Due To Poor Performance, Modi Govt Retires Two IPS Officers

Published on 17 January, 2017 at 8:19 pm By

In a rare and strict move, the Modi government compulsorily retired two IPS officers on the basis of a performance review required to be held at the end of 15 and 25 years of service under the All-India service rules.

The two IPS officers — Raj Kumar Devangan, belonged to 1992 batch of Chhattisgarh cadre and Mayank Sheel Chohan from 1998 batch of AGMU cadre.

They have put in sub-optimal performance by the concerned state cadre on the basis of their service records, ACRs and assessment of their seniors.

The final action was taken by the home ministry which retired them from service “in public interest”.



“The ministry in exercise of powers conferred by sub rule-2 of rule 16 of all India service rules 1958 has prematurely retired Shri Chohan and Shri Dewangan in public interest after the approval of Appointments committee of cabinet,” a government order in this regard said.

Chohan was posted as SP vigilance in Arunachal Pradesh and had gone “missing” in 2012. Police investigations had later established that he had staged his own abduction drama.

These officers have been given three months salary along with compulsory retirement orders.

It is rare to see an IPS officer getting ‘compulsory retired.’ Last time it happened nearly 10 to 15 years ago and involved officers of Maharashtra cadre.

The order for their compulsory retirement says that the Central government has the power to force an officer to retire after giving him a notice of three months to defend himself against the allegations made.

As per rules, the bureaucrat found fit for compulsory retirement is either given at least three months notice in writing or three month’s pay and allowances in lieu of such notice.
