Ex-BSF ADG Sood and his band of disgruntled brothers spreading lies against IGP Kashmir

A section of serving and ex-CAPF cadre officers have been writing against the IPS presence in CAPFs through a sustained negative campaign in media.

Text Size:

In an article in ThePrint, a retired additional director general of the Border Security Force, Sanjiv Krishan Sood, parroted a line he has been saying ever since he hung up his boots. In his view, IPS officers are unfit to lead the Central Armed Police Forces.

This time, he used the controversy surrounding the remarks allegedly made by the inspector general of police (IGP) Kashmir Zone Vijay Kumar at a closed door meeting about the working of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in the Kashmir Valley. With a self-righteous indignation that barely disguises his ignorance of the larger perspective, Sood continues to push his agenda of running down the Indian Police Service (IPS), questioning it not just for its leadership role in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF), but in other police organisations too.

Malicious campaign

It is not just Sood. Ever since a signal communication dated 29 April by a CRPF commanding officer was leaked on 8 May, ahead of a crucial meeting on Kashmir chaired by the National Security Adviser Ajit Doval on 9 May, a section of serving and retired CAPF officers have taken to social media, under real and assumed names, to heap abuse and indignation against the IPS leadership.

Some of their remarks are downright obnoxious and reveal the extremely poor levels of discipline and decorum that prevail among this disgruntled section of the CAPF cadre. Given that IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar has won all his gallantry medals during his service with J&K Police, and not with the CRPF, the demand by Sood that he return his medals, reveals an ignorant mindset.

A section of serving and ex-CAPF cadre officers have been writing against the IPS presence in CAPFs for a while now. Their aim is clear: to totally oust the IPS from the CAPFs through a sustained negative campaign in the media.

This group has created a huge corpus through donations by CAPF officers that is being funnelled through NGOs into litigation against the IPS? They are also lobbying the government for their cause, and wherever possible, creating controversies involving IPS officers and the CAPFs that are completely at variance with the facts. The latest controversy involving Vijay Kumar and the CRPF is a part of that game.

Why IGP Kashmir is not at fault

We need to understand the architecture of the security grid in Kashmir. The 15 Corps of the Indian Army has overall responsibility for the Line of Control and the BSF works under its operational control. In the hinterland, the Jammu Kashmir Police, represented by the Kashmir Zonal IG is the nodal agency for all counter-terrorist operations. While the Rashtriya Rifles of the Indian Army and the CRPF do have the mandate to carry out independent operations, in practice they work in close cooperation with the J&K Police, and the IG Kashmir is the officer responsible for coordinating operations.

Given this framework, if in a closed door meeting on 29 April, the IG Kashmir pointed out some operational lapses—3 soldiers of CRPF’s 179 Battalion were killed in Sopore on 18 April–he was not only exercising his lawful authority, but also doing his duty.

Strangely enough, the CO of 53 Battalion, which had nothing to do with the incident, sent a letter, complaining about this reprimand to his superiors in the CRPF.

On 4 May, the 92nd Battalion of the CRPF lost three men and two weapons in another gunbattle with the millitants in Handwara.

This saga of wounded pride would be more credible if any of the honourable COs of the CRPF had protested at the meeting before DGP J&K Dilbag Singh, or shown the courage and the ingenuity to identify the militants who killed CRPF personnel, and brought them to justice. But, their wounded pride is too busy attacking IGP Kashmir and the IPS.

An outrageous claim

It is an outrageous lie to claim, as Sood does, that the J&K Police does not appreciate the contributions of the CRPF and other CAPFs. Last year, of the 125-odd medals that the CRPF was awarded for gallantry, 95 were won in J&K. And more than 75 of these were in joint operations with the J&K Police. In contrast, the largest deployment of the CRPF continues to be in the Left Wing Extremism affected theatre, where both operational achievements and gallantry medals are in short supply. So to accuse IG Kashmir and J&K Police of being biased against the CRPF, is both full of malice and demonstrably false. Instead of mounting a vicious campaign against a decorated IPS officer, the disgruntled elements in the CAPF cadre, and especially the CRPF, must indulge in some serious introspection.

Sood has taken an isolated episode and twisted it to suit his anti-IPS agenda. It is not an innocent act. In the context of Kashmir, it amounts to inciting disaffection in the forces, and I do hope that he faces the legal consequences of his disgraceful action.

Serving DGs of the CAPFs must decide if they want to continue being indifferent to this naked display of insubordination and self-interest and thus embolden these unscrupulous elements abusing the IPS and the government on social media, or take decisive action against them. Their continued silence will have damaging consequences for the discipline and morale of all these forces.

Understanding the rot within

Once we understand the bizarre and totally false sense of outrage built around this non-issue, we can appreciate this episode in the larger context of the declared aims of Sood and his band of disgruntled brothers.

This behaviour by the dissatisfied elements in the CAPF cadre is guided by the belief that the interests of the CAPFs and their organisational objectives in the service of the nation should only be guided by the career aspirations of their cadre. Nothing else matters to them. The constitutional imperatives of federalism do not matter. The design of the All India Services that dictates the recruitment and deputation profile of the IPS, does not matter. The demonstrably superior quality of the candidates that qualify for the Civil Services does not matter. Their own history–all of them have been created and nurtured by generations of distinguished IP/IPS officers–does not matter.

Instead, Sood and his ilk are peddling a narrative based on outright, self-serving lies. Their claim equating the calibre and training of the CAPF with the IPS, is demonstrably false. This is reflected in the stance of the Union Public Service Commission and the Ministry of Home Affairs in various court cases and in successive pay commissions where the primacy of the IPS has been reiterated.

An agenda of a small group

The likes of Sood want us to believe that the interests of the directly-recruited officer cadre is the same as the organisational interest, and the national interest. The CAPFs exist to serve the public interest, not the other way around.

Of the nearly 1.1 million sanctioned strength of the CAPFs, less than 20,000 posts are sanctioned for the officer cadre. So are we to believe that the career aspirations of less than 2 per cent personnel should guide all policies vis a vis the CAPFs? This is both an extraordinary and rather absurd expectation.

It will be far better to focus on the career aspirations of nearly 80,000 Inspectors and Sub Inspectors who constitute the functional backbone of the CAPFs and who are no less heroic or committed when compared to the officer cadre. If the government really wants to make a lasting change in improving the general morale and performance of the CAPFs, addressing the stagnation in the Subordinate Officer cadre, and the constabulary, would be a more appropriate intervention.

This is not to suggest that all is well with the All India Services and the IPS. There also, reform is desirable and must be part of a continuous process of improving our quality of governance. However, to think that the need for reform must be guided by the naked self-interest of a cynical and shrill class, like Sood and his disgruntled supporters in the CAPF cadre, would be a mistake. They may protest and heap indignation on the IPS, but they are not making an argument against privilege. Theirs is an argument against merit. And no tissue of lies in their support can disguise this bitter truth.

  1. CAPF should be headed by their own cadre officers and not by some IPS. CAPF cadres know the strength & weakness of their mother organizations and grow a sense of belonging towards their force because they spent their whole career working in same agency where as IPS keep on jumping from one agency to other being it a military or non military role. An IPS cadre officer will never understand the requirement of a force like BSF whose area operation spans from hot Thar desert to the jungles of North East or te operational requirement for ITBP personnel posted at icy glacial as an IPS has never served under such extreme condition during his entire career. So please keep IPS out of CAPFs.

  2. Excellent articulation Sir ! ….Silences of people like you have been and are detrimental to the required reforms Sir ….I acquiesce to your sacred and dignified silence and respect for the uniform and organisation you once served with pride despite all limitations and rightful deprivations ……. but now dont hold back your thoughts and logic to get the MHA mandarins to focus on the ‘writing on the wall’ about the pent up scorn of the citizens against hyped IPS and IAS hot air aura vid a vis their ‘service to the citizens of India’ ! …. All the Best !

  3. Being a civilian n a layman I’m in a better position to review the situation. All over India, from a labourer to a businessman; and a teacher to a lawyer; everybody feels that the IPS are d symbol of corruption.
    Mr Abhinav’s undignified comments show him in a very poor light. Must take some classes from some military general on how to behave.
    The Army generals , esp CDS Gen Rawat should extend a helping hand to CAPF as they are their sister org.

  4. Dear Shri Abhinav Kumar,Your statement–‘Their claim equating the calibre and training of the CAPF with the IPS, is demonstrably false’. What a humorous joke? Does it mean that IPS should have sine cure jobs in states where there are 134-15 DGs instead of having one DGP. Most of these posts are sinecures, superfluous and can’t keep them busy for even half an hour.There ought to be a pyramidal structure in IPS in the states for better discipline and control.They make mockery of the system where the officers at L 14 to L 17 level feel themselves irrelevant, their job and workload and hence their own contribution is no match to that of several junior level officers like SPs in the districts. What is the contribution of DG(Police Manual Vol. I) and DG(Police Manual Vol. II) . Funny thing is these manuals never get written.Your another contention’ It will be far better to focus on the career aspirations of nearly 80,000 Inspectors and Sub Inspectors who constitute the functional backbone of the CAPFs and who are no less heroic or committed when compared to the officer cadre’. This is more true of SIs and Inspectors in State Police Force who deal with the public. Vast improvement i their training and behaviour is required where IPS should play a pivotal rule.At present the public respects army more than the police.It’s for IPS to be more professional and their growth above the level of SSP should be based on their performance and suitability. Simply based on an examination, one can’t claim to rise to L-16 or L-17 holding a superfluous post created just to accommodate the entire batch.The civil service exam is not as tough as you make out to be. I qualified in civil service exam in 1972 . My roll number was 2023.

  5. IG Kashmir being the operational head of Kashmir zone has all the rights to bring out the incompetence of the CO/AC in case of any casualties of Crpf jawans in the valley.This does not mean that he attacked the CRPF organisation as such. CRPF is a large force which has many competent officers but at the same time there are many incompetent officers also..To point out their mistake in a closed door meeting is very much under the authority of IG Kashmir..Did he say anything in media or on any open platform against the force..NO..This whole episode was twisted and made IPS vs CAPF issue by some miscreants to suit their own agenda or to hide their incompetence..It’s hard to believe that an official letter which got viral and that too written by a Commandant who was not even present in the meeting is right or wrong, whether it’s words were twisted or framed..An inquiry is needed how a letter under an Official Secret Act was made viral …An enquiry is needed to ascertain the facts…

  6. Dear mr abhinav, as you are holding a senior rank and post in uniform services, salutation to your superiors must be like that. U r not addressing someone common. Its basic courtesy which is taught in all police academies. Hope u don’t missed that valuable periods during your academy days

  7. IG kashmir being the operational head of kashmir zone has all the rights to bring out the incompetence of the concerned CO/AC in case of any casaulty of crpf jawans in a closed door meeting…This doesnt mean that he attacked Crpf Organization as such…Crpf is a large force with many competent officers but at the same time there are many incompetent officers also…To point out their mistake to prevent any further casaulty of jawans in a closed door meeting was very much under the authority of IG kashmir…Did he say anything in media or in any open platform..NO…so how can one beleive that the signal that was purposely made viral was correct or not and that too by a Commandant who was not even present in the meeting…This whole episode was twisted and was made IPS vs Capf issue by some miscreant elements just to suit their own interest and to hide their incompetence….

  8. I remember it was u who intimidated young lady officers of CAPF over Twitter campaign. And recently used unparliamentary lang for CAPF officers. Get some life b4 u rant over issues with half or perhaps zero knowledge.

    This matter is now of implementing hon’ble courts order in letter n spirit.

    Hw imbecile one can be?

