In Akhilesh's UP, 43 IPS officers transferred more than 40 times
In Uttar Pradesh, 43 IPS officers including two DGs - Vinod Kumar Singh (43 times) and Arun Kumar Gupta (45 times), 14 ADGs, 13 IGs, 10 DIGs and 4 SPs have been transferred more than 40 times in their career, an RTI reply has revealed.

According to the information obtained by social activist Dr Nutan Thakur, the record for maximum transfers among IPS officers in the state seems to be currently held by 1983 batch K L Meena who has been transferred 59 times, followed by Kamal Saxena 48 times and Vijay Singh 47 times.

Due to these frequent transfers, the average number of transfers of 14 DGs in UP comes at 36.4. An IPS officer becomes DG after around 32 years of service. Hence, on average these DGs were transferred at least once in a year. Similarly the ADGs in UP have been transferred an average 35.9 times so far in their career. This figure stands at 31.8 for IGs and 29.7 for DIGs.

This is the ground reality in UP as opposed to the Supreme Court order in Prakash Singh case which says that the minimum tenure of police officers shall be two years.
