Is equivalent in status to Lt Gen only if selected for empanelment as Addl Secy to Govt of India
*Note on Appointments in the Indian Police Service : The Distt police in charge is known by variable nomenclature in different States. For example, irrespective of Grade, the said officer is known as SSP in Punjab
& UP but SP in Haryana and DCP in Metros. A Selection Grade IPS officer is also sometimes referred to as SSP. JAG Officer posted in Police HQrs is known as AIG.

*Officers of the rank of DIG, IGP, Addl DGP and DGP are only equated with their respective counterparts of the Army if selected to hold these appointments through Central empanelment under Govt of India. For
example, there may be an officer holding the appointment of DGP in a State but when the same officer is posted at the centre in a CPO, he/she may be placed two steps lower as an IGP.