  9. IG kashmir being the operational chief of kashmir zone he has all the rights to bring out the incompetence of the concerned CO and AC in case of any casaulty of crpf jawans in a closed door meeting…This does not mean that he said anything against the Crpf Organization as such…In a large force like Crpf there are many competent officers but at the same time there are also many incompetent officers a
    who are just parasite…To suit their own interest this whole episode has been twisted and made it anIPS vs Capf issue….Neither IG kashmir said anything in media nor in any public flatform…It was a closed door meeting and it was only against the incompetenceof the concerned CO and not againstthe force…So please stop this fruitless debate…

  10. As far as the level of corruption in capf is concerned it is not a hidden fact about the prevalent corruption in Capf..A Capf officer never hesitate to make money out of the rashans and basic amenities meant for the jawans….In the name of renovation of their mess their whole house gets renovated ..How come a Commandant rank officer buys 3 to 4 flats in delhi within a short period of service. Its an irony that the Jawans,Inspector and sub inspector rank of officer of Capf admire an IPS officer more than their own cadre officer because they know it very well that an IPS officer cannot fall to such a low level by making money out of the rashans and basic amenities of jawans…So before pointing finger on others their is a need to introspect the level of corruption among the cadre officers…

    • Who told you that IPS Officers are the most inefficient and noncorrupt. Except a few (5%) the remaining are the most corrupt to the hilt, but posing as the other way. They are cancerous to the society.

  11. All India services were deemed to have been created under Art 312 (including All India Judicisl Service, if created) to maintain the federal structure of the administration among the states of the union. This arrangement is already in place.
    Their induction in CRPF (therefore in CAPFs) was a stop gap arrangement and opposed by the JS & HS in their nothings fearing that it shouldn’t become a promotional avenue for the state police cadres, not a permanent feature. Neither there is any such provision in CRP Act for the continuance of this feature. The issue has been examined threadbare in the High Court of Delhi and reviewed in Hon’bke Supreme Court, both the hon’ble courts have pronounced their well discussed judgments in favour of the CAPF cadre officers.
    The CAPFs which draw their personnel from highest formation down to section level from multiple states, are already federal in composition. The CAPFs don’t require deputation from state police officers of the rank of IG and above to supplement the federalism in these forces. More than the federalism in CAPFs they should worry to improve the level of law & order in their home states. Right now the rate of conviction of crimes is 84% in Kerala but 10% in Bihar with All India average stuck at 46%. These figures are 93% for US and 84.8% for UK. This may necessitate longer duration of tenures in Distts and raising the level of investigating officers (IOs).
    In the light of these facts Does bear any rationale to call senior retired officers of these forces disgruntled or the adjective must heap on its ill-informed deserving owners.
    CRPF has largest presence among CAPFs both in J&K and LWE infested states and her operational achievements & gallantry medal tally among all CAPFs and states have been largest.
    Any field commander will vouch that the terrorist operations hence their results are highly dynamic with many variables in each case. Neither these are always a failure nor always a success. At higher command level an overall view is always preferred.
    These virtues come with service seniority (length of service) we don’t blame you.

  12. I have always thought that the IAS and IPS officers are one exam wonders. After clearing the civil service they suddenly become genius overnight. Suddenly a Arts graduate become masters in healthcare, economics to planning, management and everything in between. Likewise an engineering or medical student becomes superintendent of within few years of joining without doing much work on the ground level. This leads to I know everything attitude. This article reflects the same. Inter service rivalry is another thing, but the way this gentleman expressing his views in public against other police services, it shows his narrow thinking, nothing else.

  13. I requested to Government of India. Remove all IPS Officers from CAPF. I Am also suggested promote Experienced officers who’s working in same force .Manage the force want experienced officer not a degree and more studied IPS officers.

  14. The difference of opinion is between a specialist and a generalist.
    Language or flowery language is the forte of the generalist. He knows how to win laurels with out moving out of a cosy air-conditioned office.
    The speciallist lives by delivering on the requirements of the organisation ,unwept ,unhonoured and unsung .
    The genesis of the problem lies in the inability of the IPS not being able to mind their own turf.
    Now when things have gone out of hand they have to find fresher scapegoats

  15. Hey wannabe, Abhinavji, remember your only claim to fame within the uniform fraternity was a picture of a BSF unit quarter guard, where a track pants/shirt and sports cap clad crazy man was being honoured.
    Haven’t seen or heard enough of you ever since….. Good BSF was able to see your back, earlier would have been better. Keep entertaining us with similar pictures again…..coz writing a piece in a newspaper is too serious a business for some over ambitious kindergarten going kid. Your Oxford doesn’t impress …..coz ur piece is as lowly as the gown u donned that day for Quarter Guard..calling this article even mediocre is such an overstatement . Get over your colonial hangover.

  16. This article is biased and reflects that we r still living in colonial times…these so called rajadhiraj (IPS) are behaving in autocratic manner…if u r so genuine why u guys r not giving equal opportunities to state services…why u hav blocked IPS LDCe exam…and if u hav really respect for the nation then even after grant of OGAS by supreme court,why u hav not granted for capfs… don’t misguide the countrymen for ur personal agenda…some sycophants also had justified colonial rule…the monopoly of these elitists must be broken…they r creating a new economical caste by collecting resources and easily getting into these services…middle class still struggle at constabulary ranks due to lack of resources and opportunities

  17. This crossfire between ips and cadre officers is indeed frivolous and undesirable. Both parties trading punches instead having a open discussion or even an argument. Is this the way all you ‘officers’ operate? Sitting on your high horses and blaming each other when you should be working together. Strange.

    Would have been more fun to read valid arguments with proactive thoughts and particularly without getting personal or challenging people about cracking exams. Wake up my dear leaders. Civilians like me look upto you. Don’t let that aura get lost in this tirade.

  18. The lesser the influence of Bureaucracy, the better it is for India. 72 years lost to extended Raj ‘of the ruler on the ruled’ not any more. The recruitment of Civil Services is not transparent,
    you don’t know why you pass or why you fail, what can you expect from those selected.
    Let professionals handle the various departments and forces.
    Only the organizations free of Civil servants are saving our country e.g Armed forces, ISRO, Research organizations etc. And looking at the language and context and effort that these are using in cat-fights, the immaturity and self-centered character can be seen.
    Also, being out the statistics of casualty of IPS Vs Army Commissioned Officers to know about professionalism.
    I salute some Civil servants though, who fight the system, their own colleagues yet deliver at great personal cost and sacrifice. Example Mr Khemka.

  19. There is a dire need to allow leadership to grow to top from within the force, induction of IPS, is not either required or desirable, it cause more disharmony, than can do good, the role of RR, CRPF and BSF has been commendable, despite heavy offs I’m Kashmir, IPS don’t command that much respect, being local watching police, when we used have one IGP for whole state.

  20. Pls modernise the police which is ur task and which help the police n country and that only proves u a good police offcr..jyada CAPF cadre offcr ,IPS leadership karne se kuch nahi hoga.behave like a public servant which u are.

  21. Sir,your article reeks of hubris n entitlement.True,you qualified an exam,True, IPS officers are meritorious but to be dismissive and contemptuous of the cadre officers’ merit goes on to expose the snooty cocoon you live in and tears apart the exalted status that you gasconade about.The article based on half truths, falsehoods and downright insults is nothing more than a diatribe .The genuine demands of the cadre officers have been duly upheld by the Hon’ble SC of India,and the Govt of the day.Your arguments,devoid of logic and reason are asinine to say the least .
    Federalism,the structure of AIS,Article 312 are now, inconsequential to the issue and just enrich your verbiage.

    However,as far as legal actions are concerned,yes they should be initiated against, you.

    Sir,you would appreciate the following:-

    First and foremost, you being an IPS officer should have been in proper uniform while taking the infamous salute at the QUARTER GUARD,but,sadly,you were not.I think, this blatant disregard and disrespect for the rules and general discipline of the force should be taken into cognisance by the Hon’ble DG .

    Secondly,you should be booked under The Prevention of Insult to National Honours Act,1971 for disrespecting the National Flag and Constitution of India,as this act of yours is a flagrant flouting of rules.

    Thirdly,your actions attract the charge of Sedition under sec 124A of the IPC,as the same are contrary to the Govt’s intent to declare and grant OGAS status to CAPFs’ cadre officers thereby causing resentment towards the govt should be booked under The Police(Restrictions of Rights)Act,1966 for being a part of an association,CIPSA.

    You very conveniently talk about the career prospects of PBOR in a failed attempt to divide the CAPFs.To your dismay,the cadre officers are demanding just that.The cadre as a unit is exceedingly happy with the new vistas open for the junior commanders.
    The simplistic and scornful statements that you make denude your bias against the Cadre officers.
    It is pertinent to mention here that you are from the same service that fought tooth and nail against lateral entry in its ranks and find our issue,a non issue.But it seems hypocrisy runs deep in you.
    Moreover,who made you the custodian of national interest?The CAPF officers very well understand,respect and honour national and public interest.Don’t patronize them.
    They have never questioned your right to serve in states which too actually ,as of now,after grant of OGAS to CAPFs is not your exclusive demesne.But ,it is perplexing why and how the IPS career aspects are in jeopardy with the cadre officers rising up.
    So,kindly refrain from veiled threats and specious arguments.Might I display the temerity to remind you of the pious tenet of EQUALITY OF LAW and the Right to Constitutional Remedies available to every citizen of this great nation,which I am sure you have forgotten in your high handedness.

    The question is not of infallibility,sir,but of propreity and legitimacy.

    Pardon my delayed response,you see, I don’t have the luxury of high speed internet , uninterrupted power supply and most importantly writing in national dailies,and this is the disparity that I am talking about.

  22. The whole moral of the story of the controversy between ig of j&k, capf, crpf is that there is no cordination and they are working only for medals, honours and proving their superiority. The discipline of this people is a shame to the other indian law enforcing agencies. No wonder the terrorists is coming inside jammu and kashmir. My humble request as a indian is that no matter what happens take strict actions against the culprits and send them to jail. There should be a independent enquiry including the chief of army as a panel member. They don’t deserve to work in any law enforcing agencies.

  23. IPS & IAS officers = posting photos on instagram, giving lectures on preparation of UPSC and spoken person of government only

  24. Stumbling upon intemperately worded heading, you end up shutting the text about service interest as you open it. For, those who discuss individuals may not be blissfully aware of the ideas & events behind. Not obliging
    them with those ideas & events in the background, it would suffice to state that for the purpose of undesirable guests overstaying their welcome, all of is are Sh Soods.

  25. If level and quality of entrance exam is no criteria, then what about constables, sub-inspector, inspector etc. They have more field experience and the backbone of police and paramilitary. Why can’t they rise and head the organisations?

  26. I think the Pen has been sold in the hands of decorated and mighty lobby …..

    Kudos CAPF personnel you brought the issues to public ….days are not far away …. You will get justice …

  27. We indians learned only two thing from British…selfishness and self justification.

    Yes reforms are a never ending process of governance…but why…does we always wants our opinion to be super and right while others are always wrong. This all setup issue has been as per constitution of the country then why bragged and bring bad names to yourself ..afterall every servicemen work for the country…or are we working to just sustain ourselves and doesn’t care about our country and service but only our interest. Such people should be sacked immediately. They will take bribe be sold-out the country to the enemy.
    Please follow the Law and the constitution of the country…I don’t think there will be a problem.

  28. Referring a senior officer who is senior in rank and age as sood not Mr Sood itself shows the mental bankruptcy of the writer.

  29. Dear Super Cop
    Kindly visit your police stations and chaukis once in a month . what’s the reputation of police everybody knows in the country except you.most of the IPS officers promoted Corruption , smuggling,Loots in their area.thats why most of them suspended.few are behind the baar and maximum are facing corruption charges.A Parasite Service and its disgruntled and frustrated so called officers are Burden on the system , govt , society and democracy.Few policemen talking about discipline here .O mentally Bancurrupt people Discipline is not part of the policing system . kindly visit any police station and police institution in the country. please come out from your Air conditioned offices visit your police stations .Go among the people.you will feel the reality.

    • As far as corruption is concerned its not a hidden fact about the level of corruption in capf…The capf officers didnt hesitate to make money out of the rashans of jawans…They demand money from their own jawans for granting them leaves…If Capf officers are so honest then how come a commandant rank officer buy 3 to 4 flats in delhi within a short period of service…In the name of renovation of their mess their whole house gets renovated…Its an irony that the jawans ,inspector and sub inspector rank of officer of capf admire Ips officer more than their own cadre officer because they know it very well that an IPS officer cannot fall to such a low level by making money out of the rashans ,clothes and basic amenities of jawans..So please before pointing finger you should go through the facts….

