No promotion to the post of DGP if an IPS has less than 6 months service: SC
New Delhi, Mar.13 (HS): The Supreme Court (SC) has changed its order regarding the appointment of DGP in the States. Now for the promotion to the post of DGP an IPS must have at least six months service to his superannuation. Further the SC also clarified that the names of those IPS whose retirement has less than six months will not be considered for the appointment of DGP in a State. It is notable that DGP of a State has a fixed tenure of two years and if the state government appoints an IPS officer who is going to retire soon, the officer by such appointment as DGP gets a fixed tenure of two years. On July 3, 2018, the Supreme Court said that three months before the DGP''s vacancy, the state governments will send the list of senior IPS officers to the UPSC. State governments will appoint DGP of the same officer whose tenure will be more than two years. The court further said that our decisions about this are being misused by state governments. In 2006, the Supreme Court had said that the DGP''s tenure would be at least for two years. Hindusthan Samachar/Ashwani/Pramod \
