Lt Governor approves regularisation/promotion of more than 550 officers at the level of SP and Dy.SP
9/23/2020 2:46:27 PM

JAMMU, SEPTEMBER 23: The Jammu and Kashmir Government has regularised/promoted more than 550 officers at the level of SP and Dy. SP, and granted/predated selection grade of Dy. SP in favour of more than 300 officers, including about 440 serving officers. This humongous exercise has finally paved the way for the smooth career progression of the Gazetted cadre of J&K Police, putting to rest more than three decades old seniority disputes and resultant litigations, which had restrained the long-pending regularisations/promotions and release of selection grade.

The Lt Governor Manoj Sinha observed that the J&K Police has been at the forefront to tackle the challenges posed by terrorism, displaying exemplary bravery and courage while at the same time, ensuring a secure environment for law-abiding citizens.

The JKP, however, has been besotted with seniority disputes over a long period of time. The Home Department has undertaken a comprehensive exercise, keeping in consideration the cardinal principles and judicial pronouncements, to address the issue that had been plaguing the Jammu & Kashmir Police (Gazetted) Service for the last three decades.

In the current round, more than 550 officers whose regularization/promotion was pending from different dates since 2007 at the level of SP and at the level of Dy. SP, have been regularized/promoted, as also selection grade of Dy. SP has been granted/predated in respect of more than 300 officers. This includes nearly 440 serving SPs and Dy. SPs. The retired officers will also benefit from pay fixation. These figures need to be seen in the backdrop of a total of 268 SP level and 575 Dy. SP level posts (including reserves). This exercise has led to the regularisation of all the officiating SPs and completing the groundwork for finalising the seniority list at the level of Dy. SP right up to the present date.

While congratulating the officers, the Lt Governor, Manoj Sinha lauded the effort of the Home Department and said the efficiency and good governance is the key to execute reform on vital fronts.

“We are proud of our Police Force. They have always shown the highest professionalism and the greatest perseverance in handling cross-border terrorism and making a concerted effort in maintaining peace in Jammu and Kashmir. I strongly feel that it’s our collective responsibility to address the issue of career progression, well-being of police, and welfare of their families”, the Lt Governor said.

In the first phase, in September 2019, 600 plus officers were given a specific date of regularisation as DySP/SP and 153 officers were promoted/ regularised as DySP. Also, SP level regularisation was finalized up to 2007 while in respect of Dy. SP, tentative seniority as in 2009 was notified.

This tentative seniority was finalised in February 2020, setting the stage for the next round of regularisation as well as for officiating promotion on 28.02.2020 of 73 officers as SP, which had been stalled since 2015. Further, despite COVID, officiating promotions of 22 officers to Dy. SP level were also effected on 18.05.2020.

The resolution of these seniority disputes will pave the way for the smooth career progression of the Gazetted cadre of police i.e. at the level of Dy. SP and SP.
