Centre Mulls Separate IPS Test

the right candidates into the Indian Police Service (IPS).

The Home Ministry has told its parliamentary standing committee that it was
“examining” the suggestion for holding a separate selection process for IPS. It
is a suggestion that the committee has also endorsed.

attracting the right candidates with enough inclination to get into policing.

“The committee is aware that the UPSC conducts examination
