Mr. Satish Chand Mathur joined the Indian Police Service in 1981. He retired from Director General of Police, Maharashtra, holding the apex post for nearly 2 years.
In his long public service of nearly 37 years he held various sensitive and challenging assignments such as Superintendent of Police of highly communally fragile district of Aurangabad, Joint Commissioner of Police, Traffic, Mumbai City, Commissioner of Police, Pune, Director General of Anti-Corruption Bureau, Maharashtra culminating at the helm of an over 2.25 lakh force of Maharashtra Police. Moreover, he served the Central Government, i.e. the Central Bureau of Investigation from 1996 to 2003 and held the post of Director, Security, Air India, Director Vigilance and Executive Director, Ground Handling, Air India from 2007 to 2012.
He has left his indelible mark on each aspect of police and general administration. His firm and tactful handling of sensitive and tricky issues has seen organisation emerge a winner at all times; his rigorous training at Louisiana State University in handling and countering explosives and commando training at our very own National Security Guard, Manesar, Haryana sowed the seeds of his success in handling both urban terrorism and the naxal challenge.
