Maharashtra: Hemant Nagrale gets additional charge of DGP
Jaiswal turned over the charge to Nagrale on Thursday at the DGP office on the very first floor of the state police head office in Colaba.
HEMANT NAGRALE, a 1987- batch IPS officer, was on Thursday offered an added fee as the Director General of Authorities (DGP), Maharashtra. The Maha Vikas Aghadi federal government relieved Subodh Jaiswal, a 1985- batch IPS officer, who headed the state police from February 2019, after he was appointed as DG CISF by the central government on December 30.
Though Nagrale (58) has been provided an added fee, he is most likely to be officially made the state DGP once the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) panel clears his appointment, based on treatment. Nagrale’s senior, Sanjay Pandey, a 1986- batch officer, was the frontrunner, but was passed over.
Jaiswal handed over the charge to Nagrale on Thursday at the DGP office on the first floor of the state police headquarters in Colaba.
An order issued by the state federal government on Thursday verified that Nagrale had actually been provided the additional charge of the state DGP post as Jaiswal was relieved to go on main deputation.
Nagrale, who had functioned as the Navi Mumbai cops commissioner, played a vital part in transferring those injured in the 26/11 terror attacks of Mumbai in 2008 to healthcare facilities. In October 2018, he rose to the DG (legal & technical) rank, and was provided the obligation of taking care of the forensic science laboratories across the state.
According To Supreme Court guidelines, for the post of DGP, the state government needs to send out a list of officers of the DG rank to UPSC. A three-member UPSC committee then picks 3 names depending on seniority and merit and sends it to the state government for consideration. The government finally chooses from the advised names.
A Home department authorities stated that normally names of officers are sent out in advance when the DGP will retire. Since in this case, the DGP went on main deputation, the state federal government is now in the procedure of sending out names of officers to UPSC. Sources stated Nagrale’s name is more than likely to include in the list of 3 the UPSC committee will send out to the state. “Simply to guarantee we are not caught off-guard in case UPSC does not include Nagrale in the panel of three names, he has actually just been provided added fee. When his name figures in the list, which it is likely to as he is the second seniormost officer, he will be formally made the DGP,” a House department authorities said.
He included that the service charge will likewise make sure that there is no fear of lawsuits by other aspirant officers, who might have felt snubbed by the federal government.
Earlier when Jaiswal, who had been published with the Research study & Analysis Wing and was also the Mumbai cops commissioner, was published as state DGP, it was believed that officers of the right away following batches would no longer be in contention to lead the state cops as Jaiswal retires in 2022.
Nevertheless, Jaiswal’s main deputation opened the field to his instant junior officers. Jaiswal’s deputation followed months of anxious relations between him and the state federal government over the transfer of IPS officers, specifically after his refusal to sign off on a set of transfers in 2015.
