Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that 1982 batch IPS officers may shortly be empanelled for posting as Director General in the central government. Reportedly, the matter was sent to the Appointments Committee of Cabinet 10 days back for ratification.
Among all prospective candidates, only four officers are currently posted at the centre – K K Sharma (SDG, BSF), PVR Reddy (SDG, CRPF), S K Bhagat (SDG, CRPF), Manoj Kumar Singla (SDG, BSF). D D Palsalgikar (SDG, IB) repatriated to the state who is set to receive the baton from Javed Ahmed (IPS:1980:MH), the outgoing Mumbai Police Commissioner.
These four officers already on central deputation may enjoy an edge in getting promoted to DG rank and in appointment & posting in coming months as chiefs of many central paramilitary forces are expected to retire this year.
Last empanelment of DG/equivalent (1981 batch IPS) took place on December 23, 2015 wherein 10 IPS officers were empanelled as DG and one as DG equivalent.
Keep waiting the next list for 1982 batch officers.
