Promotion Policy – Growth Opportunities for Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) in CISF

After joining CISF as an ASI, you are liable to get promoted to the rank of Sub Inspector, mainly after five years of continuous service. However, the chances of such promotions is quite less as the promotional exercises are carried out on the basis of zonal security and you have very little chances of getting your first promotion before minimum 7-8 years of service. There are departmental exams as well to fast track the process, but there also the seniority factor comes into play and it becomes difficult to rise to the next level.
