A day after the review of Home department by chief minister Vasundhara Raje, work has started at war footing to improve the efficiency of the police and clear the old deadlock over promotions and new recruitments.
Home department’s Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) of cleared 33 cases of the officials on Sunday. The DPC recommended promotions of all these 33 officials. These 33 cases included officials from the SP to ADG level. Many have been recommended promotion in selection grade while many will be promoted to higher rank. The list will be sent to the CM for final approval. Sources said that transfers of police officials will also take place in next couple of days.
The work on preparation of transfer list is almost complete.
Meanwhile a special letter has been issued to all officials by the Police headquarters (PHQ) restricting them not to keep any file with them for more than three days. Highly placed sources in the department informed that decision has been taken so that the investigations can be expedited up in the state and cases could meet the fate.
In the letter it has been categorically mentioned that no official will keep the file for more than three days. The file has to reach the next destination. Many times the files remains with the official for a long due to which the cases do not get the pace. It will not only reduce the corruption level but timely completion of work would be a great relief to the people.
Sources further said that government is also mulling over a tracking system where the updates and position of the file will be displayed online. Though proposal in this regard has not been put up and entire process may take a long time.
