Ramachandran, a 1994-batch officer of Indian Police Service, had recently returned from the North Eastern Police Academy and was yet to get a posting in the IB.

She is a joint director-level officer. The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) has approved the proposal of the Ministry of Home Affairs for repatriation of Ramachandran to her cadre with immediate effect under the provision of para 6.5 of IPS tenure policy, the Personnel Ministry order said.

The relevant para has provision for repatriation of an officer “when the professional utility of a hard-core officer may visibly decline or when, for acute administrative reasons”.

An officer once inducted into the “hard-core” would continue in the IB and would not be repatriated to his/her parent state cadre, according to the policy, until “when the professional utility of a hard-core officer may visibly decline or when, for acute administrative reasons, it may be necessary to repatriate him/her to the State cadre”.

Such cases shall be examined by a committee comprising the Home Secretary, Secretary (Personnel) and the IB Director and its recommendations will be submitted for approval of the ACC, the para 6.5 reads.

Sources close to the officer said she had wanted to return to her cadre state. Her husband is posted as the Additional Director General of Police in Haryana.
