Yogi govt introduces compulsory retirement for police officers above 50

yogi-

LUCKNOW: The Uttar Pradesh government has introduced compulsory retirement for police officers above 50 years of age. The move is aimed at bringing a more youthful aura to the department and thereby assuring more efficiency. Screening work for this has started. The track record of the officers who completed 50 years on March 30, 2023, will be subjected to strict scrutiny.

It will be only after the screening trust that the decision will be taken about introducing compulsory retirement. The current order says that the list of officers subject to compulsory retirement should be submitted to the police headquarters by November 30. Police officers aged 50, and with a history of corruption and ill repute will have to exit the forces immediately.

In recent years, hundreds of police officers have been forced to retire by the Uttar Pradesh government. The Yogi government earlier brought provisions to replace officers or employees who lack proper decision-making skills and asked these voids to be filled with young promising officers. According to reports, police officers with a background of corruption and misconduct will face retirement as a punitive measure. The government say this is a cleansing act to make the department more efficient and trustworthy for the public.
