February seems to be a lucky month for IPS officers as many coveted posts in the central government have opened up for posting. Already, in the first week, many fresh appointments in the DG rank have been done including BSF, CRPF, SSB & NCRB in addition to the appointment of Special Secretary (Internal Security).
National Police Academy chief Ms Aruna M Bahuguna (IPS:1979:AP), Railway Protection Force chief R R Verma (IPS:1978:BH) and Delhi Police chief B S Bassi (IPS:1978:UT) are set to retire on February 29. BPR&D and Civil Defence are also running headless for months whereas the appointment process of CEO National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID) is under way. So there are at least six more new postings would be available this month-end.
