SRINAGAR — In a significant development, the Government of India has issued an order for the premature repatriation of IPS officer Rakesh Balwal to the Manipur cadre.
The decision was made official through an order issued by the Deputy Secretary to the Government of India. As per the order, Balwal, who belongs to the IPS (MA-2012) cadre, has been repatriated from the AGMUT (Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram, and Union Territories) cadre to Manipur.
This decision comes after a proposal from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), and it received approval from the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet, marking the culmination of a process that took nearly a month.
Rakesh Balwal, who had been serving as the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) in Srinagar, will now assume his new responsibilities in the Manipur cadre.
This move is expected to have significant implications for law enforcement and administration in both regions.
