New Delhi: As many as 219 sub-inspectors were promoted as inspectors by the Delhi Police while 200 assistant sub-inspector have been also promoted as SIs.
Police said during the year, the force made progress on all the fronts but utmost achievement of the year was on the promotion front.
“Because of lack of adequate promotional avenues in the higher posts, there was a great deal of disenchantment in the lower functionaries who have been seeking time-bound promotion in their career,” it said in a statement.
“The police personnel were not able to achieve more than one or two regular promotions and many of them were getting it only towards the fag end of their career,” it noted.
In all, during the year 2016, Delhi Police has given promotions or next higher ranks to 23,236 police personnel of different cadres.
