PSI ane ASI ni Khali Jagyao Ni Mahiti Latest News Report
A sub-inspector (SI) is generally in command of few police personnel (with head constables, the equivalent of corporals, commanding police outposts). He is the lowest ranked officer who under Indian Police rules and regulations can file a charge sheet in court, and is usually the first investigating officer. Officers subordinate to him cannot file charge sheets, but can only investigate cases on his behalf. He can be the station house officer in some of the states like Kerala.
A sub-inspector ranks above an assistant sub-inspector of police (ASI) and below an inspector (who usually supervises a group of police stations). Most sub-inspectors are directly recruited into the police and have better educational qualifications than lower-ranking police officers.
Specialised units such as the Central Armed Reserve Police Force, State Armed Reserve Police and Armed Battalions use the same rank, but generally these officers do not have any investigative powers. There are also specialist non-investigative officers in other Indian law enforcement agencies, such as sub-inspector (band) and sub-inspector (motor transport).
The rank insignia for a sub-inspector is two (five point) stars, and a red and blue striped ribbon at the outer end of the shoulder straps. This is similar to the insignia of a subedar in the Indian Army. The assistant sub-inspector will have one (five point) star, and a red and blue striped ribbon at the outer end of the shoulder straps. This is similar to the insignia of a naib subedar in the Indian Army. The rank insignia for principal sub-inspector and additional sub-inspector are one and the same.
For the post of Sub Inspector and Assistant Sub Inspector, Staff Selection Commission recruits eligible candidates on national level in various Central Armed Police Forces like CRPF, ITBP, CBI, SSB CISF, BSF and SI.
In 2017 total number of vacancies announced by SSC in CPO SI was 2221. Apart from SSC, all states government police departments conduct examinations to recruit Sub Inspectors.
