In a major development, the Delhi Police promoted 4,332 police personnel of the police force to various ranks. While 2,200 constables have been promoted to Head Constables, 810 Head Constables have been promoted to Assistant Sub-Inspectors.
Likewise, 1,450 Assistant Sub-Inspectors have been promoted to the post of Sub-Inspectors and 50 Sub-Inspectors have been promoted as Inspectors. Meanwhile, 2 Inspectors have been promoted to the post of Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs). In order to meet the prolonged pending demands of the police personnel for the improvement in their promotional prospects in the current financial year, Delhi Police Headquarters has issued promotions in almost all the ranks of
Delhi Police. Senior police officials said that this step has been taken to improve the morale and professional standards of the police force.
According to Praveen Ranjan, Joint Commissioner of Police, Headquarters: “There has been stagnation in the lower ranks of the police personnel for sometime and police constables, who have been putting in service for the past 27 to 28 years, had not got the opportunity to get their promotion to the ranks of Head Constables. Similarly, there was some stagnation in the other ranks as well. This was adversely affecting the morale of the police force.
The official also said: “The Commissioner of Police in a review meeting held with the top senior officers had passed directions to expedite promotions at all levels. In accordance with the directions of the Commissioner of Police, the Police Headquarters has undertaken a massive exercise of improving the promotional prospects of all the ranks.
