| Friday | 15th March, 2019
The government will scrutinize the names only after end of the elections,” a home department official told TOI.Against the sanctioned strength of 188 IPS officers, Odisha has only 116 officers.
Normal deputation tenure of SP and ADG is four years while it is five years for DIG and IG.
Of the 116 officers, 27 are already on central deputation.
Vacancy of IPS officers is a big worry for us.
The police officers, who have proposed their names for central deputation, include three additional directors general (ADGs), one inspector general (IG), three deputy inspectors general (DIGs), five superintendents of police (SPs) and a deputy commissioner of police (DCP).Most of the IPS officers, who did not wish to be named or quoted, said they have applied for the central deputation as part of their career progression plan.
