- On Tuesday Mr. P. Kisan Rao announced his retirement due to old age. The governments gave him consecutive extensions ranging from one to three years.
- The Government of Telangana
Mr. P Kisan Rao had joined the police service as a Sub-Inspector at Suryapet in 1966. He was retired as a non- cadre SP at the age of 58 in 2001. Later he was conferred with the IPS cadre and allotted to its 1994 batch and the TDP government gave him a one-year extension. When he was again retired in 2003, consecutive governments thereafter gave him extensions ranging from one to three years. Therefore Mr. Rao served his last 33 years only in the intelligence department.
On Tuesday Mr. Rao announced his retirement due to old age. Perhaps he will be the only IPS officer in the country to have worked on extension of service without a break in the same post for 18-and-a-half years post-retirement as SP in 2003.
