New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Wednesday reviewed the working of the police division dealing with the IPS, recruitment, promotion and other career-related matters and expressed concern over the vacancies and other problems, an official statement said.
"Rajnath Singh expressed concern at the large number of vacancies, the delay in the empanelment of IPS (Indian Police Service) officers at senior levels as well as in the finalisation of the recruitment rules and notifications pending for different levels of officers in the police," the statement said.
The home minister mentioned that the procedure for finalisation of the recruitment rules in consultation with the department of personnel and training (DOPT) and the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) should be streamlined and simplified.
Rajnath Singh also expressed concern on the delays in routine administrative matters relating to IPS cadre as it demoralised the police force.
He also asked the ministry officials to find an early solution relating to the issues in the career planning and training of IPS officers at the earliest.