    • Did you forget the sycophancy and ‘Yes Sir’ to every white kurta, pyjama clad followed by a group of rag tags ?? …

  30. This article is in totality a propaganda agenda to protect IPS IG Vijay kumar, jnk police. Mr. Abhinay kumar is also an IPS n it is understood that he will certainly defend his comrades. There are a lot of cadre officers in CAPF who oppose own Cadre officers agenda to throw IPS out of CAPF. It has many reasons. Leave that matter to another time. But this article is totally one sided to support IPS association views and to tarnish Cadre officers in social media. If not then how come he writes column publicly? A column in social media warrants disciplinary action but here he can write any thing? This hypocrisy is opposed by cadre officers. There are a lot of very fine IPS officers who came to CAPF and they have changed the working condition of CAPF positively and ppl still remember them. Still cadre officers wish to keep them as IG but it is also true but some of other IPS also came to CAPF as visitors and usurp the govt property for one agenda- eat, drink and make tour arranged for their relatives and friends. even they disallow the rights of CAPF officers and staff to use their asset to make merry to their civilian friends with high links.
    If operationally he had any plan which was to be condemnd, it should have been rightly condemned but to drag hole CRPF in this mess is beyond thought. Besides, I want to know from writer, whose responsibility is to maintain law n order in state? If any crime occurs then who is at fault? State police of CAPF? Then why state police try to take a shield behind CRPF?

  31. Since childhood, we have learnt that empty mind is a devil’s workshop. The above write up is just another example of this. I was told that the officer was not given charge of any range but shunted in provisioning by snatching command. Probably that is why, in such critical time of pandemic when every other organisation, men and officers are busy in extending their services to the nation, this man found more than sufficient time to accumulate biased narrative, filled with unparliamentary, abusive, negative and above all, baseless statements.

    Generally when a notorious child do some mischief, we initially ignore. But while doing so, unknowingly we forget to correct him, which leads to further degraded attitude and behaviours. This article needed to be corrected, not one but many many facts were distorted, misplaced and misleading hypothesis were added, repeatedly. Ironically, the person, I am calling him a person because calling him an officer is an abuse to the officer fraternity, who himself probably doesn’t know the basic A B C of discipline, decorum and spirit de corps, is advising other Officers to ensure the same. I believe that IGP, J&K Police may have spelled out something uncourteous leading to the outrageous talk around all quarters, but later on he never admitted nor denied the allegations. The matter was done, but now raising this shut issue again, it seems that the person is seeking attention, admiration or trying to cover some malicious malafide manifest. The deep burning wild desire to be noticed in media, even at the cost of disgracing the elite forces of the union, is utterly unbecoming to be a member of a disciplined force, leave aside leading it. Shedding crocodile tears to express solidarity is hardly accepted.

    When as a child, I started learning bicycle, my elder brother use to support me by holding the bicycle alongside my ride. Later when I learnt to ride, the same supporting hand started to hinder my speed and overall journey. My brother gracefully stopped extending the support and went on with his own ride. I couldn’t take it any more. I am sure everyone has the same story. This is life.

    I fail to understand as why this person and other fellow people of his league, (I would certainly not address them with mean words, as this person has mentioned in his write up for many senior officers, as I can never be so low, I do come from a better cultured family) deny to accept the fact that it’s their time to gracefully withdraw. And if this league still believes that all the hardwork done by previous other officers was sheer waste and they couldn’t shape the CAPFs properly yet to let grow on its own, I find no reason to expect any better, from this lot of self obsessed and self centric people, at least.

    Aspiration is an integral part of any service profile, we all know that. If the cadre officer aspire to grow in his own organisation, then what is wrong in that? Talking about all India services, there are still many more horizons to be explored. But betting unconstitutionally upon the rightful, legal and just share of cadre Officers by denying and delaying the implementation of Supreme Court judgement with the help of an illegal association and lobbying by wrongfully accumulated wealth, is completely beyond any parameters of ethics and morality. In this crucial time of pandemic, when the nation is fighting together, shoulder to shoulder, such divisive and destructive rhetoric is highly unacceptable.

    More than anything else, I am shocked to see that the editor team of “The Print” has completely gone in hibernation. This article only reveals that any person with absent mind and destructive mindset, who can pen something, anything, no matter what, no matter how distant from reality, can always find a place in “The Print”. The publication house would only add a sentence that the views are personal and try to evade the responsibility. The author has his own contaminated, polluted and biased agenda, but the editor team of “The Print”, who generally have a credibility to raise voices of unheard, failed this time to their own standards to adjudicate the content before giving any space. The publication of this article is a dark blot on the reputation what the editorial board of “The Print” has earned in years.

    The selfless services, the valour, the patriotism, relentless contribution and finally, the professionalism of cadre Officers is not wanting for any certification from such under developed deprived outlook.

  32. Who commands whome, is none of my concern, but the factual position about CRPF jawans on ground duty, visibally, they look like lazy lamb & tired.

  33. Common man like us do not know the system of procedure used in J&K for IPS and CAPF , but after reading the article , one thing is clear that both units fight terrorism , while fighting terrorism there should no internal dispute between the two units , atleast dirty clothes should not be washed in public , so that people do not loose faithin both the units , any dispute should be internally resolved , but by the looks of the comments under this article , it seems that many of the commentetors are of CAPF faction , and by the language used against the writer of this article and the IPS , it seems that the IPS is being given the raw deal by CAPF , and maximum of CAPF jawans are not academically qualified to reach officer appointment , which needs to be corrected by the top command of CAPF themselves , instead of blaming IPS by listening to some vested interest from the CAPF , working closely to counter terrorism by both the units is the only way to defeat terrorism .

    • If evey other person is writing on behalf of CAPF officers then you must be writing on behalf of IPS lobby !!

  34. I have love for IPS, but such High rank official of IG rank has written such a revengeful article, its very sad affairs for the nation at large.
    Such type of officer bring shame to whole Police organisation and present them in bad light. Remark of Kashmir IG is very bad and unbecoming to be at a leadership role. This IG rather than condemning such remark is praising Kashmir IG, just because he belongs to the same organisation. Rather enquiry should be held and if Kashmir IG is innocent he himself called for inquiry and come clean. Such type of arbitrary lobbying is clearly antithetical to national interest.

  35. IPS is a rotten force. The state of policing in the entire country is a joke and IPS Jokers are squarely responsible for it. What contribution has the IPS had in J&K? They have been hiding behind the army, CRPF, BSF etc as they are unable to maintain basic law and order. It is quite true and valid that CRPF, BSF or ITBP do not want these cowardly unprofessional clowns leading their professional troops.

  36. Rebuttal by Mr Vikram S Panwar, IG(Retd) CRPF

    My dear Abhinav

    As a brother officer in uniform I have been intently following your posts ever since your days as SP in Uttrakhand Khand
    Your command over the language is indeed impressive and should be so being a product of elite Doon school
    Well I too have been one of the best speakers of my time in Delhi university so also at the academy. Flair for writing speaking and blogging runs in our genes too since my son is an acclaimed author poet blogger and international speaker too
    I have always exercised restraint to react to your vitriolic posts but your recent outbursts of venomous emotions against senior colleagues like Mr Asthana Mr Sood and earlier Mr Bholanath has constrained me to air my views.
    As a comrade in uniform I feel this unrestrained abusive attacks on colleagues in uniform does not go down well with other colleagues and specially young officers who are sooner or later bound to emulate us and repay us in the same coin. You cannot expect respect from other side without being humble and respectful yourself. Respect is commanded not demanded.
    Your spat with two young lady probationers of CRPF which forced you to take refuge in the authority of Vijay Kumar the then IG CRPF ,whom you have so vociferously tried to protect in your article, was also avoidable to maintain your own dignity in public forum.
    Merely shouting talking loudly with vitriolic emotions does not always reflect the truth. You really need to be educated on the genesis of deputation of IP and IPS officers to CAPF. Let me make it clear to you that it neither had nor has anything to do with Art 312 Federal Structure AIS IPS rules or IPS tenure policy. You have harped on these factors time and again both inside and outside the courts which have been debated deliberated and debunked in the highest court of law in the country.
    For your kind information the CRPF was raised in 1939 by a British Major and subsequently the command had passed into the hands of army officers who continued to nurture and groom these forces along with few IP and IPS officers till army could no longer provide officers after the aggression of 1962 . The recruitment to CRPF cadre had begun only in 1960 and but obvious they couldn’t have been appointed to senior posts overnight.
    I wish you had read the views of Shri Kanetkar and Shri Rustomji the first DGs of CRPF and BSF on deputation of IPS officers to these forces.I have worked with some of the finest IPS officers and have lots of respect for both Mr Kanetkar and Mr Rustomji they made a massive contribution to these forces but you cannot wish away the equal contribution of sweat and blood of cadre officers who toiled whole their lives to groom these forces . Don’t forget battles are not won by Kings alone but commanders on ground who have been invariably the cadre officers. I wish the present day leadership had the similar disposition and vision to prempt the prevailing acrimony. Both DGs above had opposed the deputations of IPS officers to these cadres on basis of any statutory reservations they were in favour of grooming and promoting cadre officers whom they found better trained and suitable for these forces.They had proposed temporary working formula for induction of IPS officers as stop gap arrangement in the absence of senior and qualified cadre officers in 1970. The then JSP and HS had echoed their views and it had been categorically emphasised in their notings that there is no provision of statutory reservation in CRPF act for reservation for IPS Army or State Police officers which also governed the BSF then .
    HS had recorded we cannot treat these forces as avenues of promotions for IPS officers which cannot be the overriding factor.
    It was on this premise that induction of IPS officers started in CAPF . It is also on record in writing that IPS officers stopped coming as Commandants to these forces due to unattractive terms of deputation. Gradually the posts of DIGs too became unattractive to IPS keeping in view hostile terrains and high threat perceptions.It is also on record in writing that despite offers of choice postings , preferences in foreign postings and foreign courses . grant of meritorious and distinguished medals on priority enhanced quota of tenure pool accommodation government could not attract IPS officers. Hence for heavens sake stop taking refuge of professionalism national security better training rights of IPS to justify continuance of Deputations. It is your personal choices personal interests which have been governing the status of Deputations and not your rules and rights. If these Deputations were your right why these provisions were never invoked to check the gradual reduction in quota of IPS reservation in these forces. Why no hue and cry was made on these grounds in 2008 against recommendations of the 6 th CPC. Dear friend it is high time we all rise above personal interests and give preference to national interests. Let us get out of this rigmaroles of superior and inferior service complex. No one is superior or inferior we both have been recruited trained and groomed for our respective jobs. We should have mutual respect for each other’s service rights and growth and career opportunities. Please broaden your vision as well as let your heart go off the desires causing pain and agony to your conscious after all career progression of CAPF officers in no way is coming into the way of your career progression.Rather than exhorting the DGs to take action against cadre officers you should request them to take a holistic view and remedial actions to redress the genuine grievances of cadre officers to ameliorate this growing acrimony jeopardising the very fabric of national security , coordination cooperation and brotherhood between uniformed services. This boisterous and arrogant approach will not lead you to any conflict resolution in service matters. A brotherly advice from an elder and more experienced officer of CRPF that please get out of the disillusionment that these forces cannot be commanded if left to cadre officers. The britishers and several pompous leaders had this mirage effect that world shall be doomed after their departure. All invincible lords are comfortably resting in their graves . Your and my existence is too ephemeral and as delicate as drops of dew. So let’s strive to leave indelible prints of graceful existence on sands of time .

