UP: There may be a major reshuffle in the police department before the assembly elections, changes in the screening process are being considered

In Uttar Pradesh assembly elections are to be held next year, in such a situation there may be a reshuffle in the police department. On Sunday, a police official said that there is a possibility of change in the screening process for police inspectors (inspectors) and sub-inspectors (sub-inspectors). The official said this reconsideration is being done as some senior police officers feel that the existing screening norms will affect the distribution of police force across the state and routine police work ahead of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.
The official said that discussions are going on between the top officials regarding the transfer of sub-inspectors and inspectors from one assembly constituency to another. He said that the present order is for the transfer of Inspectors and Sub Inspectors from one district to another if they complete three years of their posting by March 2022.

“Only those police personnel are likely to be transferred to other districts against whom any complaint or investigation is pending or there have been complaints related to election duty in the past. He also said that amendments to the screening process are being discussed as the primary screening suggested that around 90 percent of the police personnel in every district of the state would be New Police if the existing criteria are implemented. This can lead to a major problem in regular policing as well as in the election process.

Senior police officials said that earlier the state government had constituted two committees to examine officers from the rank of sub-inspector to ASP posted in different districts. A committee headed by Additional Director General (Law and Order) Prashant Kumar while two other members will screen the inspectors and SI. The purpose of this screening committee is to make a list of police personnel who have been posted in a district for three or more years as well as those against whom inquiries and complaints are pending. At the same time, policemen with alleged tainted images will be removed from the districts (of their present posting). Apart from this, another three-member screening committee headed by Director General (Intelligence) DS Chauhan will screen ASP and Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSPs) on similar lines.
