6 IPS officers coming back to UP from Central deputation
Lucknow: A list of IPS officers of the state’s bureaucracy to be sent on central deputation have been finally approved by Uttar Pradesh government, paving way for more than half a dozen IPS officers of the police department to go on Central deputation. At the same time, 6 officers ranging from rank of SP to ADG who were on Central deputation will also be returning to original cadre of Uttar Pradesh after their central deputation period gets over this year.
Presently there are 41 IPS (5 DG rank, 14 ADG rank, and others belong to SP, DIG and IG rank) officers of the state’s cadre on central deputation. There are currently more than 12 officers who have been on Central deputation for more than 5 years and might soon return to their home cadre as their Central deputation period will soon expire.
The officers who might return to their home cadre if their Central deputation period is not extended include IPS Rajeev Ranjan Verma, IPS Anand Swarup Prakash, IPS G Mutha Ashok Jain, IPS Ajay Kumar Mishra, IPS Happy Guptan, IPS Neha Pandey and IPS Gaurav Singh. The number of officers Uttar Pradesh can send on central deputation stands at 171 (previously 112) and even though many IPS officers want to be sent on central deputation, the state government has been denying the required permission which is becoming a cause of displeasure among such officers.
The state government is reluctant on sending its IPS officers on central deputation is due to the current law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh and being most populous state of the country needs all hands it has to safeguard its own law and order
