One of the guidelines is that the Inspectors on first promotion to the rank of D.S.P. shall be posted to Greyhounds, APSP Bns., CID, Intelligence, ACB, Training Institutions and Railways only. After completion of their tenure of minimum 2 years in Grey Hounds, APSP Bns., CID, Intelligence, Railways and Training Institutions, their cases for transfer to Law & Order Sub-Divisions will be considered.
2. In view of the following practical problems involved with the above guidelines, the Director General of Police, A.P., Hyderabad, has requested the Government to amend the 2 year tenure of working in Specialized Units in rank of D.S.P. prescribed vide G.O.Ms.No.116, Home (Pol.E) Department, dated 15.5.2000, to one year.
i. Govt. vide G.O.Ms.No.116, Home (Pol.E) Department, dated 15.5.2000 has already fixed a tenure of 2 years as Inspector of Police in any of the Specialized Units within the Department or outside the Department on deputation/tenure other than Law & Order, Crime/Traffic Stations in the Districts/Units before being considered for promotion to the post of D.S.P.
ii. Including the above period, one is supposed to work for 4 years (ie., 2 years as Inspector and 2 years as D.S.P.) in Specialized Units.
iii. In view of the permission of the Government vide G.O.Ms. No.77, Home (Ser.I) Department, dated 28.3.2011 that preparation of panel of Deputy Superintendents of Police fit for promotion as Addl. Superintendent of Police excepting for not having completed five years of minimum service (3 ½ years), only 1 ½ year will remain to work in Law & Order having worked 2 years in Specialized Units.
iv. Thereby, not only they are having sufficient experience in Law & Order before becoming Addl. S.P. but also not in the interest of the Department.
v. Besides this, if an SDPO is found not suitable to work there, much difficulty being experienced to post a suitable officer in view of shortage of Deputy Superintendents of Police having completed two years in specialized units.
vi. Moreover, with this existing condition of 2 years most of the promoted Deputy Superintendents of Police are not getting chance of working in Sub Divisions to gain experience in Law & Order by being deprived of their turn as the number of sub divisions are limited.
3. The Director General of Police, A.P., Hyderabad, has therefore, requested the Government to amend the 2 year tenure of working in Specialized Units in the rank of D.S.P. prescribed vide G.O.Ms.No.116, Home (Pol.E) Department, dated 15.5.2000 to one year, so that all the Deputy Superintendents of Police working in the Department will have an experience in Law & Order and would be in the interest of the Department as stated above.
4. After careful consideration of the matter, the Government accept the proposals of the D.G.P., and accordingly hereby reduce the minimum tenure period of 2 years as prescribed in G.O.Ms.No.116, Home (Pol.E) Department, dated 15.5.2000, to one year to work in specialized units of Greyhounds, APSP Bns., CID, Intelligence, ACB, Training Institutions and Railways, in respect of Inspectors of Police on first promotion to the rank of Deputy Superintendent of Police.
