Government to relieve senior IPS Officers of J&K cadre


Jammu:Government of India is planning to relieve more senior IPS officers of Jammu & Kashmir cadre from the deputation.

Also, the State Government seems to have developed a formula for promotion of State cadre police officers (Jammu Kashmir Police Services) to the rank of DIGs following their induction into the IPS, besides DySPs to SPs and regularization of others as DySPs within the next few days after settlement of the seniority disputes as there were reports that the Home Department was likely to publish the final seniority list shortly.

The Central Government has recently cleared return of two senior officers in the rank of Inspector Generals of Police (IGPs) from the deputation to their parent cadre State of Jammu and Kashmir.

They included Mukesh Singh, who was on deputation with the NIA for past several years and SS Khandare, who was on inter-State deputation in Maharashtra, where he was posted as IG Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), West Sector Headquarters, Navi Mumbai. Khandare had recently joined Jammu and Kashmir after return from long deputation and has been posted as IGP Prisons.

Mukesh Singh, a 1996 batch officer of J&K cadre, is likely to join the State back by the end of this month.
