No separate examination for selection of IPS officers desirable: Govt
Based on the feedback received from UPSC, DoPT and majority of state governments, the Centre has decided that there is no need of a separate examination for the selection of IPS officers by delinking it from the Civil Services Examination. It was the 161st Report on Demands for Grants (2012-13) which made a recommendation for exploring the possibility of conducting a separate examination for IPS where the attitude and aptitude of the candidate must be thoroughly tested, besides their mental makeup and inclination for policing. The same was also reiterated in the 163rd report of the department-related parliamentary standing committee on home affairs regarding working of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, Hyderabad. As many as six states have recommended for a separate examination.
