He said the recommendation was made on the basis of an existing Police Act which has given mandate to the commission to recommend names to the government.
Those shortlisted persons for the top police job are Kulbir Krishan (1976 batch), Subhas Goswami (1977 batch), Jayanta Narayan Choudhury (1978 batch), D K Pathak and P J P Hanneman (both 1979 batch).
