Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Police Service

The acronym DANIPS stands for "NCT of Delhi, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep, Daman & Diu , and Dadra & Nagar Haveli Police Service". It is a federal police service in India, administering Delhi and the Union Territories of India. It was earlier called the Union Territories Police Service. It is a civil service of the Government of India. Officers of the service are recruited directly through the Civil Services Examination and are responsible for the law & order and policing functions of the National Capital, Delhi , and the Union Territories. They form a feeder cadre of the Indian Police Service.

Selection Criteria

DANIPS officers are recruited directly through the rigorous Civil Services Examination conducted by Union Public Service Commission every year. Moreover, the cadre is augmented by the promotion of non-gazetted officers to the DANIPS.

The Civil Services Examination has a three-stage competitive selection process. At stage one, there is an objective type examination called the preliminary exam. This is a qualifying examination. It consists of a General Studies paper and an aptitude test. Only the candidates who pass this can appear for the "Main Examination" which consists of seven + two papers (Two papers - English and regional language paper are only qualifying while seven papers carry marks). Each candidate has to select an optional subject (two papers) and to take four General Studies papers, an Essay, an English language paper , and a regional language paper. This is followed by an interview.

Two-thirds of the strength is filled directly by DANIPS officers and the remaining are promoted from the non-gazetted police officers of the Union Territories. Source
