This section provides information specifically on allocation for women police personnel under the Modernization of Police Force Scheme, a central scheme administered by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, and aimed at assisting states in strengthening police infrastructure.  Under MPF, allocations are made under Non-Plan head, which covers mobility, weapons, equipment, training equipment, and forensic equipment, and under Plan head, which covers construction of police stations/outposts/lines, police housing, forensic science laboratories and training infrastructure.  To receive funds under the scheme, states have to submit a State Action Plan including proposals under Non-Plan and Plan heads, and a Supplementary Action Plan constituting 20% of both Non-Plan and Plan heads of the main plan.  The supplementary plans are to be operationalized for additional fund allocation at the Revised Estimate (RE) stage and are subject to furnishing of utilization certificates and availability of funds.

In 2014, the MHA issued an advisory requesting the states to include proposals specifically on improving facilities for women police while submitting their annual state action plan under the MPF scheme.  The proposals were to prioritize amenities such as separate toilet facilities, rest rooms, and lockable shelf storage in all new police stations, outposts and barracks proposed under the MPF scheme.

Hyderabad also receives central funds under the Mega City Policing (MCP) Scheme.  The MCP is a sub-set of the Non-Plan MFP scheme and is funded on a 60:40 ratio between the centre and the state.  The scheme has been approved for 6 cities which includes Hyderabad (MHA Annual Report, 2016-2017) and mainly covers costs on technology such as CCTV camera networks, command and control facilities and Dial 100 facilities towards making these cities safer.  Under this scheme, Hyderabad received 22.34 crores in 2014-2015 financial year.  It did not receive anything in 2012-13 or 2015-16 (reasons are unclear).
