The state government has approved a total amount of Rs 2046.29 lakh for all the units. Funds have been released for the transit hostel in Noida.

Recently officials had informed Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath during a review meeting that UP STF’s units in Agra, Gorakhpur, Prayagraj and Bareilly are working from the Police Lines, which makes their task more challenging.
