The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has written to the Maharashtra Home Department requesting cooperation in filling up several of its lower level as well as technical posts at the earliest so as to get its Mumbai branch functional.
The office of the DGP, Maharashtra, on Thursday issued a circular, instructing willing officers to apply for posts of additional superintendent of police and below, as well as several non-police posts.
The move comes after Director General (NIA) S C Sinha wrote to Amitabh Rajan, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) in November 2012. He listed the vacant posts in NIA and requested that suitable officers be recommended for deputation. According to the letter, NIA currently requires two additional superintendents, three deputy superintendents, six inspectors, six sub-inspectors, eight assistant sub-inspectors, seven head constables and 10 constables. NIA is also looking to fill up posts like technical forensic expert, fingerprint expert, explosives expert, biology expert, photographer and crime scene assistant.
"May I request for your kind co-operation and assistance by providing us with a panel of Maharashtra Police officers/officials in the above ranks and one rank lower for deputation to NIA, which will also help the state police in its fight against terrorism," Sinha has said in his letter.
In March 2012, Sinha wrote to the then Maharashtra Chief Secretary Ratnakar Raikwad. The letter written to Rajan was more specific in terms of vacant posts.
