Give serious thought before censuring: CAT to cops
The Central Administrative Tribunal has asked Delhi Police to give a "serious thought" before censuring an officer as it could negatively affect his promotion prospects.
"Even though, there are instructions to state that unless the censures may be on the allegations of corruption and moral turpitude, the same may not be taken into consideration in case of promotion, but the law that has evolved is that overall service record is relevant for the purpose.
"That being so, while proposing to visit a police officer with the penalty of censure, the concerned authority is to give serious thought," the Tribunal bench, comprising Chairman V K Bali and Vice Chairman L K Joshi, said.
