Since 1 January 2015 Rajpura village has not witnessed any crime. So it is labelled as “crime-free” village by the Rajasthan police.
Notably, Rajasthan’s 1,062 villages also not registered any criminal case was since January 1, 2015.
“Court kacheri ko ke faydo, koi choti moti baat aiyan hi nibta levan (What is the utility of courts, we resolve smaller issue on our own),” said Darshran Singh, a native of Karnisar village under Taranagar police station of Churu.
Police have decided to felicitate 16 such crime-free villages in their district. “We are felicitating them just to tell others that if they too will come in the same category, they too will get this recognition. We have 10 police stations and 16 crime-free villages. Certainly, our focus is to make more villages crime free,” said Digant Anand, superintendent of police, Churu.

“The idea is to increase this number of villages having no crime every year. For this our SHOS, deputy superintendent of police, additional SPs and SPS take time to time meetings with the villagers. We have 1,062 villages in Rajasthan where no crime has taken place since January 1, 2015.”
He added that maximum number of such villages are in Jaisalmer where there are 209 villages where no crime has taken place in the past seven years. “We have learnt that in these villages if any smaller crime takes place, they don’t approach the police and resolve the issue within the village. These are mainly the villages where 50 to 100 families live together,” Meharda added.
Since 2015 Kota, Bundi and Ajmer are the districts where they have 3 villages each having crime free status.
