Ranchi: Many IPS posts are vacant in Jharkhand and at the same time 22 IPS are kept waiting for posting. The officers waiting for posting have no work, and at the same time, these officers are not even getting a salary, which is also causing problems.
Those IPS who are waiting for posting – Chandan Jha, Anjani Jha, Prabhat Kumar, Amit Renu, Anand Prakash, Amber Lakra, Subhash Chandra Jat, Anuranjan Kispotta, Kumar Gaurav, Manoj Swargiyari R Ramkumar, Ehtesham Vakariv, Shubhanshu Jain and Mukesh Lunayat.
Apart from this, eight officers who became IPS after getting a promotion from DSP are also waiting for posting in SP rank. Which includes – Arvind Kumar Singh, Sadiq Anwar Rizvi, Vikas Kumar Pandey, Vijay Ashish Kujur, Ajay Kumar Sinha, Sahdev Sao, Amit Kumar Singh and Mukesh Kumar.
Jharkhand government has formed new battalions with the funds received from the Centre. But no arrangements have been made to ensure smooth functioning of them. Even the commandant is not posted in the battalion.
Presently the situation is that out of 21 battalions of JAP, IRB, SIRB and SISF in Jharkhand, 15 posts are vacant and under charge. In which four posts of JAP, three of IRB, two of SIRB and one battalion of SISF are vacant.
Apart from this, one battalion of JAP and four battalions of IRB are in charge. A total of 18 battalions of JAP and IRB personnel have been deployed at more than 115 pickets made in Naxal-affected areas. Jharkhand IRB has been formed to conduct operations against Naxalites.
The Central Government has given the entire amount for the formation of its five battalions so that the dependence on paramilitary forces can be reduced in the ongoing fight against Naxalites.
Due to the absence of commandants in the battalions, the work of inspection of pickets has stopped. The inspection data being prepared at the pickets is mostly being prepared on paper. According to the rules, the Commandant has to inspect every picket once a year and also has to spend the night there.
