PDP Youth President Demands Cadre Review of KPS



The youth president of Peoples Democratic Party Friday demanded review of Kashmir Police Service (KPS) cadre.

“The KPS Cadre proposal file which is lying in the home department since last one year needs to be pursued and KPS cadre be created to benefit more than 500 gazetted state police officers in order to boost the morale of direct police recruits of the state, said Waheed Ur Rehman Para in a statement this evening.

Appealing the state government, which his party is running along with BJP, to consider the genuine issue of KPS officers, Para said, “the KPS cadre proposal (career Planning of State Police Officer) has already been sent to Home department but is lying unattended. I appeal the government to consider their long pending legitimate matter.”

“The long pending genuine demand of the KPS officers needs to be redressed. KAS has a cadre of its own while KPS officers are without any cadre and the issue has been neglected by previous governments,” he said.

He further added, “the proposal of setting up of KPS cadre like that of already existing KAS cadre on the lines of State Police cadre in other states like Punjab Police Service, Orissa Police service, Himachal Police Service has already been discussed and the urgent need to have the proposal executed felt by PHQ.”


  1. The long pending demand needs to be executed at the earliest. Like the KAS Cadre when the Combined Examination to KAS cadre is conducted their no difference between KAS and KPS service Officer,s it is only the Police Department mainly manned by IPS Officers who do not wish so.I appreciate the efforts being done by the Youth President,PDP. hope the suffering of the KPS Officers will be heard positively by the combined PDP, BJP Govt. at present setting an example to boost the morale of the KPS Officers.
