In the intro, mention the landmark Prakash Singh judgment and directives issued to the states.

In the body, mention the passage of police acts by the state in violation of the Supreme Court directive and mere a legislative cover to protect the existing arrangements. This is also creating different arrangements in different states. In the suggestion mention need for Model Police Act by the Centre, need for fresh look at the distribution of powers under the seventh schedule.

Conclude by mentioning the need for a uniform police structure in the country.