  37. Dear Mr Abhinav Kumar,
    I think ,the Oxford university and Police Service has not taught you how to differ seniors view with due respect.
    It is not just Sood …से प्रारंभ हुए पैराग्राफ में आपने श्री विजय कुमार , कश्मीर आई जी के समर्थन में CRPF कमान्डेंट द्वारा दिए गए बेतार व उसके बाद की परिस्थितियों का वर्णन किया है तथा उनकी नकारात्मक छवि को उकेरने के लिए आपने CAPFs अधिकारीयों द्वारा भारी धनराशी एकत्र कर किसी NGO द्वरा IPS अधिकारीयों के खिलाफ मुकदमेबाजी और सरकार में पक्ष जुटाव की बात कही है | आप जैसे ज्ञानी और उच्च अधिकारी की कलम से ऐसी मनगढ़ंत कहानी की कल्पना भी बेवाकी थी | CAPF अधिकारीयों के पास आपके जैसा अविधिक IPS एसोसिएसन नहीं है , राजनेताओं तक सीधी पहुच नहीं है और गलत तरीके से अर्जित धन भी नहीं है | अगर ये सब होता तो यकीन मानिये उच्च न्यायलय, उच्चतम न्यायलय और कैबिनेट मंजूरी मिलने के बाद भी CAPF में OGAS के सभी उपबंधों को सही तरीके से लागू करने की बेशर्मी और हिमाकत आप लोग नहीं करते और आप ये लेख भी नहीं लिखते |
    अगले पैराग्राफ में आपने खुले तौर पर सम्बंधित कमान्डेंट और मौजूद अधिकारीयों को मीटिंग के दौरान ही श्री दिलबाग सिंह, महानिदेशक जम्मू कश्मीर के सामने अपना विरोध व्यक्त करने की चुनौती के बारे में वर्णन किया है | महोदय यही अंतर पुलिस और CAPF की कार्य संस्कृति में है बाकी आप समझदार है खुद ही बाद के घटनाक्रम में जम्मू कश्मीर पुलिस द्वारा डैमेज कण्ट्रोल हेतु किये गए कार्यों से समझ गए होंगे |
    Outrageous Claim वाले पैराग्राफ में आपने CRPF के गत वर्ष के 125 मेडल में से 95 मेडल के जम्मू कश्मीर प्रक्षेत्र से आने व बाकि क्षेत्रों में नगण्य होने की बात कही है और इस सम्बन्ध में घृणित व भ्रामक अफवाह फ़ैलाने वाले CAPF खासकर CRPF अधिकारीयों को आत्मविश्लेषण करने की सलाह दी है | महोदय शायद आत्मविश्लेषण और डाटा विश्लेषण करने की जरुरत आप जैसे प्रबुद्ध वर्ग को भी है | विगत 10 वर्षों में CRPF के द्वारा प्राप्त क्षेत्रवार पदकों का विश्लेषण कीजिये , समसामयिक आतंरिक सुरक्षा परिदृश्य को देखिये | आपको स्वयं का भी आत्मविश्लेषण करने की नितांत आवश्यकता पड़ेगी|
    अगले पैराग्राफ में आपने मिस्टर सूद को क़ानूनी नतीजे भुगतने और CAPF के अधिकारीयों द्वारा सोसल मिडिया पर अपने हक़ की मांग उठाने के लिए भी कार्यवाई करने की बात कही है | आप भी अछूते नहीं है श्रीमान , आपके ट्विटर के स्क्रीनशॉट सबके पास है | बाकी आपने अपने कृत्यों और कार्यप्रणाली से अपने गृह राज्य में कितने लाख पुलिस बलों और कितने संगठनों का मनोबल उठाया है इसकी केस स्टडी बननी बाकी है|
    अपने आलेख के अगले भाग में आपने CAPF कैडर अधिकारीयों के कैरियर प्रोग्रेशन व अपने उच्च वर्ण की मनगढ़ंत कहानी को बहुत अच्छे से प्रस्तुत किया है और अपनी विशिष्ट वर्ग द्वारा CRPF कैडर अधिकारीयों के अवतरण व उनके पालन का जिम्मा भी लिया है | महोदय जरा सोचिये, परिवार, समाज, व देश की वर्तमान पीढ़ी को बिगड़ने का ठीकरा पिछली निक्कमी पीढ़ी के ऊपर ही थोपा जाता है| परन्तु यह जान कर अत्यंत प्रसन्नता हुई की आपको भी CAPF के 80000 अधीनस्थ अधिकारीयों की चिंता है | जाहिर है पुरे देश में राज्य पुलिस में अधीनस्थ अधिकारीयों के कैरियर प्रगति व उनके विकाश के लिए अभूतपूर्व कार्य किया है | राज्यों में हुई कई घटनाएँ इसका ज्वलंत उदहारण है| हाल के दिनों में दिल्ली में पुलिस बलों के 24 घंटे अपने मुख्यालय के सामने दिए गए धरने का इस विकाश से कोई सम्बन्ध नहीं है क्योकि दिल्ली पुलिस केंद्र की पुलिस है | जाइये अपने राज्य की चिंता कीजिये | CAPF के अधीनस्थ अधिकारीयों की चिंता के लिए CAPF के कैडर अधिकारी जिन्दा है|
    अंतिम भाग में आपने अखिल भारतीय सेवावों में भी सुधार की जरुरत को अपरिहार्य समझा है जो कुछ समय पूर्व भाप्रसे समान नियुक्ति व समानता के लिए आपके दिल में उठी तिस की एक झलक है परन्तु कैबिनेट मंजूरी मिलने के बाद भी CAPF को छोड़ना नागवार है जब तक की आपका आर्डर केंसिल न हो जाये |
    आशा है देव भूमि उतराखंड में पुलिस महानिरीक्षक संभरण व आधुनिकीकरण के रूप में आप राज्य पुलिस को एक नया रूप देंगे जो सभी के लिए एक मॉडल होगा और उसकी नक़ल कर देश व राज्य के पुलिस बल आधुनिकीकरण की गति के साथ कदम मिला सकेंगे | CAPF के ही मेरे एक अधिकारी ने बताया है की Achievements is different than Activity and an officer should strive for accomplishment of the achievement. आशा है आपके द्वारा किये जा रहे विशिस्ट कार्यों की एक केस स्टडी सभी CAPFs को भी भेजी जाएगी ताकि वो भी इससे लाभान्वित हो सके |
    जय हिन्द ……..जय CAPFs

  38. I agreed with IG Kashmir Vijay Sir-IPS about ground reality. “Sou baathon ki ek baath” CRPF is not working properly. Now come to the point why CRPF don’t work properly..
    The reason is. Ground level officers commanding troops are “nikkame nalayak” kism ke NON-IPS officers who are one time wonders entered in Force with limited qualities through less competitive selections.
    ..
    Actualy the mistake is committed by government of India. Here with example which may be little bit irrelavant, but easy to understand the fact with a hindi folk/moral story line that :-
    “Kutthon ko sher ka khaal pehnaane se.. kutthey sher nahi ban jathey” subsequently after long time “kutthey willingly on accepting task and silently wearing sher ka khaal on looking themself get confuse and feels themself as Sher and try to establish Kingdom as like a real Sher. Finally Dishonest and foolish “kutthey apni aukaath bhool jaathey hain’ and unfortunately poorey jungle ke jeevon ko confuse karke kud raja hone ka daava karne lagthey hain.. Kuch dinon ke liye, kuch hadh thak keliye, kuch kuthon ko strategically sher ka khaal pahnaya jaana, poorey jungle ke jeevon ke liye bhaari bhool saabhith ho jaatha hai.
    Hence, looking on shortage of All India Civils Services Exams and IPS courses Qualified officers, the non-IPS officers(DAGOs/DASOs) were wrongfully upgraded and designated over then limited posts at higher authorities over then appropriate perameters allowed in Rucruitment Rules provisions of CAPF police administration. It was golden opportunities given to NON-IPS officers of CAPF but dishonest NON-IPS officers are misusing such wrongful upgradations provided to them. It seems it is a wrongful practice to continue the same in future of internal security-Central Armed Police Forces. Wrongfully upgradated/designated NON-IPS officers with common decorations are getting mentally troubled due to which the dishonest and greedy NON-IPS officers are comparing themselves with IPS officers. Non-IPS officers don’t know the meaning of CADRE and how the union of India decides statewise allocation of Civil Services Officers for all over India and how those state CADRE officers on seniority with state level ground experience promoted for upperstage to provide services to union of India with expertise. Therefore the Non-IPS officer of CAPF are deciding themselves as CADRE officers and wrongfully publishing in social media that, the “INDIAN POLICE SERVICES” officers are not Cadre assigned or not authorised for Central Police Organizations/CAPF. And dreaming that, the Central Police organisations must be treated as “Baap ka jageer” of monopoly group of Non-IPS officers. Finally with 99% majority of DAGOs and DASOs unfairly upgraded upto ADG level are causing disastrous “monopoly” and feeling themselves as Cadre officers. And finally treats just remained 1% of IPS Cadres as “lawaris”/outsourced Indian Police Services officers.

    • Ek exam ke dene se professionalism prove kaise hota hai janaab. Nikamma vahi hai jo inko nikamma keh raha hai aur koi nhi. Aur IPS officers kis kism se aage ho gye just because ki voh civil servants hai , paper toh koi bhi ratt ke nikaal sakta yeh rattu popato ka bas itna hi hai. Kutten kaun hai…vahi hai jo bina kisi tajurbe ke bhaukte hue apne malik ki jhaangeer par baithe hai..jaise yeh IPS kar rhe hai. Home grown cadres voh hai jo iss jungle mei shuruat se hai..sher toh vahi hue naa..jo shuruaat se jungle mei jungle ko bhali bhaati jaante hai , kutten toh balki voh hai jo chaat chaat ke jahaan khaana biscuit mila bas gye vahi. Ab bataiye harkato se kaun kutta hai aur kaun sher. Now let’s be civilized and talk about facts . All the given data is outrightly redundant as well as unauthentic. Nobody is comparing the work or quality of IPS or CAPF the talk is about relevance , how relevant will it be if I come to your house and your father makes me the karta of your family. Would that be acceptable nahina. That’s the point and how do you even claim the IPS training to be professionaly superior , these cadre officers are also trained in their own respective academies in respect to their own jobs. So these people have been raised well in the jungle not under the heads of their so called political masters. They deserve every bit of
      thier right to be DG of thier own cadres. If something is wrong then people would be vocal about it otherwise people like you would always sit at the top to manipulate and spew venoms. Professional quality is just a garb ki lamba exam de diyaa govt ki A category mei aa gye toh baap bannn gye. Yeh waali harkat kutte IPS officers ne dikhayi hai CAPF ne nhi.

  39. IPS should be in state police, CAPF should have there own cadre, thy had served in force at company level and then thy raise, while IPS sahab land at DIG rank, this system should be done away

  40. You’re one to talk about lies, Abhinav.
    You have continuously resorted to lies in your attempts to justify IPS presence in CAPF – I remember you characterised BSF as a primarily anti smuggling agency and thus IPS officers who have dealt with such cases are a good fit. In one of your more outrageous articles, you explain how the army tests physical ability in SSB while no physical test is taken in CAPF – whereas it’s the other way around. But I’m not surprised, since you didn’t have to take any physical test in your life of any sort.

  41. In the first place why do the IPS cadre get deputed to CAPF ? Are there not enough men in the latter cadre to man high ranking posts ?
    IPS personnel are top ranking policemen and men of excellence from selection , training and performance in their parent organization. But why unnecessarily induct them in to CAPF and cause bad blood between brother forces. Inducting junior in service IPS officers over the head of a CAPF officer with longer service not only clogs their machine but also frustrates the devoted who are born and bred in the mother organisation. IPS is really great but it is not a free size to fit all feet that tread the mined border..Let each service excel in their allotted service and not keep hunting for a vacant higher berth in sister organisation to wash their dirty linen in public .

    • IPS are untrained civil servants full of false egos and no professionalism. The very idea that they lord over senior in CAPFs is abhorrent to good order and discipline,the IPS should be restricted only to civil police duties, even for which they are unfit, CAPFs are a disciplined and trained force and should be led by their own cadre officers to prevent heart burning and blockage of promotional avenues at present captured by unprofessional IPS.

  42. Absolutely nonsensical rhetoric without any substance. IPS is to enjoy the perks not fight as a soldier. BSF ITBP and CRPF have fought alongside army in all wars. Has any IPS fought any war? Any martyrdom? No. They come to pass time and enjoy perks when state govt is not suitable. There is nothing common in CAPF and IPS so why should they have all the authority without any accountability? IPS and CAPF have nothing in common.
    I reject this rant outrightly an aim to misguide thenation. Cadre officers must take the fight to finish.

  43. IG sir atleast you should have matched the fitness level of IPS officers and CAPF officers before stating such malicious facts ; the whole country know these are u people responsible for erosion of trust of the Citizens on the police system. Next time before writing your own version of story atleast once check the level of corruption charges pending on your fellow colleagues. It’s really shameful instead of regretting u r still spreading lies.SHAME SHAME

  44. I had left a comment few hours back and it showed in comment box for a while before got censored and deleted. There were 39 comments prior to mine; now showing only 07. Voice choked, smoked and blocked. But why? If it’s an open forum then why freedom of expression is chained.

