Mon­ica Sharma CHANDI­GARH: Fi­nally, UT po­lice con­sta­bles are get­ting pro­mo­tions, with 75% set to be el­e­vated as head con­sta­bles. The po­lice have also ini­ti­ated the process of fill­ing the nine va­can­cies of deputy su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice (DSP). Of the nine, four are to be filled by of­fi­cers from out­side cadres.

Ac­cord­ing to the data avail­able, the UT po­lice sent a list of 680 cops in line of pro­mo­tion to the home depart­ment, and 480 have been cleared.

The UT IGP made the an­nounce­ment dur­ing a meet­ing on Tues­day. A se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer said the names have been cleared as per the Pun­jab Po­lice Rules (ap­pli­ca­ble to UT), which pro­vide for pro­mo­tion of 75% cops on the ba­sis of se­nior­ity.

The re­main­ing would be pro­moted on the ba­sis of a test. Most of the con­sta­bles have been work­ing on the same posts for over two decades.
