The IPS Officers’ Association of Gujarat has decided to make a representation before Chief Minister Anandi Patel to expedite pending promotions and request the state government to look into instructions given by the state Home department and DGP’s office to probe anonymous applications.
Promotions for the 1986 batch of IPS officers, including controversial police officer Satish Verma, have been held up for the past three-and-a-half years.
The association met on Monday to discuss this and various other issues, including representations made by several police officers to a top-level officer or bureaucrat of the Home department.
The association mainly discussed burning issues of promotion of the 1986 IPS batch who haven’t got promotions to the rank of additional DGP, reportedly because of Verma’s run in with the state government in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case.
The other officers in this batch awaiting promotions to the level of Additional DGP are Vinod Mall, Satish Sharma, E Radhkrishnan and Keshav Kumar, even as their batch mates outside Gujarat have become additional DGPs three years ago. This batch is suffering a loss of Rs 23,000 to 25,000 per month in their salaries due to the freeze.

One of the board members said, “From this batch, it’s only the officers from Gujarat who are still awaiting promotions and losing out on money, benefits, etc. We have asked the government to compulsorily ask the state committees to meet every year and regularly work on the promotion issues.”
A similar issue was faced by the 1992 IPS batch. Later, the government promoted the batch in October 2013 to the rank of the IGP. Only Rahul Sharma was left out. Sharma had, in 2004, submitted evidence against the government in the Naroda Patiya and Gulberg Society cases.
