Sending across a clear message to bureaucrats to either perform of perish, the Centre has compulsorily retired two IPS officers of the Chattisgarh cadre. A M Juri and K C Agarwal were compulsorily retired on charges of being inefficient.

Centre retires two IPS officers, one for illegal 2nd marriage

Juri is currently posted as assistant inspector general (planning and provisioning), while Agarwal was with police telecommunication department. Juri was scheduled to retire in 2019 and Agrawal was slated for retirement in 2020. He was retired for taking a second wife without annulling his first marriage.

This is the second time in recent months when the Home Ministry has acted against officials for inefficient performance or doubtful integrity. In the past two years over 130 officers have been given premature retirement. In a written reply to the Rajya Sabha, Union Minister, Jitendra Singh said that service records of 11,828 Group 'A' and 19,714 Group 'B' officers have been reviewed so far.

The action has been taken under All India Service Rule 16(3) that says the central government in consultation with the state government concerned can retire an officer of the service in public interest after serving them notice.

In January, the home ministry acted against two other IPS officers-- Raj Kumar Dewangan from the 1992 batch of Chhattisgarh cadre and Mayank Sheel Chohan from the 1998 batch of the AGMU (Arunachal, Goa, Mizoram and Union Territory) cadre serving them notices of compulsory retirement.
