20,000 UP cops transferred

In the biggest reshuffle till date on a single day, the Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday transferred 20,324 constables.

Officials said the transfers were ordered following a March 20 government order wherein the SP government lifted the ban on posting of constables in areas adjoining their home town. Following the policy reversal, the UP police had set rolling a phased option scheme for the constabulary. The policemen were asked to submit with police headquarters three options of their choice for preferred posting.

IG of Police (Establishment) Sandeep Salunke said the exercise was challenging since it involved balancing the aspirations of the constables.
