J&K faces severe shortage at DIG rank officers; over a dozen of SSPs may officiate as DIGs


(G.N.S) dt. 18


The Government has reportedly decided to promote 13 SSPs as officiating DIGs without completion of their mandatory service of 14 years as IPS officer to fill up the posts and overcome shortage of officers at this level. The rare situation arises in view of shortage of DIGs in Jammu and Kashmir with 20 vacancies against the sanctioned posts of 29.
In all likelihood, three from 2009 batch officers and ten from 2010 batch officers may be promoted as officiating DIGs. However, only ten of them will be available for posting in Jammu and Kashmir as three others are on Central deputation.

Earlier also, the Government had promoted SSPs as officiating DIGs to fill up the vacancies.
Three IPS officers in the rank of DIG are on Central deputation including Amit Kumar, Tejinder Singh and Abdul Jabbar.
Ten IPS officers of 2010 batch, who are likely to be promoted as DIGs, included: Rayees Mohammad Bhat, SSP Baramulla, Pandey Rajiv Omprakash, SSP NIA Jammu, Sridhar Patil, AIG Technical Headquarters, Dr Ajeet Singh, SSP CID Cell New Delhi, Altaf Ahmed Khan, SSP CID CI Kashmir, Haseeb-ur-Rehman, Commandant SDRF Ist battalion, Vikas Gupta, Officer-on-Special Duty (OSD) to Prisons Department, Abdul Qayoom, Commandant Jammu and Kashmir Armed Police (JKAP), Nisha Nathyal, Commandant SDRF 2nd battalion and Javid Iqbal Matoo, AIG Building Police Headquarters.

Three IPS officers of 2009 batch, who are set to be promoted as DIGs, included: Imtiaz Ismail Parray, Commandant IRP 8th battalion, Shailendra Mishra and Rahul Malik.
It may be underlined that the 2009 batch of IPS officers is being promoted after 13 years of services and 2010 batch after 12 years of services, but they will be promoted as officiating DIGs and will be confirmed as DIGs after they complete 14 years of services.
