On October 19th, 2018, the Uttar Pradesh state government declared fresh vacancies of around 57,000 constables for different wings of the State Police force, with the inclusion of the Fire department. These latest vacancies will drive up the total number of constable recruitments to around 1 lakh by July 2019. Earlier this year, the recruitment process of 42,000 constables commenced and is ongoing.
As per the press conference that was held on Friday, 19th October 2018, the Director General of Police OP Kumar and Principal Secretary Home, Arvind Kumar, said that they expect the 2 sets of recruitments to be completed by July 2019. Also, they mentioned that both the recruitment drives would fill up half of the UP state’s constabulary vacancies.
Out of the 56,808 vacancies, 32,000 would join the Police force and 19,216 are to be absorbed in the Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC). Moreover, 1,924 and 3,638 (including 626 women and 3012 men) jail warders will be employed as well. Another 102 constables on horseback are to be recruited too. Besides, 20% of the total vacancies are for women only.
Also, they affirmed, to encourage the Police squad, there was an announcement of 37,575 promotions in the different Police ranks. In the year 2018, there were promotions of 2,192 as Inspectors; 7,500 joined the ranks of Sub-Inspectors; and 2,465 became Head Constables.
They further alleged that the induction process for the several police departments will commence in the month of November 2018. In January 2019, the related examinations will be held. Presently, around 29,000 constables are receiving training in the state. Due to the shortfall of cops, around 74 PAC companies had to shut operations. However, after the new vacancies get filled, there are plans of restoring 30 of them.
