New Delhi: The Centre has put over 1,000 Indian Police Service (IPS) officers under the scanner for non-performance over the years, an official said on Friday.
The official said performance of nearly 2,000 IPS officers was reviewed in the past three years.
The rule says that the Central government in consultation with the state government concerned may ask an IPS or IAS officer to retire in public interest by giving at least three months previous notice.
According to Home Ministry report as many as 3,972 IPS officers are working across the country against their total sanctioned strength of 4,940.
Worth mentioning that the Modi government has been reviewing the service record of the IPS officers to weed out the “deadwood” from the system.
