A high level meeting is likely to take place on July 29 where Senior Officers from Centre and UT to be present in the meeting to finalize induction of JKPS officers into IPS.

This will be for the first time that after a decade JKPS officers will be inducted into the IPS.

The final decision will depend on the high-level Panel that how many JKPS officers will be considered for induction into IPS. It is likely that 28 in-service JKPS officers may be inducted along with a few who have already retired from the service. They could be treated as inducted into the IPS from 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 while the years of allotment could start from 2007 and last till 2010 but it depends on committee for final decision.

This was part of UPA Government’s special formula for Jammu and Kashmir under which 50 percent posts each were reserved for Regular Recruits and SPS officers.
