UPSC to select panel for AP DGP this week

By IndianMandarins- 15 Jul 2019


The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has the choice of forming a panel of three officers for the posts of AP DGP from a list of six forwarded by the AP government.


Reportedly, the names of the following officers appear in the state government list: VSK Kaumudi (DG, BPR&D); Gautam Sawang, R P Thakur (Commissioner, printing and stationery), (all from the 1986 batch), T.A. Tripathi, N.V. Surendra Babu and A.R. Anuradha of the 1987 batch.


The list was prepared in accordance with the SC guidelines to complete the formality, even though the state government has already appointed Sawang as the DGP. The reason for Sawang's ad hoc appointment till the formality is complete is triggered by reports that the seniormost 1986 batch IPS officer Kaumudi may be not inclined to return from the central deputation.


Since Thakur invited a panoply of allegations during the elections and accused of falsely implicating a number of government employees in ACB cases, it may be a surprise if his name is at all recommended by the UPSC for consideration as state DGP.
