Major concerns and reforms[editPromotion to IPS[edit]According to the Indian Police Service (Appointment by Promotion) Regulations, 1955, PPS officers are eligible for promotion to IPS after completion of eight years of service. But in reality, officers are generally promoted to the IPS after two and half decades in service. Unlike their counterparts in PCS who get promoted to IAS almost five years early.

Political influence[edit]

Directly recruited IPS officers often complain that promotee PPS officers are given preference in field postings due to their close proximity to politicians which they form in two decades of their service. Since the state government was often ruled by regional parties, many politicians allegedly fix 'their men' on important inspector general and deputy inspector general rank positions.


Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the first Home Minister of India praised Punjab Police saying,[37]

I know the difficulties and disaster which overtook the Punjab Police during the period of partition. Your force was depleted terribly and quickly you had to begin from a scratch. After such a partition and the period of communal disturbances a parallel of which is not known, you had to face great difficulties and you have in fact performed a miracle in reorganizing your force in such a short time and in such a splendid manner
