The Daund Subdivision, which is a cluster of police stations, will be divided to form Shirur subdivision, which will have Shirur, Shikrapur and Ranjangaon MIDC police stations under its area of responsibility. A new post of a Deputy Superintendent of Police rank has also been sanctioned to head Shirur subdivision.

Manchar police station has been divided to form Pargaon Karkhana police station.

Portions of Vadgaon Nimbalkar police station and Baramati Taluka police station will be combined to form Malegaon police station.

Another area under Vadgaon Nimbalkar police station will now come under the newly sanctioned Supa police station.

Indapur police station will be divided to form Nira Nrusinhpur police station.

A new Uruli Kanchan police station will be formed from a chunk of Loni Kalbhor police station.
