Delhi Police: UT cadre IPS officers from NE elude important field postings?

North East claims to have a louder voice in New Delhi in the NaMo regime because of the emphasis of the NaMo Govt on ‘Act East policy’. To a bigger extent the assumption is closer to the reality as well.

On various developmental fronts, NE has got much more importance but while interacting with Indianmandarins several members of North East residing in New Delhi underlined an interesting administrative aspect which often goes un-noticed in the echelons of power.

When Indianmandarins started digging out information it was found that approx 10 senior UT cadre IPS officers are serving in Delhi Police but hardly any of them get important assignment in field operations. Rather, most of them are employed/deployed in Training, VIP Security, Delhi Armed Police which are considered less important.

In police administration, assignments like Crime, Law & Order, Economic Offence Wing, Licencing and Traffic are considered to be more important but none of the officers from NE are presently deployed in these areas. Rather, going by the data it appears that there has been a long practice of ignoring them for ‘so-called main postings’ like L&o, Crime, EoW etc.

For instance the list goes as follows;

  1. P N Khirmey (IPS:2004:UT)- DIG, Delhi Armed Police
  2. M N Masuvi- DIG, Training
  3. Michi Paku (IPS:2004:UT)- DIG, PTC Training
  4. Hibu Tamang (IPS:2004:UT)- DCP, Security
  5. Tushar Taba (IPS:2002:UT)- DIG, Security
  6. C K Mein (IPS:2004:UT)- DIG Security (Additional CP, PM Security)
  7. Robin Hibu (IPS:1993:UT)- Special Commissioner of Police, Delhi Armed Police. He served as DCP West for 2.5 years during Dr Paul’s tenure as CP.
  8. David Lalrinsanga (IPS:1995:UT)- Presently in Delhi Police HQ earlier served  for more than four years in VIP Traffic
  9. Kimey Kaming (IPS:UT)- Earlier served in Delhi Armed Police is now in Arunachal Pradesh Police HQs as DIG (Training)
  10. Apurva Bithin (IPS:UT)- DIG Training

Those who underlined these aspect also said that even in the name of modern HR practices and perception management or for the sake of giving due importance to Act East policy, IPS officers belonging to North East should have been given a little more space in a few important field postings which would have sent out messages across.

But unfortunately, while interacting with Indianmandrins, they forgot to underline several examples wherein many NE States often show less appetite for giving important field postings to IAS, IFoS and IPS officer’s native of outside NE Region.

Terming the cases as examples of discrimination would certainly be the over simplification of facts but this something which draws attention.

Change of Delhi CS ruled out; Mrs Ray faces tough time ahead?

Immediately after the abrupt repatriation of Mrs Reena Ray (IAS:1984:UT), Secretary, Department of School Education under Union HRD Ministry, last week, it was speculated that she may be made Delhi Chief Secretary vice Vijay Kumar Dev (IAS:1987:UT). Indianmandarins explored the prospect with several top officials and it is learnt that MHA might not destabilise the Delhi administration.

It may be underlined that the incumbent Delhi CS, presently holding the additional charge of NDMC chairman as well, had earlier served as Chief Electoral Officer in Delhi. Having well versed with the Delhi affairs, the NaMo administration may not find it much productive to destabilise the Delhi administration ahead of Delhi Assembly elections.

In addition to the reasons for abrupt unceremonious repatriation of Mrs Ray, which Indian Express broke first, there were other factors too which went against her abrupt unceremonious repatriation just 18 months ahead of retirement. If well-placed sources are to be believed differences and bitterness with juniors under her department would have added to her predicament and made her chances bleak to become Delhi’s next CS.

Lavish lunch at CM residence; unsettled bills still haunts power corridors

By IndianMandarins 19 Sep 2018

The issue of luncheon meet at the residence of chief minister Arwind Kejriwal’s residence in February 2016 has not been resolved till date. The occasion was luncheon meet on completion of Kejriwal’s one year in office. Each thali served at the lunch was worth Rs ten thousand. And the total cost of the luncheon meet was enormous. The Directorate of Information and Publicity had asked DTTDC to arrange the lunch. The DTTDC engaged the services of a five-star hotel to serve the lunch. The hotel raised its bill.


According to Delhi government rules, chief minister can host a lunch and the bills can be paid at the rate of Rs 1200. The gap of government approved rate of Rs 1200 and the bill raised by the DTTDC at the rate of Rs ten thousand per plate is huge.


How to approve this file is a big issue. Chief Secretary took a meeting on this issue nearly one month ago but the file is still pending. The five-star hotel is consistently approaching for payment but the chief minister’s office or the DTTDC has no answer.
