Chandigarh: In a morale boosting exercise, the Punjab Police has promoted over 4,500 constables and officers up to the rank of inspectors to remove stagnancy.

It was found that denial of timely promotions due to various administrative hurdles like non-finalisation of seniority lists was adversely affecting the morale of the force, Punjab DGP P S Gill said here Tuesday.

"The focus was first to finalise seniority lists and then methodically remove other hurdles... A special cell was constituted to liaise with Personnel, Legal Remembrancer and Advocate General office," he said.

The DGP said from January this year a total 494 sub-inspectors have been promoted as inspectors, out of which 387 promotions have been made in executive police and 104 such promotions have been made in the armed police.

He informed that 835 ASIs have been promoted as sub-inspectors, 1046 head constables as ASIs and 1600 constables have been made head constables.

He also said more promotions would be made in near future.

The DGP said State's Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal had earlier asked Punjab Police to identify impediments affecting the morale of the force and systematically remove those causes.
