Reportedly, MHA has prepared the dossier and may shortly move it to Cabinet Secretariat which would further take over a month to complete the process. If some well-placed sources are to be believed as many as 36 IPS officer would be empanelled to be posted as Additional Director General on Govt of India by the first week of November.
