The Supreme Court has given great relief to the Central Armed Police Force officers Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Force (BSF), ITBP and CISF etc. on Tuesday. Now the officials of these Armed Forces personnel will also get the benefit of financial and upgradation similar to the Group A Group executives. The bench, headed by Justice Rohinton F Nariman, has upheld the Delhi High Court verdict rejecting the petition of the Central Government.
The High Court had ordered the CRPF, BSF, ITBP, CISF, as an organized force, to give its officials financial gain and upgradation, like Group-A officials. After this order of the Supreme Court, the officers of CRPF, BSF, ITBP, CISF etc. will also be treated equally as Group-A executives. Now, half-hearted behavior will not be done with them. Also, these officials will also benefit in promotions.
The order of the apex court is a setback for IPS officers. Now senior IPS officers will be sent only on deputation to the CRPF, BSF, ITBP, CISF etc. So far no one’s rank IPS officers were sent on deputation to the semi-military force.
In fact, officials of the Armed Forces officers were displeased at the fact that IPS officers were sent as parachute officers to deputation in semi-civilian forces. After this order, the anger of the officers of the Armed Forces was overcome. Now the officers of the Armed Forces have also cleared the way for internally higher posts.
