No IPS officer from J&K among 26 empanelled as DGP/DGP equivalent level
Ahmed Ali FayyazSRINAGAR: Two of the 1986-batch IPS officers, namely Dr Shesh Pal Vaid and Navin Agarwal, who respectively figure at number one and number two in all J&K cadre IPS officers, have missed their empanelment in Government of India as Director General of Police and DGP equivalent level even as the Appointments Committee of the Union Cabinet today approved empanelment of 12 IPS officers of 1986 batch as DGP and DGP equivalent level and 14 more of the same batch as DGP equivalent level in the Centre. Those empanelled as DGP /DGP equivalent level include three IPS officers of West Bengal cadre, two of UP cadre, one each from Uttarakhand, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, Gujarat, Bihar and Andhra Pradesh. In addition to them, 14 IPS officers of 1986 batch have been empanelled as DGP equivalent level who cannot be posted as heads of a force but can be posted as Special DGPs in BSF, CRPF and other Central Police and paramilitary forces. After today’s process of empanelment, Dr Vaid, who is reaching superannuation on October 31 this year is now unlikely to get empanelled as DG in Centre. However, number two in the J&K IPS seniority list, Navin Agarwal has two more chances of empanelment as the age is on his side and he is scheduled to retire on July 31, 2021. Empanelment as DGP/DGP equivalent level and DG equivalent level of the IPS officers of batch 1987 will take place in June next year. In that competition, J&K will have Navin Agarwal (1986) and V.K. Singh, S.M. Sahai and Dilbag Singh, all 1987 batch. Dr Vaid is currently functioning on the ex-cadre post of Transport Commissioner in Government of Jammu and Kashmir while as Navin Agarwal has been on Central deputation and posted as Director General (Joint Secretary level) in National Anti Doping Agency (NADA), Department of Youth Affairs & Sports since June 22, 2016. V.K. Singh is Director General of Prisons holding additional charge of DG Fire and Emergency Services in Government of Jammu and Kashmir. S.M. Sahai is on Central deputation and posted as Joint Secretary in National Security Council Secretariat (NSCS) since October 21, 2016. Dilbag Singh has been posted as DGP J&K since October 31, 2018.
Dr Vaid, who remained posted as DGP J&K Police and Dilbag Singh both stand placed in the highest level i.e. Level 17 of the revised pay scale (Rs 2,25,000) in Jammu and Kashmir.
