IG, Jharkhand sector

Jharkhand Sector came into existence in the year 2011. Since then, it has been in the forefront in dealing with LWE problems in the state of Jharkhand. I have joined on 07 July 2022 and feel privileged & proud of leading this Sector.

With operational jurisdiction over 04 Ranges, 19 GD Battalions, 02 elite CoBRA Battalions, 01 RAF Battalion, 01 AWS, 01 Mahila Coy & 01 Coy of VIP Security Battalion, Jharkhand Sector has played a defining role in curtailing Left Wing Extremism to restrict pockets in Jharkhand State. The Sector with its Headquarters at Ranchi(Tac Latehar), also exercises administrative authority over 02 Ranges, 02 Group Centers, 01 Composite Hospital and 08 GD Battalions which are deployed in various challenging turfs across the Country.

We are working in close coordination with Jharkhand Police in intensifying targeted operations against Naxal commanders so as to curtail their nefarious designs.

Grievance redressal of force personnel will be my top priority. All effort will be made by Sector, Range, GC & CH to ensure that our Jawan in the field faces no problem and is mentally free to tackle with the challenges on ground.
