The picture at the prestigious Dr Ambedkar College, Shivaji Science College, Dhanwate National College is full of quest, full of ambitions, and, of course, dreams. And these colleges are, too, witnessing a totally different scenario: The colleges are the centers of the exams, not for the students, but for policemen, who are undergoing the tests for becoming the Police Sub-Inspectors.

The Maharashtra Home Department, after full 13 years, has provided an opportunity to constables, head constables and Assistant Police Inspectors (APIs) to directly become Police Sub-Inspectors (PSIs) by the examinations specifically held for the very purpose.

And a total of 2000 policemen from Nagpur city, and 2200 policemen in the Nagpur Range, are trying their luck by all-out efforts and hard work to achieve the glory. A total of 40,000 aspirants in the State including from Nagpur City, Range have been appearing for the “dream” examinations since past two days. The number of policemen from Nagpur City giving the examination stands at 2000 including women police.

The three-day examination started from August 30 at four centers namely Dr Ambedkar College, Shivaji Science College, Dhanwate National College and the Regional Police Training School (RPTS). Today is the last day of the exam.The information in this connection was provided by the sources in the Police Commissionerate in Nagpur. The Nagpur Range DIG Dr Manojkumar Sharma, said that the total number of policemen appearing for the examination in the Nagpur Range including Nagpur, Chandrapur, Bhandara, and Wardha District stands at 2200.

Similarly, the Gadchiroli Range DIG Ravindra Kadam said, a total of 1100 policemen including 35 women police in the Naxal-infested area are appearing for the examination that may give them a dream turn to their career. This is the first that the constables, head constables and ASIs in the Range have been given the opportunity to become PSIs after carving out of the Gadchiroli District.

The Maharashtra Home Department is conducting the examination first time after 2001. The only condition for appearing the examination is 10-year service in police department. There are policemen appearing for the examination who have completed 20-25 years of service. Now, a terrible dilemma has gripped them. If a 10-year service policeman becomes the PSI, then they would find themselves in such an awkward situation that they shudder to even think.

However, there are such policemen who are on the verge of retirement within 4-6 months. They have distanced themselves from the examination. Becoming PSIs for 3-4 months and getting transferred to other places at this age is not a good choice. Better sit home, is the bone of contention.
