4 DIGs Expected to Be Promoted to IGPs, 6 SSPs to Become DIGs

4 DIGs likely to be promoted as IGPs, 6 SSPs as DIGs


Shortage of officers in both ranks

Proposal may be cleared after MHA nod

Jammu, June 23: A proposal has been mooted for promotion of four IPS officers of 2007 batch, presently posted as DIGs, as IGPs and six IPS officers of 2011 batch from SSPs to DIGs. The proposal is under consideration of the UT Government and a decision is expected within few days in consultations with the Union Home Ministry.

Official sources told the Excelsior that there has been shortage of IPS officers in the rank of IGPs and DIGs as many officers have proceeded on the Central deputation. Some of the Additional DGPs have been holding additional charge of the IGPs.

Sources said four DIGs, who are IPS officers of 2007 batch, are tipped to be promoted as IGPs.

They include Sunil Gupta, DIG Jammu-Samba-Kathua Range, Sujit Kumar, DIG CID Kashmir, Vivek Gupta, DIG North Kashmir and M Suleman Choudhary, DIG Personnel (Police Headquarters).

The officers are eligible for promotion as IGPs on January 1, 2025.

However, as per the sources, keeping in view the urgent requirement of the officers in the rank of IGP, the Government can promote them six months in advance in relaxation of the rules, a practice which has been followed earlier also.

Similarly, six IPS officers of 2011 batch are likely to be promoted as DIGs from the rank of SSPs.

Ambarkar Shriram Dinkar, who is ranked No. 1 in 2011 batch will be accorded proforma promotion as he is on deputation with the Government of India while six officers are expected to be promoted as DIGs as they are posted in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

They include Dr Vinod Kumar, SSP Jammu, Maqsood-ul-Zaman, Staff Officer to IG Traffic Jammu and Kashmir, Mubassir Latifi, Commandant Indian Reserve Police (IRP) 10th battalion headquartered at Anantnag, Shiv Kumar Sharma, Principal PTTI Vijaypur, Rashmi Wazir, Commandant IR 12th battalion headquartered at Nud, Samba and Rajeshwar Singh, SSP CID Headquarters.

Dr Vinod Kumar is Direct Recruit while five other IPS officers of 2011 batch are from State Police Services (SPS).

All of them are eligible for promotion on January 1, 2025 and are likely to be promoted as DIGs six months in advance in relaxation of the rules.

Eight posts of DIGs are lying vacant in Jammu and Kashmir.
As per the sources, since Jammu and Kashmir is now part of AGMUT cadre, the UT Government has to take consent of the Union Home Ministry for promotions. However, since Jammu and Kashmir is facing shortage of officers in the ranks of IGPs and DIGs, the permission is expected to be granted, they said.–(Daily Excelsior)
