    Hello

    Let me make you understand you clearly.
    IPS stands for Indian Police Services and as name suggests it is a service to the civilians.
    SP stands for superintendant of police which is a rank of Indian Police Services.
    SP belongs to IPS.

    Like in army there is rank called captain,then tell me how can you say which is bigger whether army or captain.
    Like there is a indian cricket team ,there is captain of the team and vice captain.
    Similarly ,you can not ask which is bigger indian cricket team or captain of indian cricket team.
    captain of Indian cricket team belongs to Indian cricket team.

    So SP is a rank of IPS.

    Hi,

    IPS (Indian Police Service)

    SP (Superintendent of Police)

    SP is a rank of Indian Police services.

    Therefore comparison of rank is not possible or good choice.

    In other words,

    SP belongs to IPS.

    I think you Understand it.

    Do not think comparison of Rank.

    SP is a rank of IPS.

    Good luck............................

    Actually you don't understand the concept......IPS is an category but S.P is a post in that category. If you join as an IPS officer you will become ASP or DSP in the beginning for 2 years then you will become S.P.
