Software to help hard and soft postings within CRPF
With an aim to maintain transparency in transfers between hard and soft postings within the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) a software-based transfer policy for all the CRPFs’ personnel will be implemented soon.
This software has been designed after the instructions of Union Home Minister Amit Shah in January last year. The development of the application was delayed because of COVID-19 induced restrictions in 2020.
The next round of posting in December will hopefully be done through this system
The officials also said that the trial of the software is in its final stages and so far the test results have been satisfactory and soon they will be presented to the Union Home Ministry for final review.
The system will prevent anomalies and favouritism while posting security personnel from one place to another, the CRPF spokesman said, adding that the concept of ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ posting may be effectively implemented.
However, he also said that 80 percent of the force has been deployed in Jammu and Kashmir, Left Wing Extremism areas, and the Northeast.
“In this system, all personnel of the paramilitary forces will be given multiple options to opt for the next posting as per his or her last posting, nature of the job, and other factors. Therefore, they will have an idea of where they can be posted for the next tenure,” a source in the force said.
“A transparent transfer mechanism based on a software application will not only reduce the unnecessary delays in approvals of transfer but will also do away with favouritism”, the officials said.
In general, all personnel of the paramilitary forces will be given multiple options to opt for the next posting as per his or her last posting, nature of job, and other factors, therefore, they will have an idea of where they can be posted for the next tenure,” a source in the Force said.
The move is also expected to lead to a reduction in stress of the personnel deployed in hard postings with inherent travails amid vagaries of nature and dynamic security challenges besides being away from their families, he added.
“Timely grant of leave, transfer from hard to soft posting have been a major cause for grievance among the force personnel, especially the middle and lower-rung staffers, and now these grievances can be addressed through the software-based application,” a senior official in a paramilitary force said.
