Shifting of Head Quarters of IG of Police South Coastal Region from Guntur to Hyderabad


The Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, in the letters,  has stated that there are 4 Regional Inspectors General of Police for the Regions of Hyderabad, Rayalaseema, Warangal and North Coastal Andhra whose Headquarters are located at Hyderabad. The Regional IGP is a staff officer to the Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, to coordinate administrative matters pertaining to the respective Range DIsG and SsP under his Jurisdiction. He is also responsible for maintenance of L&O, crime control, Internal Security, enforcement of all legislations including special laws empowering Police force and various other public services in the Region concerned. The DGP and other Additional DGsP have to conduct meetings frequently with the Regional IGsP to review L&O, Crime, administrative, organization and training matters etc. Hence the Regional IGsP are very much required to be available to Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad and other staff officers for better coordination and administration.

The Headquarter of Inspector General of Police, South Coastal Region is located at Guntur away from Hyderabad. The Regional IGsP Inspector General of Police except South Coastal Region are available for all coordination and review meetings in Chief Office at Hyderabad, whereas the South Coastal Region remains unrepresented as the Headquarter of IGP South Coastal Region is at Guntur. Inspector General of Police South Coastal Region has to be called frequently to Hyderabad for these meetings causing substantial waste of time and dislocation of work. In view of the delegation of Administrative and Financial powers to Regional Inspector General of Police which were exercised by the Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, there is an imperative need to have the Regional Offices at State Headquarters.

The Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, has further stated that the nature of work being performed by Inspector General of Police South Coastal Region is essentially the same as the work being performed by DIsG of Police in other Police Ranges across the State, who are junior to the IGP South Coastal Region. As such, it would be administratively convenient to have the Headquarter of Inspector General of Police South Coastal Region at Hyderabad instead of Guntur, like the other 4 Regional IsGP. Then all the Regional IsGP would be available for the Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad and other staff officers all the time for various coordination and review meetings being held by them. It will also ensure uniformity across all the Regions in the State as all the 5 Regions would then be having their h/q at one place in Hyderabad.

The Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, in the above circumstances, has requested to shift the Headquarter of Inspector General of Police South Coastal Region from Guntur to Hyderabad to maintain uniformity with other Regional IsGP and the Inspector General of Police will be accommodated in the O/o Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, duly posting an officer of the rank of DIG of Police for Guntur Range from the existing cadre strength of Andhra Pradesh State to carry out the duties at Range Office similar to other 8 Police Ranges in the State. He has stated that there is no financial implication involved in this proposal as it is purely a matter of administrative convenience and the DIG of Police will be accommodated in the existing Range Office of Guntur and no separate office setup is required in this regard.

Government, after examination of the issue hereby accord permission to the Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, to shift the Headquarters of Inspector General of Police South Coastal Region from Guntur to Hyderabad and to accommodate in the O/o Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, subject to simultaneously posting/taking over of a DIG from the existing Cadre Strength of IPS, prior to relieving the Inspector General of Police on relocation to Hyderabad.

The Director General of Police, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad, is requested to take necessary action accordingly in the matter.

This order issues with the concurrence of Fin (Expr.Home-I) Department vide their U.O.No.5400/142/Expr.Home-I/2013, dated: 20.03.2013.
