At least 20 vehicles, comprising 10 Toyota Innovas, two Honda Cities, four Maruti Ciaz, two Tata Hexas and two Mahindra Scorpios, are currently attached with the nine IPS officers, comprising one from Punjab Police cadre, one from Haryana Police cadre and seven from AGMUT police cadre from Delhi in Chandigarh.

The figures were procured about the vehicles attached with the IPS officers, the quantity and cost of the consumption of fuel between January 1, 2016 and July 15, 2022. The information was received last month.

IPS officers in Chandigarh Police come on three-year deputation from Delhi Police (AGMUT), Punjab Police and Haryana Police. Information related to the fuel consumption procured under the RTI also covers the predecessors of the current serving IPS officers in Chandigarh.

The information suggests in the fleet of vehicles of IPS officers many vehicles were changed in the last five years.

In 2016, the IG (UT) was using an Innova and Honda City but in 2022 he possessed one Ciaz and an Innova. Similarly, a Ciaz was also in the fleet of SSP (UT) in 2016-17 but later the Ciaz was replaced by the Innova. At least two Corollas had been attached with SSP (traffic/security) and SSP (headquarters) from 2016 to 2018 and later Innova replaced the Corollas.
