-drug committees under the slogan 'Drugs Free Workplace' with the aim of controlling employees' inclination towards drugs due to work stress.


There are about a thousand small and large IT companies in the Cyberabad IT Corridor. Of these, about 4 lakh are male and 2.50 lakh are female employees. Officials believe that setting up anti-drug committees in workplaces with such a large number of employees will not tarnish the IT brand of Hyderabad and will not tarnish the bright future of the employees.


The Anti-Drug Committee consists of representatives from the local police as well as company management, human resources department (HR), security, selected employees, NGOs, and the Society for Cyberabad Security Council (SCSC). The terms of reference of the committees will soon be finalized by the senior officers of the Cyberabad Commissionerate of Police. The respective committees will come into operation from the end of this year.


Employees can report suspected drug consumers and any approaches by drug peddlers to this committee. They will organize seminars and counseling sessions regularly to educate employees about the ill effects of drugs. Those who got into the habit expectedly or unexpectedly can also self-report and undergo rehabilitation.