  45. पुलिस को देश की सबसे भ्रस्ट संस्था बनाने में इन जैसे अधिकारियो का ही सहयोग रहा है । ज्यादतर ये वीर पुलिस अधिकारी अपने जीवन काल मे वीरता पदक अर्ध सैनिक बल के अवधि में लिए है क्योंकि हिस्सा बटाने में माहिर है । पर अगर इनके अंदर ही प्रतिभा होती नेतृत्व की या जमीनी देलिरी की तो पुलिस सेवा में पाए होते । पर पुलिस सेवा में धन अर्जन बहुतायत कर लेते है जो शायद इसका हक समझते है । अभिनव कुमार जी बहुत कोशिश किये की कैडर में न जाना पड़े पर बिचारे न चाहते हुए गए …..पर क्यों नही जाना चाहते है ।
    विजय कुमार जी तो ठीक से बोल नही पाते पता नही ट्रिगर दबाना जानते भी है कि नही …
    पुलिस को सड़ाने वाले यही लोग है …फेल्ड कैडर

    • Bhai pehli baat jab tum sareaam reply karte ho to, sareaam apna name bata ke bhi reply kar sakti ho.
      Dusri baat, Mai wait karunga MN ya jo koi bhi ho, agle saal 2021 me dekhta hun tumhara naam aata hai ki nahi UPSC ki IPS list me . Gaali to dene ka bahut mann kar raha hai. But publically nahi de sakta. Ek IPS ke bare me bolne se pehle ye sochna ki meri aukaat kah hai. Aur mai kiske bare me bol raha hun. Tum jaise log deshdrohi hai. Dam hai IPS banne ka….

  46. IPS ऑफिसर्स वास्तव में अक्षम हैं CAPF की कमान सम्हालने के लिए। CAPF में IPS ऑफिसर्स एक तरह से सर्विस टूर करने आते हैं इससे ज्यादा कुछ नहीं। न तो इन्हें जमीनी स्तर का कोई अनुभव होता है न जानकारी, संसाधनों के दुरुपयोग और CAPF के स्तर को सदा नीचे गिराए रखने में केवल आईपीएस की पैराशूट लैंडिंग ही जिम्मेदार है।

  47. Dear Abhinav,
    Are you sane? Aren’t you’ve read the verdict given by the Hon SC and DHC furthered by Cabinet! You’re talking in such inappropriate language to Mr Sood Sir, Ex ADG, BSF like he is contemporary to you! He has put in 35 year plus service and you’ll need one decade to match him in service and competence. It shows you’re too egomaniac! Your sense of superiority comes from within! You’ve your domain and CAPFs have their domain. Nowhere in the world it is in practice that any police officer comes to command armed forces! However it’s vice versa! “Jinke khud ke ghar kanch ke hote hai na dusro ke gharo me pathhar nahi mara karte!” Your association soon will going to be persecuted and many are facing contempt of judiciary orders! So, better save yourself and your illegal association! Your mud slinging is known pan India and thus you’re not given extension in CAPFs. Bhagwan bhala kare UKD Police ka jaha is jaisa afsar aseen hai!

    Outrageous Claim वाले पैराग्राफ में आपने CRPF के गत वर्ष के 125 मेडल में से 95 मेडल के जम्मू कश्मीर प्रक्षेत्र से आने व बाकि क्षेत्रों में नगण्य होने की बात कही है और इस सम्बन्ध में घृणित व भ्रामक अफवाह फ़ैलाने वाले CAPF खासकर CRPF अधिकारीयों को आत्मविश्लेषण करने की सलाह दी है | महोदय शायद आत्मविश्लेषण और डाटा विश्लेषण करने की जरुरत आप जैसे प्रबुद्ध वर्ग को भी है | विगत 10 वर्षों में CRPF के द्वारा प्राप्त क्षेत्रवार पदकों का विश्लेषण कीजिये , समसामयिक आतंरिक सुरक्षा परिदृश्य को देखिये | आपको स्वयं का भी आत्मविश्लेषण करने की नितांत आवश्यकता पड़ेगी|
    अगले पैराग्राफ में आपने मिस्टर सूद को क़ानूनी नतीजे भुगतने और CAPF के अधिकारीयों द्वारा सोसल मिडिया पर अपने हक़ की मांग उठाने के लिए भी कार्यवाई करने की बात कही है | आप भी अछूते नहीं है श्रीमान , आपके ट्विटर के स्क्रीनशॉट सबके पास है | बाकी आपने अपने कृत्यों और कार्यप्रणाली से अपने गृह राज्य में कितने लाख पुलिस बलों और कितने संगठनों का मनोबल उठाया है इसकी केस स्टडी बननी बाकी है|

    अंतिम भाग में आपने अखिल भारतीय सेवावों में भी सुधार की जरुरत को अपरिहार्य समझा है जो कुछ समय पूर्व भाप्रसे समान नियुक्ति व समानता के लिए आपके दिल में उठी तिस की एक झलक है परन्तु कैबिनेट मंजूरी मिलने के बाद भी CAPF को छोड़ना नागवार है जब तक की आपका आर्डर केंसिल न हो जाये |
    आशा है देव भूमि उतराखंड में पुलिस महानिरीक्षक संभरण व आधुनिकीकरण के रूप में आप राज्य पुलिस को एक नया रूप देंगे जो सभी के लिए एक मॉडल होगा और उसकी नक़ल कर देश व राज्य के पुलिस बल आधुनिकीकरण की गति के साथ कदम मिला सकेंगे | CAPF के ही मेरे एक अधिकारी ने बताया है की Achievement is different than Activity and an officer should strive for accomplishment of the achievement. आशा है आपके द्वारा किये जा रहे विशिस्ट कार्यों की एक केस स्टडी सभी CAPFs को भी भेजी जाएगी ताकि वो भी इससे लाभान्वित हो सके |
    जय हिन्द ……..जय CAPFs

  49. Since independence the no. Of serious deciplinary actions and criminal prosecutio s concluded sucesfully against IAS or IPS is in single digit.Nothing sticks to a corrupt and criminal IAS or IPS, they bend laws to thier benefitactions or Criminal prosecution alone., these two All India Services are imune to accountability and have beco.e curse for this nation.

  50. Ex ADG Shri SK Sood is an officer of 1976 Batch of direct entry officers of BSF. He remained in SPG and in almost all bordering states in the country in various capacities and is therefore competent to have his views relating to CAPFs and also on all internal security matters. Therefore his views are to be respected even if someone differs.2) The comments of IG Kashmir were made by him in meeting attended by officers of other security forces. Making such a sweeping and derogatory comments about a Force of which he himself remained a part does not speak of his maturity and standard of leadership. 3) Even if there was something more which CRPF was expected to do ,he should have called their commanders separately and guided and motivated them. 4) Bringing this issue in to focus by CAPF officers reflects their courage of conviction and clarity of thought and perception and not poor level of leadership 5) Both ie IPS and CAPF commanders should work together as a team. All should learn from the example of leadership which Shri K P S Gill IPS provided while fighting terrorism in Punjab.

  51. The writer should atleast once leave his hollow sense of superiority and instrospect the competency his own clan in CI/CT/ ANO role. He talks that national interest is greater than the interest of meagre number of CAPF officers . Agreed. But then the same applies to the IPS clan too. When and how the interest of a handful of IPS officers’ clan has taken over the interest of nation? All the CAPFs officers stand united for our nation more than the writer’s clan. They fight, they suffer, they sacrifice any where and every where for their, our country. This proposal of creating rift between the officers and officials by the writer, suggested to GoI and DsG of CAPFs speaks volume of the colonial mindset of the writer and his clan. Mind one thing, like the British, your and your clan’s days in CAPFs are approaching dead end. Your evil design and hollow sense of superiority is not gonna save your honeymoon period in CAPFs.

    • I don’t think Shri Abhinav IG has said anything which should hurt the ego of so called Direct entry officers. First of all you need to introspect yourself and how you treat your subordinates. Well I don’t think there is a difference between the exam of a SI and AC, yet a young boy joining as SI is treated as if he doesn’t know anything. Whereas, there is lot of difference between a civil services exam and AC exam and yet you want to compare yourself to IPS. Every individual who joins as AC is likely to be promoted by virtue of his joing date irrespective of his competency . In this regard I am of the opinion people shouldn’t be promoted after the rank of 2IC unless they clear an exam (staff course in armed forces) . As you have claimed how come an IPS officer can command armed forces, than you should also be ready to follow what they (armed forces)follow and not everyone becomes General. But you want to choose which suits you and will oppose what is against your thoughts and fantasies

      • From where armed forces come here ?? Its not headache of Armed forces or paramilitary forces but a internal matter of police and CAPF only …
        And about promotion to next level in armed forces is concerned there are 3 types of promotion given in armed forces on competence , on area posting and lastly if both can’t be achieved than exams so that others can also became after a certain years in service

      • Both exams are conducted by UPSC not much diffrence in the content
        The Civil Services have a higher rate of competition being for a more senior post and lucrative service
        Yes the IPS being posted at DIG levels is wrong. If IPS wants to be part of CAPF they need to begin at company levels which will bring about a better understanding of the operations

        By the way if IPS cadre is so good it does not reflect on the functionung of India’s police forces across states which is weell below par

  52. Officers of CAPF who are crying with pseudo names on social media about better rank and service conditions of IPS officers must be knowing this system when they joined the service. Every service from constable to DG has its role and job cut out. CAPFs are not army. They are not under ministry of defense. They are under home ministry so premier service of IPS has a natural role in their policy making & command posts. If these disgruntled officers are so envious of IPS positions then they should have joined IPS. …. Oh wait, they did try, but couldn’t. My sympathies, it is natural to be frustrated then.

    • If you want to sit at CAPF portfolios then why didn’t you di it from the beginning, oh sorry you just wanted to be corrupt. Nobody wants to be an IPS we know what your conditions are , but the fact is why you IPS want to sit at posts where you have no onground experience completely under the garb of legal lacunas. Why you want to be the king of a place where you never belonged instead why can’t you focus on your areas of civil policing. No CAPF wants to be treated like IPS officers herein if a CAPF officer becomes a cadre DG he will still remain a CAPF officer only which he was thoroughout his life , but instead you the moment you take command of these forces you want all the resources at your behest, all the facilities and attach suffixes like ex CRPF , ex BSF . If you really are so proud of the sense of superiority that you achieve by clearing a rattu examination why can’t you settle in your own organization . The moment you retire or discharge why these people want to associate themselves as if they were part of the family from the very beginning. This neglected attitude is what makes you highly shameless . Just grow up look beyond books

    • Or may be they didn’t got army so they joined CAPF coz they wanted action with assault rifles and better equipment and not a boring job of policing society with a small 30m range pistol which they won’t get a chance to use ever too ….

      And IPS are under trained respect to CAPF

    • But dear intellectual Apex court has told the CAPF was organised service since 1986 and it was your dear lobby who denied and murdered
      the natural justice since decades. If lobby still think that they will defy apex court decision then let clear ur concept that CAPF fraternity is trained for fight till last breath for justice.They are just following their oath. 😊

    • Mr mishra if you would have took some pain to know about the background of this fight you would have written such non sense comments. Cadre officers are still fighting for what they have been granted by Supreme court and GoI but it just a matter of time that even after OGAS status we are having IPS here, matter of time that organisation other than CIPSA are illegal, matter of time that sponsored comments are written in favor of wrong things. Anyways if an IPS wishes to head a force he should join directly as DAGO/Asstt. Comdt. and then move upto top in these force rather than just to para-drop at supervisory level because it is the force in the ground which have to pay the price of so called paradropped experimentalists. And finally I was just going through an article where IPS have raised concerns about their career progression due to undue advantage being given to IAS Officers; needless to say some such IPS had tried to be IAS but couldn’t make it.. and now see …writing sponsored articles.

