Process of appointment of new DGP started in Haryana

Amid demands by Haryana DGP Manoj Yadav for his premature repatriation to the Intelligence Bureau (IB), state home minister Anil Vij asked the home department to send a panel of names to the UPSC for appointment as his replacement. Amid the ongoing tussle with Vij, the Director General of Police has sought repatriation citing career considerations and family requirements.

Vij said Yadav’s application to relieve him from the post has been accepted and he has been asked to continue in the post till a fresh appointment is made. Vij asked the Home Secretary to send a panel of Indian Police Service officers who have completed 30 years of service to the Union Public Service Commission for selection of the new DGP.

Despite the home minister’s reservation, DGP Yadav, who was due to return on central deputation in March, got a one-year extension to remain in the state. The state had sought an extension of his term by one year. On deputation from the IB to his parent cadre, Yadav was appointed for a two-year tenure commencing in February 2019.
