Can CAPF AC become IPS?


The most talked-about question when it comes to students preparing for defence exams is Can a CAPF ACs become IPS Officer? Every student dream of becoming an IPS Officer and serve the country. In this article, you will get to know if an Assistant Commandant can become an IPS Officer in the future.

This question came around in the year 2019 when the Supreme Court granted the Organised Group A Service (OGAS) categorization to the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) that include CRPF, BSF, CISF, ITBP, and SSB.

The organised service tag allows a service to have its own recruitment rules and enhanced avenues for promotion, pay, command and deputation of its officers.

A committee headed by the border management secretary of the home ministry met to discuss a 2017 UPSC proposal, which had suggested making changes to the CAPF (assistant commandant) Examination, through which the central police officers are recruited.

The exam has not been reviewed since 2003.

However, in addition to revising the syllabus and pattern of the central police forces exam, the committee made a range of recommendations including combining its exam with the existing civil services exam in order to forge a better synergy between all the allied services like the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), the Indian Police Service (IPS), the Indian Forest Service (IFoS) and others.

However, the recommendation is under consideration and a final decision is yet to be taken.

Till then, you all should prepare well because the exam is approaching. DefenceAdda has integrated the Complete Batch for UPSC CAPF ACs 2021 to help you ace this exam.