  53. Faltu article sirf Apne IG ko defend krne ke liye kirpya krke is dhoke ko na pde jis hisab se ye lika hua hai saaf jahir hta h ek IPS ko dusre ke kitne chinta hai .CAPF need there own cadre officers and soldiers not any outsider or babu
    In logo se civil tho smbhla Nahi jta or mze ke le posting cahiye CAPF Mai kyu forces Mai fighter cahiye sir AC ke room m bete hue babu Nahi kab smjoge hr chiz ek traf par hmare forces m ese out sider Nahi ane cahiye bht frak hai force m job krna or civil ke high class facilities ko enjoy krte job krna bhot frak hai sir
    Agr itna bhoot h Kam krne Ka tho civil m kyu Nahi krta koi dng se kaam police p bht power h pr ky inke high class officers ne sb glt kaam khtm kr dia Jo Roz civil m hta hai? Kx Nahi sb bkawas hai ek advocate hne ke Nate Mai in logo ko serious Nahi lta AC ke room m Beth ke kx bhi bakwas likh Diya sorry not acceptable
    Forces need to be reform, inke IPS babu association wase bhi SC or HC m case har chuke hai capf cadre officers se pr inke lobby ne abi tak nffu Nahi Diya pxa Jaye kyu ?
    (View are personal)🙏

  54. There have been numerous exapmles of IPS Officers with outstanding courage and valour but this writer does not seems to belong to that class given his blatantly abrasive state of mind and choice of words. The print must verify the service records of a writer before giving him space. I believe he is just a controversy material.

    • I do agree with you sir on your views on the writer. Every Tom , dick and harry who joins as AC thinks himself as future DG.

  55. As far as the superiority of IPS cadre officers go, it is clear visible. Just by passing one civil services exam they think of having a superior merit to all the officers of other organization. But the sad reality is that even after converting these Einsteins into officers, the state of our police is worst in the country. This officer above is talking about the state of inspectors and sub inspectors in the CAPF while clearing ignoring the much dreaded state of his own officers shows how much most of these “IPS” officers are living in a wonderland, just like Alice. Today if officers like ADG Sood are taking a stand and are not afraid of the lobby of these so called great IPS and IAS officers lobby, then i think our country is somewhere moving in the right direction. On one side there’s this officer who after serving valiantly for 35 yrs couldn’t become a DG even after having the courage, spirit, mindset and the utmost dream and on the other hand there’s these officers who become DG in 18yrs and are “excellently” leading our police force. If today not one or two or three but a big number of these officers are raising their voice then they all are not dumb. But at the end the question is, who should we actually blame for this state? These ignorant, opportunist lobbyists or these politicians sitting right at the top who are nothing more than Gandhiji’s monkeys.

    • Well an IPS officer doesn’t become DG in 18 years it takes 35 years of service for an IPS officer to become DG. And how can you compare so called direct entry officer to an IPS officer. I have seen many so called direct entry officers, who are not even competent to become a constable.

  56. This kind of degeneration is to be discouraged, any service has certain internal rivalries, main ly rising in cadres & direct appointment via Service commission, UPSC etc…the Ministry concerned is to call for an enquiry, as the issue is concerned with respect to border areas of Kashmir…Serving or Retired officials have code on conduct which have to be followed, otherwise criminal case has to be booked and prosecuted to avoid demoralisation in areas like Kashmir, which is under transformation after many decades of instability & violence…

  57. You are talented no doubt about it. But pl focus your energy on the policing matters of your state. I m told that the constables n other state officers need your guidance in planning their careers. I m sure one day, the CM will recognise your talent and give you a better position,as per your capabilities. May god shower his choicest blessings on you and release your share of wisdom tooth as early as possible.AMEN

  58. In a subject such as this some bias is acceptable. But to claim super capability in all circumstances is stretching it a bit too far. However, exception to the rule is also there.
    Equally CAPF officers of DIG and above comprise officers from State Police on deputation, Army short service commission and UPSC selected DRs. It is the plea and rightful claim of CAPF to be declared eligible to head the force by virtue of their ground and front level experience as opposed to the IPS being appointed at the fag end of their service and therefore may not always be able to provide the required leadership. This argument is not without substance though.
    On the other hand officers like Vijay Kumar, IG Kashmir would stamp their merit anywhere and many of his ilk before him have established their credentials. But such instances are far and few between.
    At the end of the day give the devil its due because it deserves it.

  59. The article is as biased as #IPS r for #capf. The constitution/federalism n govt to whom this article is indicating,has given the status of #ogas to #capf. Why not it has been implemented after more than 16 month of the cabinet approval/announcement.If u people are so much worried about the stagnation of the PBORs how much time u ppl raise the voice of SI/Insp of state police for their carrer progression.A direct appointed SI of state police hardly get 2/3 promotion in entire career while in CAPF they get chance to become CO n sometimes DIG also.So b fare n responsible while putting your views on a national platform. Good day.

  61. Not in favour of this article which highly against capf functioning and administration just because being ips he thought he could speak any thing but he forgot capfs way of work is different than police services and if some ips come to capf they disrupts the working of the force because lack of knowledge about the working of force just enjoying the promotion strata is not give ips to think being superior in working for any force capf working need different mindset for which high rank position be only filed by capf officers for the benefit of force and those who work from the beginning in understanding of force.

  62. An officer taking salute at one CAPF quarter guard wearing casuals in a fortified close wall camp is not a closed door type act. It is a compromise with ethos and grand traditions set by founder members.Anyway a wrongful remark even in closed door meeting is not a closed chapter and its finding vent does not spoil the show but strengthens and auto corrects some zynx in our great federal system. It is not clear whether writer is putting forth his views as an IPS or as a fence sitter or both. Biased optics as IPS is for everyone to see. What lags State Police and how much IPS contribute to it should also have been reflected. Much humours trending in social media about traffic cops after increased traffic penalties was for everyone to see. Writer sheds his IPS robes, dons a civilian writer role and slyly begins referring a senior retired ADG as Sood. Getting enough pleasurely delight. Enjoying both worlds, IPS and columnist.

  63. I am an CAPF Officer rose through ranks on promotion..

    The Constabulary and Sub officers of all CAPF are happy to See only IPS as their senior as most of the directly recruited CAPF officers are parasite on their Jawans.

    Most of the CAPF officers are biased with their men and not as dispassionate as IPS.

    This so called Direct recruits of CAPF steal the good work of their sub Officers and claim they are operational experts.

    They can’t stand before a competent IPS officers as stand exposed of their ignorance.

    Whether in the NE or J&K successes of any CAPF lead by IPS .this is my personal experience as Deputy Commandt who rose through hard work and promotion.

    • I agree with you…IPS services have given some of the best officers in this country and this agenda is just an effort by desperate personal to achieve (ranks) which is otherwise out of their official bounds.

  64. ‘मरता क्या न करता’, this is the condition of Mr. Abhinav Kumar in general and IPS lobby in particular. They know that in the near future, they will have to leave CAPF and hence they are continuing their fight with unjustified claims. I have been observing armed forces for more than 26 years, I have found that nowhere in the world in developed or developing countries, armed foces are headed by police forces. IPS lobby is having a clear foulplay with national security.

  65. IAS shouldn’t be given any plum posting in the CAPF. Instead officers from CAPF should be selected for the top posts. Period.

  66. IAS shouldn’t be given any plum posting in the CAPF. Instead officers from CAPF should be selected for the top posts. Period.

  67. United we stand…divided we fall. The CAPF leadership must sort out the issues which have created such a divide. Ultimately ‘nation first’ should be the agenda.

  68. Clearly biased article where Mr. Abhinav Kumar is spreading lies about BSF officer. Actually IPS remain in the top managementof Central armed police forces(CAPF), and they intentionally plan so that CAPF officers are denied the benefits of promotion. Recently in 2015, Organised group A status was given to CAPF by the Delhi High Court, but the Home Ministry under the influence of IPS(as they command a major stake in the ministry) went to court against the order. The verdict of Delhi HC was upheld by Hon. Supreme Court on Feb 2019 and the Union cabinet issued an order to implement the judgement in July 2019. But the benefits have yet not reached the CAPF officers. The IPS association (which has beendeclared illegal by the court) is continuing to keep CAPF in tussles. The actual cause of stagnation in CAPF for all ranks starting from constable is caused by the IPS deputation itself.

  69. ‘Saga of wounded pride’….shame on u…u r discounting martyrs of this country…u r a real parrot…go nd do some introspection first…then come up with some credible facts. Everyone knows how efficient is J&K police nd what CRPF has done….if u have had lost smone from ur family…then u might have understood what it is all about….shame on u Mr.

  70. Writer well known parrot of IPS homogeny and here taking favour of “out of control “IGP. He is continuously spreading propaganda in well designed manner to establish IPS acceptability in CAPF which is at stake. Many stances are there where he violated the established government rules while in service and here giving lecturer about discipline to armed forces of India in media coloums.few years back his picture of taking guard of honour in civvies was in circulation which was depicted individual’s discipline and professionalism.It is right time of introspection for him and his IPS breathen that how much harms their brethren have done to CAPFs and their personnel just because of their greedness and self centric approach.

  71. Above writer clearly expresses:
    1) The CAPFs are fighting among themselves without caring for national interests under the able leadership of IPS.
    2) It is okay if IPS lobby fights for career aspirations of IPS officers. But others shouldn’t do the same for the sake of national interests.
    3) Those who qualify civil services are meritorious, rest of the world lacks merit.
    4) The writer desires reform. That’s a great thing to hear. All CAPF and IPS officers should sit together and change the existing state of affairs. It is really shameful to see them fighting.

  72. Says the IG who used a whole convoy to transfer his dog out of Kashmir…He was so fit for the BSF that he time and again tried to get his tenure extended and was ultimately booted out by the home ministry…He is IG provisioning now, but can suddenly become DG CRPF with his provisioning skills…But those who spend their life in crp, working day in and day out on the ground, will be in the same rank as before…And please leave this horse crap about UPSC and training etc…A general candidate may never qualify but another person of reserved category may do so and be ias/ips or what not…I am not stating this to start a caste war but just indicating that 1 exam is not a measure of ones potential…Ips are trained for policing, let them do that ( although the standard of policing is for everyone to see)…Leave the CAPFs alone…Ips have no organizational loyalty and that’s the main reason they should not be allowed to serve in the capfs…

  73. लेखक एक मूर्ख किस्म का आईपीएस ऑफिसर लगा.. यहां से पता लगता है के हिंदुस्तान की पुलिस सिस्टम का बेड़ा गर्क क्यों हो रखा है.. जब इस तरह के अज्ञानी आईपीएस ऑफिसर पुलिस में मौजूद हूं तो पुलिस से क्या उम्मीद कर सकते हो..? मैं इनको यह सलाह दूंगा की निष्पक्ष होकर आत्ममंथन करें ..अपने स्वार्थी एजेंडा को छोड़ देश हित के बारे में सोचें.. यह लोग झूठे एनकाउंटर करने वाले लोग हैं… इनको क्या पता के वास्तविक एनकाउंटर क्या होता है ..? और वास्तविक ऑपरेशन कैसे प्लान करते हैं और एग्जीक्यूट करते हैं ..? यह लोग हवा हवाई लोग हैं जिन्होंने अपनी जिंदगी में केवल एक बार एक इम्तिहान दिया होता है …उसके बाद यह परमात्मा की तरह सर्वज्ञ हो जाते हैं …इनके अपने राज्यों में पुलिस का बेड़ा गर्क है और यह सशस्त्र बलों में आकर अपनी अज्ञानता का प्रचार करते हैं

  74. Pse tell us ur contribution in improving the condition of SOs and their promotional aspects while in BSF. forces defense usually carry the load of state police to avoid legal controversies. At last, police, army etc all r having casualties. Doesn’t mean they don’t work. The author himself is disgruntled and submits the same logic which Lord dalhousie gave while ruling Indians.

  75. Typical thulla speak from this untrained cluless thulla Abhinav Kumar. What he needs is a good kick up his backside. As they say thullas of a feather flock together.

    • Col sahab lagta h SSB mein paise dekar bharti hue ho. By going through your words yeh confirm h

      • Paisa dekar police mae bharti hote honge …capf mae nahi.
        Apni police sambhal lo pehle, desh ka bhatta bitha rakha hai. Every common man knows how much corrupt and sensible police is.

