Power decentralization in police

Finally, the Assam government has started decentralizing the police force. The Superintendents are free to transfer inspectors or lower-ranked officials without any permission from the DGP.

According to official sources, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Tuesday has given final seal of approval. Now the SPs are competent to transfer police officials in the rank of Inspector and below within their district limits.

Earlier, the DGP's prior approval was required before transfer of such officials. The DGP's approval has to be obtained in case any such officers having not completed two years in their place of posting.
