Police DPC likely to meet on December 11

4 IGPs, 5 DIGs, 11 SSPs To Be Promoted


Srinagar, Dec 7: The Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) of police is meeting most likely on December 11 to take up promotions of Additional Director Generals (ADGs), Inspector Generals (IGs) and Deputy Inspector Generals (DIGs).
 Earlier, DPC meeting had to be deferred as Model Code of Conduct (MCC) was in force since November 3 in view of Legislative Council polls.
 Preferring anonymity, one of the DPC members told Greater Kashmir that MCC was lifted on Thursday soon after the declaration of results for LC polls.
 DPC would clear promotions of four Inspector Generals of Police (IGPs) to the rank of Additional Director General (ADG), five DIGs to the rank of IGPs and around a dozen Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) are to be promoted to the rank of Deputy Inspector General (DIG).
 DPC comprises Chief Secretary Madhav Lal, Home Secretary Suresh Kumar, Financial Commissioner, Finance, Muhammad Iqbal Khanday and Director General of Police (DGP) Ashok Prasad.
 “The DPC meeting is most likely to take place on December 11,” sources said.
 The committee member said three IGPs to be promoted are of 1987 batch of IPS, while one among them is a KPS officer, conferred IPS in 1987.
 The Committee member said that the DIGs to be promoted belong to 1995 batch of IPS and the SSPs are IPS officers of 1999 batch. 
 “Later the promotions have to be confirmed by the state Cabinet,” he said.
 Among the SSPs who are being promoted as DIG only three officers are direct recruits (IPS) while as the remaining eight are KPS officers and were inducted into IPS in 1999.
 When contacted Chief Secretary Madhav Lal told Greater Kashmir that dates have to be finalized by State Home Department. “I will have to check,” he said.
