Cabinet approves cadre review of ITBP

The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the cadre review of Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), an exercise that was pending for almost 18 years.

The decision for the cadre review of Group 'A' General Duty (Executive) cadre and Non-General Duty cadre of ITBP was taken by the Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Two new posts of Additional Director General (ADG), equivalent to a Lieutenant General in the Army, have been sanctioned to head the new commands. A total of 60 new posts in Group-A executive general duty cadre and two posts in Group-A non-general duty cadre at various levels from Assistant Commandant to ADG for enhancing the supervisory staff have been approved.

The last cadre review of ITBP took place in 2001 when the strength of the force was 32,000. The current strength of the ITBP is approximately 90,000.

The cadre review creates new posts and will help improving efficiency and working of the personnel of ITBP, which is mandated to guard 3,488 km India-China border.
