As many as 23 officers of the state cadre, promoted as Indian Police Service (IPS) officers up to now over a decade, have been reallocated batches following newest orders by the Ministry of Dwelling Affairs.

The current record has fastened seniority of 23 officers of the state who’ve now been allotted IPS batches and their seniority has been fastened following a request letter by the Punjab Authorities. Many of those officers had been ready for over a decade for the ultimate allocations.
“Punjab has despatched a proposal for fixation of seniority of IPS officers appointed on promotion from SPS quota of Punjab Cadre on the idea of inclusion of their names within the choose lists of 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, which had been notified on April 7, 2021,” states the Centre’s orders of Could 23.
Up to now over a decade, many IPS officers who had been promoted from the state cadre had been nominated by the state authorities, superseding a number of senior Punjab-cadre officers, resulting in confusion and disparity.

Others from their batch of 2008 had been just lately promoted to the DIG rank final month. The federal government can now order their promotion, following which all three will probably be promoted and maintain greater posts.
“Others who’re but to finish their necessary IPS coaching have been unnoticed of this record and will probably be promoted solely after they full their necessary IPS coaching,” stated an insider.
“Six of the 23 officers promoted and re-allotted batches, have already retired from service. All this passed off up to now decade of successive state governments and lots of officers got senior batches, whereas many others who had joined the service a lot earlier than, needed to wait for his or her IPS batches,” stated a senior IPS officer. “Now the current Union Authorities order is in suppression of ministry’s two earlier orders, which implies the re-allocation of IPS batches now’s ultimate,” he stated.
