Punjab-cadre woman IPS officer Jagdale Nilambari Vijay to take charge as Chandigarh SSP
Amidst all the ruckus of the stalking case, Chandigarh gets its first woman SSP- a post that was lying vacant since 2003.
"The MHA (ministry of home affairs) orders (regarding appointment) came yesterday. It may take two to three days for relieving (from present post)," Vijay said today.
She will hold the post for three years. UT Administrator VP Singh Badnore had earlier reportedly recommended the name of Nilambari Vijay for the post to the Union Home Ministry.
Vijay is presently posted as the commandant-cum-deputy director (indoor) at Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Police Academy, Phillaur.
She had served in various districts including Ludhiana, Ropar and Pathankot.
The SSP post in Chandigarh has been lying vacant after Sukhchain Singh Gill, a 2003-batch IPS officer, was repatriated to Punjab in December last year.
SP Eish Singhal is presently officiating as the UT, SSP.
