SRINAGAR: The posting of 2011 batch Kashmir Police Service (KPS) officers, who successfully completed period of probation, is on cards.
Reliable sources said that within few weeks the home department is scheduled to adjust the 2011 batch of KPS officers. I think within 10 to 15 days, the 2011 batch that recently passed the mandatory confirmation test will get adjusted suitably, a well placed officer in the home department said.
Sources in the department said that almost the entire of batch of KPS2011 are still serving as probationary officers even though they have already completed the probation period and the requisite confirmation test.
Few officers in the batch when contacted said that their counterparts in civil administration and even their juniors in the civil administration have already been posted suitably while as the police officers of 2011-batch KPS are still awaiting adjustment.
Even after serving for over 19 months as probationers and passing confirmation test some three months back, we are still regarded as probationer DySPs, said one of the officers of 2011 batch of KPS, pleading anonymity.
Pertinently, 76 candidates had qualified for KPS in 2011 who completed their probation on June 14 this year and the batch appeared for its confirmation test on September 6. (KNS)
