– Centre has allocated a total of 14 officers against the request of 30 officers in CSE 2014, 2015 & 2016
– Out of 131 IPS posts under regular recruitment, only 116 are in position and 26 are out on central deputation
– Only 90 officers are in position in the state against the total strength of 182, leading to a 52% vacancy.
