<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Two IPS officers from Chhattisgarh were dismissed from service citing non-performance after an approval from the Appointments Committee of Cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.AM Juri, who belongs to the 2000-batch of the Indian Police Service, and KC Agrawal, who joined the IPS in 2002, were removed following a recommendation of the Chhattisgarh government, sources said.The Home Ministry — the nodal authority for administration of Indian Police Service officers — issued an order for removing them on Saturday after reviewing the performance of the two DIG rank officers.Juri, who joined the state police service in 1983, was promoted to the IPS in 2000, while Agrawal joined the state police service in 1985 and was promoted to IPS in 2002.They were removed as per the All India Services Rules – 1958 “in the public interest” after extensive review of the service performance of the two officers, who have completed 15 years of qualifying service.Performance review of an all-India service officer is conducted twice, first after the completion of 15 years of qualifying service, and then after 25 years.According to the service rules, the Central Government may, in consultation with the state government concerned, require a member of the service to retire in public interest, after giving at least three-month notice in writing or as many month’s pay and allowances in lieu of such notice.Another Home ministry official said there were complaints of alleged misconduct by the two officers.In January, Mayank Sheel Chohan, a 1998-batch Union Territory cadre officer, and Raj Kumar Dewangan, a 1992-batch Chhattisgarh cadre officer, were removed from the service on similar grounds.
