S.N. Borkar tipped to succeed Madiyal

By K.V. Subramanya

BANGALORE, JUNE 9. The Director-General of Police (CoD), S.N. Borkar, is likely to succeed T. Madiyal, as the Director-General and Inspector-General of Police (DG and IGP). Mr. Madiyal will retire on June 30.

The Director-General of Police (Fire Services), M.D. Singh, who is the senior-most IPS officer of the Karnataka cadre, may not make it to the top post as he retires on July 31.

Mr. Borkar is an IPS officer of the 1968 batch and is Mr. Singh's immediate junior.

According to sources, the Government is yet to take a decision on Mr. Borkar's appointment.

Fifty-nine-year-old Mr. Borkar hails from Karwar in Uttara Kannada district and is a former Indian Army officer.

Although successive governments had selected officers for the post of the DG and IGP by taking seniority into consideration, there have been instances when seniority was overlooked.

The S.M. Krishna Government appointed Mr. Madiyal, a 1966 batch officer, as the DG and IGP in September 2002, although he was junior to the then Director-General of Police (Fire Services), Jaiparkash, an officer of the 1965 batch, who had five months of service left.

The J.H. Patel Government had overlooked the seniority of two officers, Subashchandra and C. Dinakar, and appointed T. Srinivasulu to the top post. While Mr. Subashchandra went on protest leave, Mr. Dinakar moved the court questioning the appointment of Mr. Srinivasulu. Subsequently, Mr. Dinakar won the legal battle and became the DG and IGP.
