Police constables now will be able to take competitive exam for the post of PSI
Gandhinagar, 30 May 2012
In what may be regarded as a historic or path-showing step, Chief Minister Narendra Modi has decided to allow police constables of the state police force to appear in the special competitive exam for the post of PSI.
Giving details of the move state government spokespersons Health Minister Jay Narayan Vyas and Minister of State for Energy Saurabh Patel said that till now, only assistant police sub-inspectors and head constables, having spent three years in service, were able to take the special competitive exam for the promotion to the post of police sub-inspector (mode-2). “But now with this decision even the constables, who are on the lowest rung in the police force, would be able to take the exam and directly become PSI, provided they have spent 15 years in service”, spokespersons said.
Gujarat is first in the country to introduce such a provision. The decision has opened up the doors of becoming police sub-inspectors for the police constables who are experienced and efficient. This will motivate the individuals in constable cadre as well will increase the efficiency of the police force. “Even if a constable does not succeed in the exam, the knowledge he get while preparation will help him in performing his duties in better ways”, spokespersons said.
