Do not want to be a burden on the Govt: Senior IPS officer resigns

Senior Indian Police Service officer and director of Telangana State Police Academy Vinoy Kumar Singh (IPS:1987) on June 24 resigned saying that he does not want to be a ‘burden on the government’.
In his letter to Union home secretary, he said that he was seeking premature retirement from the service with effect from October 2, coinciding with the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. He had joined the police department as a regular recruit in the Telangana cadre with great hopes to change the police system but he thought he had failed in his ambitions.
“The Telangana government has also not been much impressed with my services. My advice to better the services in the government also did not cut much ice. Perhaps, my opinion was not considered worth it. I have my considered opinion that I should not be a burden on the government and the government, too, should not be burdened with worthless people,” Singh said.
The IPS officer said that after retirement, he would like to work for reforms among the people and service to Telangana. Sources said that Singh was upset at being denied promotion to the rank of Director-General of Police. On May 21, too, he had written a letter to the chief secretary requesting that he be promoted to the DGP rank in accordance with the seniority and eligibility.

Andhra HC revokes suspension of former state intelligence chief

Andhra Pradesh High Court on May 22 revoked the suspension of former state intelligence chief A B Venkateshwar Rao (IPS:1989:AP) and directed the state government to take him back into service.

The HC ruled on a petition filed by the DGP rank officer challenging his suspension by Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy government on February 8, 2020.

The HC also set aside the order of CAT which upheld the suspension of Rao. It ruled that the IPS officer be paid a full salary for the period of suspension. Rao was suspended for his alleged irregularities in the procurement of security equipment from an Israeli company during the TDP regime.

But the Jagan Mohan Reddy government alleged Rao of colluding with Israeli defence equipment manufacturing firm RT Inflatables Pvt Ltd to illegally award critical intelligence and surveillance contract to his son Chetan Sai Krishna, who is the CEO of Akasam Advanced Systems Pvt Ltd. The government also alleged Rao for willfully disclosing intelligence protocols and procedures of police to the foreign defence manufacturing firm.

AP & Telangana advised to sort out seniority matters of officers

By IndianMandarins 18 Apr 2019

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has directed the state reorganization wings of governments of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to sort out discrepancies in the seniority list of inspector of police (civil) at the earliest in consultation with the heads of departments of the two States.

 

In a letter sent by the MHA Under Secretary R Venkatesan, the two states were advised to settle the seniority dispute in respect of feeder grade and initiate the allocation of this category of officers as decided by the sub-committee constituted in this regard.

 

The development is seen as significant as it upholds the contention of Telangana that the revised seniority lists of Home Department employees, specifically inspectors (civil), DSPs (civil), additional SPs (civil) and SP (non-cadre) were against the agreed principles.

 

Earlier, Telangana, in a letter to the MHA, complained about the revised seniority lists published by the AP government recently. The letter pointed out that the list of various categories of employees was announced in “utter disregard” to the procedures agreed to by the two States as also the provisions specifically mentioned in Rule 34 of AP Subordinate Service Rules, 1996.

 

This letter added that though it was agreed that the procedure for preparing the seniority list in Telangana and apportionment of deputation posts was to be adopted for the sake of uniformity between the two States, it was surprising that the orders issued by AP in finalizing the seniority were not in accordance with the principles.

 

Responding to the complaint, the MHA said in its letter that the advisory committee had already approved re-initiation of allocation process based on the revised seniority lists through a note circulated in December last year and hence, the dispute should be settled accordingly. The two States should also make efforts to ensure disposal of the fresh court cases filed in the matter and submit a status report to the Union Ministry on the action taken on the issues concerned.