  76. Good afternoon, I am happy that Mr. Abhinav, has written this. It again displays the brazenness with which he and his likes dismiss the hard work and sacrifices that CAPFs cadre officers have made. The singular grudge that the IPS have about OGAS being granted to CAPF cadre officers is evident to even an uninitiated reader. His eliticism and utter disregard for principles of justice are worrisome given the fact that he sits in a responsible position at this moment. Some glaring misinformation and assumptions in the article are put out for the readers for scrunity
    1. How is he so sure about Mr. Vijay Kr, IG Kashmir’s innocence? He is disputing a formal message given by a Commanding Officer of CRPF who was present in the meeting, where Mr. Vijay Kr, had uttered the alleged insults against CRPF. So much for his sense of fairness and concern for National Security. It would be wiser for him to raise such delicate issues at appropriate level.
    2. Mr. Abhinav, goes on to advice the DGs of the CAPFs, what he expects from them, so much for discipline.
    3. Mr. Abhinav uses the term Demonstrated Superior Quality of IPS. Really? This is what the Britishers thought about Indians. They somehow wanted to stick to the power. He carries the same colonial mindset, which thinks that it is they who possess all the worldly wisdom. Rest are just mindless minions who don’t have any rights and what more should dare have opinions.
    It is time they started thinking about National Interest, rather than maintaining supremacy of their service.
    Jai hind

  77. If there was even a little bit of genuinety in the words you jot down, I would have surely given a thumbs up. But it has now become clear that you don’t have any sense of shame for being a top brass of a highly degenerated and manipulative service profile. In your article you have digged the hole for yourself. If you are so concerned about abiding so called law and order then how can you forget the fact that these forces were created for achievement of special objectives that is the very legal sanction they have received. Their work profile , structural command everything has a specific shade. That’s why these officers are trained in respective academies of their own forces. You are selected via ( which you self proclaim to be demonstrably superior) a different exam, trained in a different academy on a different role with experience of a different workfront ,in what of your eligible senses do you confirm this to be in national interest.
    You being parachuted to a top notch table of an institution wherein you don’t have any primary work experience from the ground want to now turn the gun against these people who are vocal enough. And in what capacities do you claim that civil services brass is a highly demonstrated group of superior people , just because of the fact that an exam is strenuous enough and takes much longer time to clear never indicates that you are well equipped with leadership qualities. It merely highlights your study preparations that’s all. Leadership qualities are equipped with proper training and ground level knowledge which you acquire by growing within the cadre. But instead you who is tarnishing others on the ground that they are cynical enough in asking for what is right for them and what they fairly deserve , himself is being obnoxious about their state of affairs and has very nicely pushed the matter into the garb of national interest. Please do explain with another article if you have senses, in what ways will the national interest be affected if these forces have their own officer in their top leadership roles. Will it increase corruption , no no I think red tapism , or might be politics. Here in this context you can proudly say that civil servants do demonstrate top quality as these above-mentioned categories are your monopoly.
    I have read almost many articles by ex CAPF’s and serving personnel’s ,they all have provided enough respect to these legendary IPS officers who were the reasons for the nurturing of these forces. But instead you under the garb of these stalwarts have manipulated the forces and crossed lines in degenerating them. If you claim yourself to be so disciplined then why can’t you be quite and inquire into this incident and get the facts clear into your head . Instead what are you doing now posting such an article , you yourself have proved the fact that you are also no less than a cynic and batting for interest of your own cadre. Lack of discipline, inferior quality is the fuel in which you run your vehicle of manipulation and so called sense of professionalism. Move on with it and understand that your roles and seniority profiles are way redundant to even comment about the issue. Just contribute to the state policing system to make it better and efficient rather than jumping into these specialised forces.

    • Well put, Sir. It is unfortunate to see a serving IPS officer of IG rank speak so derogatorily about a retired ADG who is so senior to him both in rank and service.
      The pompous attitude of calling his own fraternity to be more competent just because they could clear a tougher exam shows how degraded the values are among people of his thought.
      No wonders the same fraternity stands disgruntled against the IAS officers who passed the same exam with better exam.
      I guess the tables turn against their odds in that case.

  78. I read the article without reading the authors name initially. When I went through the article I could clearly sense a totally biased leaning towards the IPS. To clarify I believe IPS is one of the best services in AIS which helps in nation building. But when it comes to CAPF they have not proved their metal infact CAPF for them is a Boss posting since only ranks DIG and above are posted ( From Info I gather) They have no idea of the actual predicament of the Constabulary and Inspectors . It is high time to let CAPF choose their own leaders from their own. IPS if they want to command CAPF why dont they join as AC like th regular officers and understand the root of organisation. A leader always leads by example. In this regard Indian Army has always held its standard till date. Colonels and Brigadiers actually go on ground for operations. Can anyone recall any IPS officer in the last 20 years of the same high ranks even go for a single operation. That clearly says it.

  79. Useless fake news portal All bloody divide and rule policy of bygone British s and their power hungry coloured Jackal.
    Why does media behave like a pet dog ?

  80. This person is disgruntled with early repartition from BSF. First of all look the miserable condition of state police who are most corrupted person. Another thing IPS are not required for law enforcement because these things can be managed by PPS officers which are equivalently or more professional than IPS. Another thing IPS are confused between centre posting or state so they are not able to perform as required. However in case of PPS officers they are totally engaged in law and order. There is also prestige issue with IPS that they will only want to meet only influencial person while this stigma is not attached with PPS. So for better coordination only PPS and subordinate officer must be recruited. IPS must be disband for betterment of law and order.

    • Not just Sood but the indisciplined , rebellious gang should face disciplinary action. It seems they a lot of free time to speak nonsense in social media and spread lies

  81. Excellent writeup, thorough arguement explaining the foolish immaturity ,lack of discipline & patriotism on behalf of the Sood ilk. Action is definitely called for against them

  82. The IPS officers have spoiled their image everywhere themselves. They are burden on the CAPFs like parasites on another body. We can’t accept them anymore. Please spare our CAPFs for our own officers. It’s shame on Indian institutes if they could not produce able officers to run the forces by their cadre officers. Just try to appoint a DG from within each CAPFs and see the ability. We’re not less than the IPS in any way.

  83. 1. Calling out a Force outsider for his untoward, unjustified and unruly comments passed against one’s own force is neither a sign of disgruntlement, nor shows any lack of discipline or decorum. A soldier wears his heart on his sleeves and doesn’t mince his words. He doesn’t see himself as a civil servant following “proper channels” when it comes to voicing his force’s grievances and defending his force.
    2. While painting a scandalous image of CAPF personnel funnelling money through NGOs to fight litigations and lobbying, one must also bring forth the facts about the hidden illegality of the famed IPS Association which has better resources at call and huge backing in the corridors of power. One must also put out the fact that CAPFs don’t have a Dispute resolution or appellate tribunal like most State police forces. So why is it that CAPF personnel litigating is to be looked down upon, when all that they have been litigating against is the enforcement of the honorable court’s orders passed in their favour. Such writing is outright obfuscation of the facts and hoodwinking the readers.
    3. Citing the signal of CO 53Bn where he informs (not complaints) to his seniors in CRPF (all IPS officers, incidentally) of the uncalled and loose remarks by an outsider as “strange” will understandably come easy to the likes of those who don’t understand the ethos of being part of a Force and being a life-long soldier at heart. An insult to the Force is an insult to the himself, there’s no two ways a soldier would see this.
    4. As far as finding militants and bringing them to justice in the Valley, the exploits of CRPF’s gallant Valley QAT are an eye-opener, let alone the achievements of other CAPF’s Valley-based units. Wounded pride is exactly what keeps alive the fire in a soldier.
    5. Yes, the CAPFs have targeted IG Kashmir for being biased against CRPF. Whereas the mention in your article of the same accusation by CRPF against JK Police is totally false and an effort to plant seeds of discord among sister agencies. Guess that sort of disciplined writing is in fashion nowadays.
    6. As to the argument of “constitutional imperatives of federalism”, the God-given mandate of the All India Services, and the “demonstrably superior quality of candidates” one need not search afar for similar reservations against it expressed by even the civil services like IRS, IPTAFS, ICAS, etc. All this is embodiment of the systemic rot in the bureaucracy and the hidden classism that propagates within. We would be highly indebted to you if you presented us with a single official GoI communication where the above cited demonstrable superior qualities are used to explicitly “reiterate the primacy of the IPS”. This primacy is a creature of your own mind.
    7. It is right to say that the career prospects of the Inspectors and Sub-inspectors in CAPFs must be bettered. But the last time one checked, aren’t their career progressions better in CAPFs than in the state police? So isn’t it a prudent question to ask at this stage as to why the need to correct this anomaly in the CAPFs without first correcting it in the different state police which clearly have a larger number of affected Inspectors and Sub-inspectors. Moreover, without bettering the career prospects of the “2% personnel” (read officers), what is the practical and functional worth of adding the Inspectors and Sub-inspectors to officer rank? It will most certainly aggravate the already huge stagnation in the CAPF officer ranks. Then again, difficult to imagine coming up with genuine solutions when one is so disassociated from ground realities.
    8. Your readers must realise that the zeal with which you defend your cadre is the same as that of the one which is on display by the officers of the various CAPFs. If we have the privilege of reading you, so should we be privileged to read the insights from the CAPFs.

    Good Day.

  84. This article also happens to be written by an ips officer lol. Stop with your justification. Your ips ilks comes into the CAPFs mostly at the rank of DIG and above . What will you know about grass root operations and how things work at the battalion level which is headed by a co who is ranked below you ? Absolute zero experience with the jawans yet your folks have all the administrative control over the entire capfs which is simply absurd.
    Most of The Capf cadre officers come into the organisation at the rank of AC at the age of about 23-27 and spend their entire career in their respective organisation while you guys come and start framing rules for them during your few years vacation to these forces . Ips hegemony should be done away with once and for all.

  85. बीएसएफ मेे डेपुटेशन एक्सटेंशन निवेदन खारिज होने के बाद आपको उत्तराखंड पुलिस मेे आईजी पर्सनल मैनेजमेंट लगाया है। कृपया अपना ज्ञान इस पहाड़ी राज्य में लगाएं। उत्तराखंड पुलिस के बहादुर जवानों को आपके ज्ञान की जरूरत है। 1996 मेे आपने एक परीक्षा पास कर ली जिसमे आरक्षण का लाभ मिला या किस्मत ठीक रही यह कहना मुश्किल है। खैर जो भी हो लेकिन कृपया अर्धसैन्य बलों की चिंता छोड़ कर अपने वर्तमान जॉब प्रोफ़ाइल की चिंता करेंगे तो बेहतर रहेगा साहब ।

    हम सहायक कमांडेंट के रूप में भर्ती हुए, जंगल, कश्मीर, उत्तर पूर्व के दुर्गम इलाकों में लगातार पिछले 9 वर्षों से डटे हुए हैं अपने पहाड़ जैसे इरादों के साथ और अपने बहादुर जवानों के साथ। अभी तक एक अदद प्रमोशन को तरस रहे हैं ताकि पारिवारिक जीवन भी मिल जाए। वहीं आप सिर्फ 18 वर्ष की बाली उमर में आईजी जैसे बड़े पद पर पहुंच गए ? कारण क्योंकि यह आपको इंपरियल पुलिस की ब्रिटिश कालीन व्यवस्था के अनुसार मिला सरकारी प्रसाद है जिसमें योग्यता केवल एक परीक्षा को पास करना होता था। ज्ञातव्य है कि तत्कालीन अखिल भारतीय सेवाएं केवल ब्रिटिश नागरिकों के लिए ही रिजर्व होती थी जिनको बाद मेे आम भारतीयों के लिए भी खोल दिया गया था।खैर मुझे इस विषय में कुछ नहीं कहना है मै सिर्फ इतना कहना चाहता हूं कि जिस अखिल भारतीय सेवा की आप दुहाई देते हो उसे अनुच्छेद 312 के तहत ही तो वर्णित किया है संविधान में । और संविधान मेे संशोधन भी हो सकता है और आईपीएस अधिकारियों की हालिया ” सब आउट ऑफ कंट्रोल” वाली परफॉर्मेंस को देखते हुए यह आवश्यक भी लग रहा है। आप अपने राज्य के पुलिस मुखिया रतुरी साहब से चर्चा कर कीजिए भारत सरकार और अर्ध सैन्य बलों को सलाह देने से पहले। आप जिस आमूलचूल परिवर्तन की बात कर रहे हो जिसमे जवान और अधीनस्थ अधिकारियों के कल्याण की बात निहित है उसे अपने राज्य में लागू करके उदाहरण पेश कीजिए। आप को लगाया भी इसी काम के लिए गया है। आईजी पीएम ।

