The above police departments have to prepare a report, which will be filed to the Union Home Ministry before the ministry takes a call on it.

“Forces that come under the Union Home Ministry have started reviewing the strength of ADGs and above rank officials as various senior IPS officers are keen to join central forces. To accommodate the heavy flow of senior rank officers, organisations have been asked review their strength. Every Central Armed Police Force will send their requirement and proposal and the MHA will take a final call on the demands of forces,” a Special Director General rank official said.

According to sources, various organisations will get two to three senior officials. This step will be a breather for senior rank IPS officers who are trying hard to leave the states for central deputation.

For instance, the CISF will be asking for two more ADG rank officials. Currently, there are only two ADG rank official in the organisation.

There is a buzz that the Delhi Police will have three more special commissioners for law and order. There are nine Special CP rank official who are equivalent to the ADG.

“Delhi Police will probably having three special commissioners for law and order, besides one more addition in senior rank in Delhi Police,” a senior rank official in the MHA said.

Similarly, the CISF, which has almost double the strength of Delhi Police with about 1,45,000 staff, will get two ADGs for two sectors.

“The CISF will get two ADGs, one will be ADG north sector and another will be ADG south sector. Currently, there is only one ADG heading airport sector and ADG headquarters was recently given to 1983 batch IPS Rajiv Rai Bhatnagar,” sources said.

Apart from big forces, small forces like SSB will get one more ADG who will be heading three Inspector General (IG) rank officers. Currently, there are only one ADG and one DG.

“This procedure of expansion of central forces will take almost months as organisations have to give their requirement after conducting a review. A report will then be submitted to the Union Home Ministry. Ranks will be introduced after Union Home Ministry ’s approval,” sources said.
