dbo:abstract
  • The Indian Police Service (IPS) is one of the three All India Services as envisaged in the Constitution of India. It replaced the Indian Imperial Police in 1948, a year after India became independent from the United Kingdom. Along with the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and the Indian Forest Service (IFS), the IPS is one of the three All India Services — its officers can be employed by both the Union Government and the individual States. The service was primarily envisaged to command and provide leadership to state police forces and the union territories. However, they have been commanding Central Armed Police Forces (BSF, SSB, CRPF, CISF, & ITBP) as well on account of non-availability of cadre officers for the senior posts. At the time of formation of Central armed Police Forces, direct Cadre Officers were few in numbers and were holding entry level rank in all the CAPFs, so IPS officers were borrowed on deputation from state police to man these forces at senior ranks but over a period of time the size of the cadre officers of Central armed Police Force has grown manifold and now, cadre officers are holding even posts of ADGs. According to the latest information of Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, there are 14,000 cadre officers in Central Armed Police Force (CAPFs). On February 5th ,2019, the Supreme court of India in its historical judgement declared cadre officers of all the Central Armed Police Force as member of 'Organised Group A Service' (OGAS), therefore, brought them on par with member of any other Group A organised services like; IAS, IPS,IFS,IRS etc. This judgement enabled cadre officers of CAPFs' to hold senior posts of Central Armed Police Force and it's likely that in ensuing days the command of Central armed Police Force will be transferred into the hands of CAPFs' cadre officers. The Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D) is responsible for research and development of the police force in India. (en)