    सर्वोच्च न्यायालय और भारत सरकार की केबिनेट के फैसले को पुराने सेवा नियमो का हवाला देकर कब तक रोक पाएगी आईपीएस लॉबी। वैसे भी आपके ही किसी समझदार साथी ने कहा था कुछ दिन पहले कि “after losing the battle in SC we are now hanging with nails”

    हम तो अभी भी बॉर्डर पर जवानों के साथ डटे हुए हैं महोदय यहां से पाकिस्तान अथवा बांग्लादेश तो भेज नहीं पाइएगा आप हमको। सिर्फ एक अदद पारिवारिक जिंदगी चाहिए वो आज नहीं तो कल मिल ही जाएगी।

    जय हिन्द। ईश्वर सद्बुद्धि दे।

  86. लेखक के निजी विचार बिलकुल औपनिवेशिक है । आम भाषा में लिखे तो, फुट डालो और राज करो । लेखक को परिवर्तित होते समय में आत्ममंथन कर प्रगतिशील होने की जरूरत है ।

  87. Very interesting remarks but completely off the mark. First, let me make it clear what happens on the ground. In the valley, where ever there is an operational requirement, more so in the hinterland, J&K police is the one which provides the intelligence and SOG is doing a good job. After that what happens, CRPF comes and cut off the area. Invariably none of these gets in touch with the militants who are to be neutralised. Now, the Army will come and lay the inner cardon and engage the terrorists. So it is the Army which fires on the terrorist, lays the inner cardon. Terrorists also know that they have all the time until the Army engages them. Can the Army do anything without active support from SOG which provides the actual location of terrorist and gets into communication with terrorist relatives, to persuade them to surrender? No surrender happens and the Army has to kill them. Let us discuss the leadership issue. What is the functioning model of three? In the Army, young officers lead from the front, you will find and that is why you will find so many casualties. Once officers lead, Jawans can take the risk. How is the leadership in CRPF and J&K Police? At Battalion level in CRPF, no IPS officer is posted so they are not part of any action. If one has to earn respect, you have to be in the action. IPS officers do not do that job. Did you find any IPS officer dying in any operation? Not a single one.None of them is actually involved in any operation except to provide administrative arrangement . if they have to move, they will require QRT for their protection thus put additional load on the men power. What about CRPF? Junior leadership is by Inspectors, in any case, the model which has been adopted is such that CRPF and Police do not confront the terrorists rather terrorists confront them. Who does the dirty job for the nation? Army. If that is the situation where is the leadership in Police and CRPF. SOG is doing a good job but not because of officers but because of lower-level officers. Same applies for CRPF, officers do the administration and enjoy power and perks. Time has come when one has to change its model. CRPF is not to be led in police pattern. It should be lead in Army pattern and the same applies to BSF. All these CAPF wants to enjoy the perks and privileges of police but wants to be seen at par with Army so invariably you will find them putting on Army like a uniform. IPS do not have any business to be in CAPF and these forces should have Army leadership if they want to be seen as a real force.

    • Very true! Same narrative given by my father & my cousins who spent several years in the Valley, serving in Army and fighting terrorists at different places !

  88. Kicked out of BSF,he has started mudslinging against the officers who have fearlessly started
    a compaign against poor and incompetent IPS leadership in CAPF.He is trying to justify immature, unwarranted and false remarks on role of CRPF by another IPS officer of his class who served in CRPF and still enjoying perks from CRPF.He is even trying to sabotage the chain of command by suggesting govt.to ignore CAPF officers for their legitimate dues and give preference to subordinates in CAPF. Another method to create division in rank and file.Officers of his class can stoop any low.

  89. Who is the writer? An IPS Officer. Whose welfare he is talking about? Incompetent IPS officers want to continue and grab power in CAPFs. Whom is he defending? A batchmate of his from Academy.(who once said on social media platform to a lady officer ,Asst. Comdt. Rank from CRPF that his batchmate(Same IG Vijay Kumar ,who was then holding post of IG in CRPF) will make him understand better regarding IPS officers and rules and regulations).
    Now lets throw any set of questions, who is holding all decision -policy making posts, who holds DG post,who holds powerful postings , w(yes the perks come as add on – Plush postings in NCR,AC rooms, So much of seva bhakti ,kittie parties and god knows what not)- Answer to these questions is again -IPS Officers….and yes they hold these post not on merit of their experience in the domain of border,internal security, VIP security …no no…thats a pathetic reason..they holds the post just because at an old age of 30 these oldies cracked an exam and just on that exam sake , claim to be superior. Yes an exam at 30 age ….make them all super god to claim post better deserving better understanding than cadre officers who when young command their men, rose to ranks, understand the problems but not rose too high just because these oldies come at top posts claiming to better knowledge than cadre officers on the basis of an exam at an age of 30.

  90. Hey Param Gyani IG Sahab, agar aap is विषय पर टिप्पणी करने के लिए इतने सक्षम होते तो आपको उत्तराखंड में आईजी प्रोविजनिंग नहीं बनाया गया होता। आईजी range होते आप।

  91. pls first check the fact of no gallentry in Naxal theatre to CRPF personnel.Not expected from civil service qualified and highly learned IPS officer 😀

  92. Hahahaha…Once you write something, it’s mere an another effort to expose your bankruptcy of intellect in you.Its shows how immature you are and how malicious your intention is. Thank God you are not in CAPF anymore.

    While u were just eating apples in capital nd Become IG in 18 years of service , Mr.Sood ADG has given his 35 years as a front line warrior to wear rank and decorations.Dont you see disparity and murder of natural justice .
    Present recruitment rules were framed by IPS lobby so that CAPF cadre can be denied OGAS/NFFU in the absence of attributes but Justice prevailed at apex court and you were further exposed.
    Your lobby was again exposed when Delhi High court denied to vacate stay on deputation of IPS (DIG/IG / ADG rank) but shamelessly your are still singing anthem of AIS without logic.
    What Mr.Sood has said about Vijay Kr is absolutely right.The same officer Vijay Kr has always been found in inferiority complex, a less confident and egoistic IG and he himself claim everything is “out of control” (plz watch his viral video).Brave CAPF cadre from Jawan to officer will not accept any insulting remark on elite armed force of union.
    You continue with spreading poison and hatered and I promise to expose you everywhere.Best wishes
    Regards

    • Stop lying Khan ! This is what the Hon’ble SC had said :
      ”it is specifically mentioned that by
      granting Organised Group ‘A’ Central Services to the RPF (it
      should be read as CAPF), the rights of the IPS, if any, for their
      appointment on deputation on some of the posts cannot be said
      to have affected. ”

      “Still, it is
      observed that while deciding the appeals, this Court has made no
      observations with respect to the right of the IPS Officers for
      deputation, in terms of the recruitment rules, if any, as the same
      was not the controversy and/or issue before this Court and the
      decision of this Court shall be construed with respect to grant of
      Organised Group ‘A’ Central Services only.”

      Sood’s behaviour shows that he was not worthy of wearing uniform , He is a disgrace to Uniform and BSF … Shocking that such indisciplined people could also rise to rank of ADG

      • Sir, Every one of the so called direct entry officers think they are future DG, irrespective of their competency

  93. I have known IGP Vijay Kumar as an outstanding officer who has courage to call a spade a spade. The remarks he made in a closed door meet should not have been leaked. Knowing his sincerity I have no doubt that his remarks were meant to achieve better results and not to denigrate a sister organisation.

    It is sad that some vested interests by their utterances are damaging the synergy with which all forces have worked in J&K for decades. We are passing through challenging times.

    Please end this futile debate in the interest of the nation.

  94. IG साहेब , बहुत समय मिलता है आपको आर्टिकल लिखने का…लेकिन इस आर्टीकल में कितने एकांगी होकर , पक्षपाती होकर आप लिखे हैं , आत्म-मंथन से ही आपको ज्ञात होगा ! हे सर्वज्ञाता…आप भी आने सर्विंग Dg’s को आर्टिकल के माध्यम से ज्ञान दे रहे हैं , क्या ये insubordination नही होगा , वैसे आपने इ विजय साहेब का वो out of control वाला वीडियो देखा हैं , हर नही तो you tube पर सुलभ हैं , देख लीजियेगा , आनन्द आएगा ! हा , आपने केंद्रीय सशस्त्र बलों (CAPF) में जवानों के करियर की इतनी चिंता व्यक्त की हैं , काश आप पुलिस के जवानों और अधीनस्थों की इतनी चिंता करते , काश उनके ट्रेनिंग , वेलफेयर और प्रोमोशन के लिए इतने सजग रहते तो , क्या बात थी ! आत्म-मंथन करिए साहेब , सच से सामना हो जाएगा , ज्यादा मुश्किल भी नही हैं !

  95. लेखक के कथनी और करनी मे जमीन आसमान का अंतर है। केंद्रीय सशस्त्र पुलिस बन के इंस्पेक्टर और सब इंस्पेक्टर को मोहरा तो बनाना तो चाह रहे है लेकिन स्टेट पुलिस के इंस्पेक्टर और सब इंस्पेक्टर की दुर्दशा की कोई चिंता नही है लेखक को।

    इंस्पेक्टर और सब इंस्पेक्टर की बात तो छोड़िए राज्य पुलिस सेवा से आये अधिकारियों (Dy SP) के प्रोन्नति के अवसरों का गला घोंट कर रखा है 1% आई पी एस बाबुओं ने। लेखक महोदय आप चिंता मत कीजिये बहुत जल्द ही राज्य पुलिस सेवा के अधिकारी भी आपके विरुद्ध युद्ध का आगाज करने वाले है, उधर भी सुगबुगाहट तेज है किंतु आपको अंदाजा नहीं है क्योंकि आप वास्तविकता से परे है।

    समय बदल रहा है लेखक से निवेदन है कि अपनी मानसिकता बदले, कुंठा का शिकार मत बने, अन्य सेवा के अधिकारियों की कुर्बानी देकर अपनी महत्वाकांक्षा को साधने की पुरानी कला से बाहर निकलें।

    एक बात और केंद्रीय सशस्त्र पुलिस बल के कैडर अधिकारी अपने जवानों अपने अधीनस्थ अधिकारियों की आपसे ज्यादा चिंता करते है, आप फुट डालने का कितना भी प्रयास कर ले सफल नहीं होंगे क्योंकि हम जमीन से जुड़े है, वातानुकूलित कमरे मे बैठकर टिप्पणी नहीं देते।

    फुट डालो और राज करो की नीति से बाहर निकलिये, और हाँ पुनः निवेदन है कि स्पष्ट जरूर कीजिए किअपने कॉन्स्टेबल और हवलदार के प्रोन्नति के कितने अवसर रहने दिये है आपने? राज्य पुलिस मे भर्ती होने वाला कॉन्स्टेबल एस पी नही तो डी एस पी तो बन ही जाता होगा? इतना अवसर तो बना ही दिया होगा आपने??

    • A failed and corrupt cadre of system due to only such kind of officer who lives only with fake ego .

  96. This is an angry polemic that does not push the debate forward in any way. Fault finding without letting the readers know why the IPS Officers are better placed to lead the CAPFs indicate that the writer does not have an argument in favour of his own cadre. Changing the subject to Subordinate Officers only reinforces the paucity of positive points in favour of the IPS cadre.

    The final straw is the bogeyman of superiority of the Civil Services intake. One exam, one time does not in anyway indicate or prove a lifetime of merit.

      • Hey wannabe, Abhinavji, remember your only claim to fame within the uniform fraternity was a picture of a BSF unit quarter guard, where a track pants/shirt and sports cap clad crazy man was being honoured.
        Haven’t seen or heard enough of you ever since….. Good BSF was able to see your back. Please entertain us with similar pictures again…..coz writing a piece in a newspaper is too serious a business for some over ambitious kindergarten going kid. Your Oxford doesn’t impress me…..coz ur piece is as lowly as the gown u donned that day for Quarter Guard.. Get over your colonial hangover.
