Result out of Mann’s meeting with Shah; Kaur replaces Singh as city beautiful SSP
Kanwar Inder Singh/ March 5,2023
On March 2,2023 Punjab chief minister had met the union home minister Amit Shah at New Delhi and had raised some key issues with him. Amongst other issues, he had also urged the Union Home Minister to appoint Punjab cadre officer as SSP in Chandigarh, which has been pending since long.
Within two days, the Appointment Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) has approved the name of Punjab cadre 2013 batch IPS office Kanwardeep Kaur, for the coveted post of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Chandigarh on a three-year deputation.
Kanwardeep Kaur, studied in Chandigarh and Mohali, and is a graduate of Punjab Engineering College (PEC).
She is currently heading the Ferozepur police and most probably is going to take the charge of her new posting, on Monday. She was the first SSP of Malerkotla district. She has also served as the SSP of Kapurthala.
Earlier the names of Sandeep Kumar Garg (2012 batch), Dr Akhil Chaudhary (2012 batch) and Bhagirath Singh Meena (2013 batch) were sent to the ministry. The ministry of home affairs had rejected one name out of a panel of three sent on December 15, 2022, asking the UT to send a fresh name. The administration asked Punjab to make the change, prompting the state government to back Kanwardeep Kaur, who had served as Kapurthala and Malerkotla SSP.
Her name is added in the list by replacing the name of Dr Akhil Chaudhary (2012 batch) in January this year.
Now, she is selected by the ministry of home affairs from a panel of those three IPS officers sent by the Punjab govt.
Also, she will be the second woman SSP of Chandigarh after Nilambri Vijay Jagdale (2008 batch) who served in the post between 2017 and 2020.
Result out of Mann’s meeting with Shah; Kaur replaces Singh as city beautiful SSP. The post of SSP (UT) has been vacant since the repatriation of Kuldeep Singh Chahal, a 2009-batch IPS officer, on December 12, 2022, ten months before the completion of his three-year tenure allegedly over charges of misconduct.
