Chandigarh:

The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) empanelment committee’s proceedings of the February 4 meeting are silent on why two senior IPS officers were kept out of the DGP probables’ panel sent to the state government.


On February 4, UPSC had recommended a panel of three 1987-batch IPS officers – Dinkar Gupta, M K Tiwari, V K Bhawra – to the Punjab government for picking one of them as the Punjab Police chief. It dropped 1985-batch officer Mohammad Mustafa and 1986-batch officer Siddharth Chattopadhyaya from the panel. The empanelment committee’s meeting proceedings do not mention any reason for the decsion of leaving the two senior most cops out of the panel of three.

Aggrieved by UPSC’s decision, Mustafa has already announced plans of approaching the Supreme Court. “The state government can pick whosoever it likes out of the three names. I have a problem with UPSC for leaving out my name of the panel of three it sent to the state government,” he had said.

Gupta took over as new DGP on Friday after being picked by chief minister Amarinder Singh. The empanelment committee, chaired by UPSC member Manoj Soni, included special secretary of Union home ministry Satpal Chouhan, Punjab chief secretary Karan Avtar Singh, then Punjab DGP Suresh Arora and director general of Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) Kumar Rajesh Chandra.

The meeting’s proceedings sent to the state government on February 6, mention that the Punjab government had forwarded names of nine DGP rank officers, including Mustafa and Chattopadhyaya, and three ADGP rank officers to the UPSC for consideration. “As intimated by the government of Punjab, it was brought to the notice of the committee that (i) no disciplinary/ criminal proceedings are pending against any of the eligible officers; (ii) no penalties have been imposed on any of the eligible officers; (iii) the state government has certified integrity in respect of all officers; (iv) no adverse remarks are noticed in the ACRs/ APARs,” read minutes of the meeting.

“The committee took into consideration the ACRs/ APARs of the eligible officers for the last 10 years, up to the year 2017-18, while assessing the suitability of the officers on the parameter of assessment of service records,” it reads, adding, “The committee went through the records and made their assessment after deliberating on the grading of the officer as indicated in the various columns recorded by the reporting officer/reviewing officer/accepting authority in the ACRs/APARs for different years and then finally arrived at the grading to be assigned in respect of those years.”

It is recorded in the minutes, “The committee also took note of... appreciation for the meritorious work done by the concerned officers. Only those officers who were assessed by the committee as at least “Very Good” for each of the preceding 10 years were considered for inclusion in the panel
