Preparation to end “rankers” exam in police, proposal to amend rules sent to government

Preparations are being made to finish the rankers exam in Uttarakhand Police Department. Till now 33 percent of the posts (head constable and Daroga) were filled through rankers examination, but now the police headquarters has sent a proposal to the government to amend the existing rules. After the amendment, the release of new recruitment will be issued.

As per the existing rules, 34 per cent of the posts are through direct recruitment. Apart from this, 33 percent rankers are filled through examination and 33 percent posts are filled through promotion. But now that won't happen. For this, the Police Headquarters is considering 50 percent direct recruitment and 50 percent filling up of posts. For this the existing rules need to be amended.

According to the officials, as soon as this amendment is done, a release will be issued for the upcoming recruitments. This year, recruitment is to be done for about two and a half thousand posts. This is the reason why this recruitment is getting delayed till now.

Rankers exam result not come for seven months

Rankers recruitment exam was held in February last. It was conducted for the first time through the Subordinate Selection Service Commission but till now the result of this examination has not come. The participating policemen are still waiting for the result.
