The chiefs of central armed police forces (CAPFs) and Assam Rifles have been given back their powers of deciding on postings and transfers of Special DGs and Additional DGs within their organisations, with Home Minister Rajnath Singh restoring these powers to them.

Since July 2013, the home ministry had been deciding matters of posting and transfer of such higher administrative grade posts in all CAPFs and Assam Rifles, while their DGs could only decide on transfers and posting up to the rank of Inspector General.
