CRPF, Central Reserve Police Force

‘Indianmandarins’ has reliably learnt that as many as 236 new gazetted posts may be sanctioned for CRPF including posts in the rank of ADG, IG, DIG and AC. Reportedly, one new post may be created in ADG rank, nine in the rank of IG and 71 in the rank of DIG.

Presently, CRPF has three sanctioned posts of Special DG, three in the rank of additional DG, 34 in the rank of Inspector General and 174 in the rank of DIG.

In case DOPT and MHA act on their plan the sanctioned posts may reach up to four in the rank of Additional DG, 43 in the rank of Inspector General and 245 in the rank of Dy Inspector General.

The first-ever cadre review of country’s largest para-military forces has sparked hope and enthusiasm among IPS officers and CRPF cadres.
